Complimentary October 6th Teleconference with Professors Chris Hoofnagle and Joseph Turow, Authors of Study on Consumers' Feelings About Tailored Advertsing
As recently reported in the New York Times and elsewhere, two prominent professors conducted a survey of American's feelings about online tracking for the delivery of tailored advertising.

The Future of Privacy Forum will be hosting the authors of the study, Professors Chris Hoofnagle and Joseph Turow, for a teleconference with Q&A on Tuesday, October 6th at Noon ET.
