The man who heads the National Association of Attorneys General says that Internet privacy has become such a focal point in the news over the last several months that his organization must do more to increase action.
Maryland attorney general Doug Gansler was recently named president of NAAG and says that his most important task will be doing more to increase consumers' privacy controls online, according to the Maryland Reporter
"Clearly, what the Internet companies are doing is an invasion of privacy," Gansler told the news source. "It certainly could very well be an acceptable and appropriate invasion of privacy. Most of the things we look up on the Internet are free, but there's a legitimate interest for those companies to make money. Where to draw that line is the dialogue we'll be having in NAAG."Eduard Goodman
