23 Dec My Case with the FTC has been Nominated for the Privies!
If you’re not familiar with The Privies, they are awards that honor “Dubious Achievements in Privacy Law”. These awards, created by privacy expert Mr. Stewart Baker, are broken down into 3 categories. My case with the FTC has fallen under the category, “Dumbest Privacy Case of the Year”. Needless to say, I agree and I want that golden Privy!
The award in Mr. Baker’s own words:
“The plan is to let the public vote for their favorite privacy law abuses, giving special weight to votes cast by those who know privacy law best. The idea is to combine the best of the Academy Awards and the People’s Choice Awards. We
should give the awards a name, like the Tonies or the Emmies, except that for dubious achievements in privacy law there’s only one possible name for the award. The Privies.
Winners in each category will be eligible to receive their very own Golden Privy trophy…”
So I need your help to bring home the gold! If you could PLEASE visit this link and cast your vote for FTC V. LabMD as “Dumbest Privacy Case of the Year” we can bring more attention to this crazy story and put some pressure on the government to finally make some changes!
Please share and spread the word.
