NetChoice is a coalition of consumers, e-commerce companies and trade associations that includes such members as eBay, AOL, Expedia, Oracle, Yahoo! and more. It lobbies for removal of barriers to online commerce and releases a monthly list of laws that (in its view) threaten free use of the Internet. This month’s top ten include the “Do Not Track” bill that restricts targeted advertising, laws to prevent teenagers from sharing their addresses and phone numbers on social networking sites, expansion of sales taxes, and more. See the list for yourself and determine which of these proposed laws, compiled by iAWFUL (Internet Advocates’ Watchlist For Ugly Laws) may have a negative impact on your company’s business and operations.
