Dear Carl,
 
Thank you for the pointers to the IETF GeoPRIV Working Group and OMA.
 
As I understand it, the W3C Privacy Interest Group has not been formed as yet.
There is also a current proposal for a W3C Tracking Protection Working Group (see draft charter at [http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/charter-draft] http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/charter-draft).
 
Briefly, the IETF, IAB, W3C, ISOC, the Kantara Initiative, OASIS and others are working in the area of online privacy, sometimes on separate projects and sometimes on collaborative projects. For example, in December 2010, the IAB, W3C, ISOC and MIT jointly sponsored an Internet Privacy Workshop entitled: How can Technology help to improve Privacy on the Internet?
(Link to information regarding the workshop on the IAB website:[http://www.iab.org/activities/workshops/internet-privacy-workshop-2010]  
[http://www.iab.org/activities/workshops/internet-privacy-workshop-2010] http://www.iab.org/activities/workshops/internet-privacy-workshop-2010).
 
If you or anyone else in the Prov WG would be interested in learning more about various privacy activities being undertaken by the Internet technical community, I could put you in touch with the relevant people and/or provide a brief overview in one of our calls.
 
Regards,
Christine

Need to read the charter. I wonder if the W3C group is familiar with  the privacy/location standards work being done and the standards completed by  the IETF GeoPRIV Working Group. They have been at it since about 2003. And OMA  has also done a fair amount of work in the privacy area.

Hi all.
 
The W3C is proposing a Privacy Interest Group: [http://www.w3.org/2011/07/privacy-ig-charter] http://www.w3.org/2011/07/privacy-ig-charter.
 
Would it be useful to ask the W3C to include:
 
Provenance Working Group
Experience from the Provenance Working Group may    be useful in considering the best way to exchange data about personal data    (e.g. specified use, consent, duration, custody)
 
in the charter at item 3.1 (Dependencies and Liaisons)?
 
Thoughts?
 
Regards,
Christine
