No ISPs at Senate Hearing Today Despite Invites

NebuAd is there

NebuAd is there. Google’s there. Microsoft showed up, as did the privacy advocates. The Federal Trade Commission came, too. But the ISPs are nowhere to be found at this morning’s Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation hearing on the Privacy Implications of Online Advertising. Democratic Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota isn’t happy about it either. In his opening remarks, he lamented, “I had invited Internet Service Providers today, and they had declined the invitation.”

Tsk, tsk. The Senator isn’t giving up, though. He told attendees he will hold another hearing for ISPs alone because he thinks the committee needs to hear from them, when it comes to recent behavioral targeting trials with firms like NebuAd.
