TIA Urges NTIA to Focus Privacy Protection on How Information Is Used, Collected, and Safeguarded, Not on Which Technology Is Used for Those Functions

Washington, DC - The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) announced today it has submitted comments regarding The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) "Multistakeholder Process to Develop Consumer Data Privacy Codes of Conduct." TIA cautioned against an overly-burdensome regulatory scheme that would ultimately hurt consumers, and provided a number of specific comments related to the NTIA multistakeholder process.

In its comments, TIA said:

"Policy solutions should not limit an individual consumer's choice to choose the appropriate balance between privacy and these innovations that provide convenience, speed or easier communication.

"Consumers need to be given more credit for understanding their choices in opting for convenience. Regulations that greatly hinder the availability of information and implement burdensome technical safeguards would be costly to consumers in the form of less availability of free services and content and more expensive products. ...

"The focus of privacy protection should be on how information is used, collected, and safeguarded, not on which technology is used for those functions. Technological convergence has made legal and regulatory distinctions between 'networked' and 'brick and mortar' consumer relationships irrelevant. Regulations based on invalid distinctions can fail in their purpose and do real economic harm by discouraging the adoption of network technologies."
