It's a very hot topic Stateside and has enormous implications for online
advertising there. Privacy generally is so contentious that the Fast Foward
(http://www.fastinfo.org) initiative on net advertising was floating the
idea last year that all banner ads run on US sites might have to carry a
'P' for Privacy logo to indicate the advertiser complied with privacy and
other regulations. Moves like these coud well affect UK companies wishing
to run banners on US sites in terms of creative and complying with data
regulations. The COPP Act must also affect US operations over here given
SEC regs etc.
