Short Take: House subcommittee to meet on e-commerce, privacy

The House Commerce subcommittee on telecommunications will hold a hearing tomorrow on e-commerce and online privacy. The hearing will focus on data privacy legislation, including the Data Privacy Act of 1998, which lays out voluntary guidelines spammers should follow, such as providing an accurate return email address. The bill also prohibits marketing any personal medical information obtained through a Net access provider.
