I think it can work voluntarily, however, thats why I posted to the P3P
list.  How easy is it to get websites to volunatarily publish P3P policies?

Many vendors spend alot of money to get TRUSTe certified.  This is
essentially an assurance for marketing purposes.  A Clearware label could be
freely used to help improve consumer awareness and show their commitment to
the end-user while differentiating themselves from competitors.

I have been discussing with some vendors who are interested in using the
idea, but it's slow to get moving.  Getting vendor participation is the
bigest issue so far.

I like that idea, Brian. I'm guessing you've already thought of this,
but can it work without labelling being mandatory? Presumably the purveyors
of deceptive software are the least likely people to comply. I'd be
interested to know your thoughts.
