Microsoft, Google & Others Call For Unified Federal Privacy Protection

Microsoft bravely took part in the search privacy panel we did at our SES New York show earlier this year (coverage here and here), saying it would welcome better US federal protections on privacy issues. Why? It would let Microsoft and the searchers it serves know exactly what data government agencies could and could not have. Now Microsoft, along with Google and other tech companies, are pushing to make this happen.

Calling for federal consumer privacy protection over at the Official Google Blog talks about Google getting behind the organized effort and points to a statement letter (PDF) asking for a unified federal approach to consumer privacy. The effort is by the Consumer Privacy Legislative Forum, part of the Center For Democracy & Technology.

Companies signing the statement are:

  • Kodak
  • eBay
  • Eli Lilly
  • Google
  • Hewitt and Associates
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • Intel
  • Microsoft
  • Oracle
  • Procter & Gamble
  • Sun
  • Symantec
