Report recommends self regulation for the internet
The US Federal Trade Commission has recommended that no
legislation should be passed on Internet privacy. In a new report entitled "Self-Regulation and Privacy Online" they argue that self regulation is the best way to protect consumer privacy on the Internet. According to the report, significant progress has already been made in this direction, but it also warns that there are some serious challenges which need to be faced.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
