FCC Mobile Privacy Notice Published — Comments Due July 13

Posted in Federal Communications Commission, Mobile

As we reported, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) recently announced that it is seeking comments on the protection of data stored on mobile devices by wireless phone carriers. The FCC has noted that the comments it previously received on the issue five years ago are already “badly out of date.”  The Federal Register published the FCC’s announcement today, so the deadline for commenting is now set: comments are due by July 13 and reply comments are due by July 30.
