OTA today issued public support of S. 2171, the "Location Privacy Protection Act of 2014”. S. 2171 is an important bill to help ensure consumer protection, while not stifling legitimate usage or innovation by business or law enforcement. It includes important changes reflecting input of industry and consumer stakeholders, notably liability cap and increased flexibility in compliance mechanisms. Equally as important are the provisions preserving the rights of State Attorney Generals in enforcing any stronger, state statute. We endorse the Location Privacy Protection Act of 2014 and urge others to support this critical bill. More at http://www.franken.senate.gov/files/documents/140327Locationprivacy.pdf
