Following up on the Princeton workshop [1] and widespread interest from both
industry and regulators [2] in standardizing Do Not Track technologies,
we're proposing a Tracking Protection Working Group, with a draft charter
now available.


Feedback from the public (and this list in particular) would be most

Next steps will be to send the charter to the W3C Advisory Committee for
review. After that step and approval from the Director, we expect the group
to form and work to begin by the end of August.

Discussion is welcome on this list; if you wish to send comments offline,
please contact me <npdoty@w3.org> and Thomas Roessler <tlr@w3.org>.
