PFF Hill Briefing 5/24 @ Noon: Nuts & Bolts of Online Privacy, Advertising, Notice & Choice

In light of the discussion draft of privacy legislation recently released by Chairman Rick Boucher (our comments here and here), PFF is holding a special "Nuts & Bolts" luncheon briefing on the technical underpinnings of the ongoing privacy policy debate on Monday, May 24, 2010, 12-2 p.m. in 2123 Rayburn House Office Building.

Our panel of distinguished experts will provide an overview of the technical mechanics of online advertising and associated concerns about data collection, and discuss challenges and opportunities for empowering privacy-sensitive consumers to manage their online privacy without breaking the advertising business model that sustains most Internet content and services. I'll moderate a terrific panel:
