Sen. John "Jay" Rockefeller (D-WV) will introduce a do-not-track bill next week, The Washington Post reports. The Do-Not-Track Online Act of 2011 "would allow consumers to block websites and marketers from tracking their activity on the Internet," the report states. "Consumers have a right to know when and how their personal and sensitive information is being used online--and, most importantly, to be able to say 'no thanks' when companies seek to gather that information without their approval," Rockefeller said in a press release. The bill would task the Federal Trade Commission with enforcement of the law. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
