Speaking before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on March 16, Department of Commerce Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information Lawrence Strickling reiterated the need for Congress to enact a "Privacy Bill of Rights." Stricking's prepared remarks called for key elements of the legislation to include implementation of a Code of Conduct for online businesses and to empower the FTC to enforce the legislation. "This administration continues to make it clear that online privacy is one of its top concerns to be addressed this year," says Andrew Martin, an attorney with the technology law firm Scott & Scott, LLP. "The high priority given to addressing online privacy is overdue-innumerable people are now living their lives online, but in many ways, the current state of online living resembles the lawlessness of the Wild West."
