Yet another hearing has been called related to Internet privacy.
The House Telecommunications Subcommittee scheduled a hearing Thursday on deep-packet inspection.
That is the ability of network operators to see traffic on their network, which the committee expects to be deployed across commercial networks.
"Taking a magnifying glass to the individual packets of data that traverse the network," the committee said in announcing the hearing, "raises questions relating to consumer privacy, as well as copyright [and] network management."
Among the witnesses will be Robert Dykes, chairman of NebuAd, the company that has seen its online targeted-marketing partnerships draw flak from legislators.
There were two hearings on Internet advertising and privacy on the Hill Tuesday, one each in the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. That followed a hearing last week in the Senate Commerce Committee.
