Advertising Groups Call for More Time to Weigh in on Proposed FCC RulePDF
Ronald Camhi was mentioned in the article, “Advertising groups call for more time to weigh in on proposed FCC rule,” published in Legal NewsLine on May 13, 2016. The article addresses the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) new proposed privacy rules that would limit broadband providers' ability to engage in online behavioral advertising. A coalition of advertising industry organizations has voiced concern over the new regulatory regime, and has requested more time to comment on the proposed rules. Mr. Camhi notes that the FCC’s proposal could potentially create a complex patchwork of federal privacy regulations; the Federal Trade Commission already monitors consumer privacy issues in the technology and telecommunications space, meaning that the FCC’s narrow focus on internet service providers could potentially foster inequity and confusion.
