FTC Holds Workshop on Journalism in the Internet Age

Leave a comment

On December 1 and 2, the Federal Trade Commission held a workshop — "How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?" — exploring how the Internet has affected journalism and discussing a wide range of news-organization related issues, such as the economics of journalism in print and online, new business models for journalism online, and the ways in which journalism costs could be reduced while still maintaining quality. 
Commentators on this week’s workshop have noted that what was not discussed — notably behavioral advertising and other types of targeted online advertising — is as important as issues that were discussed.  Future regulation of consumer privacy and behavioral advertising is still unsettled as legislators and regulators debate the scope of potential privacy legislation and new rules or models that will regulate the industry.
Further debate on this topic is likely to continue at the Federal Trade Commission’s first Privacy Roundtable that will be held on Monday, December 7, at the Federal Trade Commission Conference Center in Washington, D.C.  A live webcast of this conference will be available at the FTC’s website.
