Re: ISSUE-130: Web-wide exceptions - iare there objections to permitting those?

While everyone should have reasonable time, I am concerned that companies are now raising concerns at this late hour.  ValueClick already noted its concern about the impact of DNT when it filed its most recent annual report with the SEC--suggesting they have known about these issues for a considerable time.  But if there is something that would impact such things as ValueClick's online lead generation activities, they should explain it now.

Many thanks for the collaborative efforts, inc. last week.

We still have questions and serious concerns about how this proposed language will impact third parties in the online advertising ecosystem.  There are a number of specific issues that still need to be clarified and we respectfully suggest that further thought is necessary on how this may work in practice.  Since the stated goal here is a standard that can be implemented and voluntarily adopted by a significant part of industry, we must thoroughly review the potential impact of this language on all parities in the ecosystem, including third parties, before this issue is closed.
