I very much appreciate the FTC's efforts in this arena. The difficulties I perceive include cases in which one or more of the following apply:
a. multiple computers are used by the same person (our household, for example, has at least three at any given time)
b. a computer is used by more than one person (our household, for example, has two people, each of whom may use any of the multiple computers)
c. a computer has more than one browser installed (our multiple computers have at least five browsers installed; each browser stores cookies in a manner of which other browsers may not be aware)
In addition to the obvious need of acquiring the "good will compliance" of all involved website authors, I hope the above are technical obstacles are matters the FTC is able to keep in mind.
