One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Ars Technica published an article titled House updates 1988 privacy law to allow online sharing of Netflix choices.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday easily passed legislation that updates video privacy laws to make it easier for online rental services such as Netflix to share information about customers’ viewing habits with user consent. Current law requires written consent to share video records, but the new law would allow companies to obtain consent over the web. The two-page bill needs to be approved by the Senate before it becomes law.
