Re: FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez's speech

John, it seems like a good principal from the Chairwoman, that should be applied everywhere.  Aren't we USER advocates here?  Let's give user's the benefit of an informed choice.

Best,

Chris

Brooks,

I think you're taking that out of context. She was referring to required disclosures about advertisements.  Things like revealing that the celebrity promoting a product is a paid spokesperson.

Cheers,
John

Curious timing on this speech coming during the discussion of UAs and UA requirements.  I'd point to page 4:

"If a platform does not let you make a clear and conspicuous disclosure when one is required, then the platform should not be used.  Period."

My sense from that statement would be a UA should not implement DNT if it required a second UA to access another location for disclosure and choice.

Colleagues,

FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramiez has just made an interesting speech to the American Advertising Federation that touches on our efforts to develop a Do Not Track standard.

I've attached it as a PDF file.

Regards,
John
