In a blog post for the Information Accountability Foundation, Executive Director Martin Abrams writes about the IAF's "Fair and Open Use Act," which is the organization's model for U.S. privacy legislation that works toward "preventing data misuse and allowing innovative use of data that benefits people." Abrams claims that IAF's draft legislation "provides controls for individuals," but those controls are trumped by "the safe and fair processing of personal data to ensure data serves people." Abrams added that the model "allows organizations to innovate with data" by using "sound, robust, accountable and demonstrable processes." Abrams said the model, which features nine articles, aims to have educational value at the very least, adding "we do believe it will be informative to those that have the responsibility to legislate."
