House Republicans seek to revamp internet privacy rules

A bill that would explicitly lay out the terms under which internet service providers (ISPs) can collect and distribute information on their customers and when they can get opt-in and opt-out permission is being sponsored by Tennessee Republican representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).

The bill, known as the Balancing the Rights of Web Surfers Equally and Responsibly Act or BROWSER Act for short, would entail ISPs needing to get user consent for using collected information for purposes other than billing, security or emergency response. Furthermore, the bill would set the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as the governing body of internet privacy rules.

The bill can be read here.
