The Mobile Wireless Web, Data Services and Beyond:
Emerging Technologies and Consumer Issues
December 11-12, 2000
The Federal Trade Commission hosted a two-day, public workshop in December 2000, to examine emerging wireless Internet and data technologies and the privacy, security, and consumer protection issues they raise.
Mobile wireless Internet and data technologies raise many of the privacy and advertising issues previously considered by the Commission. Accordingly, the goal of the workshop was to educate government officials and other interested parties about emerging wireless technologies, and to provide a forum for discussion of the privacy, security and consumer protection issues raised by these new technologies.
