Mr. Locke explained that the motivation for this initiative is “[b]ecause of the vital role the Internet plays in driving innovation throughout the economy, the Department has made it a top priority to ensure that the Internet remains open for innovation while promoting an environment respectful of individual privacy expectations.”

Please contact me about offering insight on this topic or joining in the submission of a comment pursuant to the NOI. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
