At today FTC's "Exploring Privacy" roundtable event at Berkeley Law School, were heard a lunchtime address from Daniel J. Weitzner, Associate Administrator for Policy, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) at the Department of Commerce. Down below is a brief summary of his remarks. (Berin Szoka and have been live-tweeting the event at @AdamThierer and @BerinSzoka).


  • Obama Administration is looking at nexus between privacy & innovation

  • Success of Internet has depended upon creative use of information

  • Predictability and certainty is imp for both consumers and companies on this front

  • Believes we CAN have both innovation and privacy protection; but there will be some tensions

  • Challenge of the 3rd decade of Internet policymaking = to get together set of policies to bring security to Net while preserving freedom

  • Does domestic & global patchwork of #privacy policies hurt or help innovation?

  • Need to take a hard look at the traditional notice & choice framework

  • Rules for COLLECTION or USE of data is key question

  • Concepts of "accountability" ... to what or whom?

  • a Notice of Inquiry coming from NTIA about privacy to help shape privacy policy for Obama Admin
