Senate Schedules Online Privacy Hearing

The Senate Commerce Committee has scheduled a hearing on consumer
online privacy for July 27.

That follows last week's hearing in the same committee on"Protecting Youth in an Online world."

Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) has made it
clear he thinks the issue of online privacy, and particularly protecting kids
online, is a huge one, and has threatened to take action if industry does not
sufficiently self-regulate.

No word
on witnesses.
