No need for ISPs to tell you what info they’re slurping up

In a statement put out Friday, Ajit Pai masked the impact of the decision by claiming that there needed to be a “comprehensive and uniform framework to protect Americans’ online privacy,” while failing to provide any details about when and how that framework will be developed.

Pai also claimed that the rules were “not consistent with the FTC’s privacy standards” – a direct contradiction of what previous FCC chair Tom Wheeler argued in October when he said they were “in harmony with other key privacy frameworks and principles – including those outlined by the FTC and the Administration’s Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights.”

Under the rules, an ISP would have been required to notify consumers about what types of information they are collecting, as well as say how that information may be shared, and with whom.
