+ - Complaint to FSA on Phorm's statements to market->

Submitted by

AlexanderHanff writes "NoDPI have sent a letter of complaint to the Financial Services Authority (FSA) regarding Phorm Inc.'s statements to the press and market news services regarding support of legal compliance from various UK Government Departments and Regulators.

Phorm claim that the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the Home Office and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (DBERR or BERR) have all cleared Phorm's WebWise technology as being fully compliant under UK and EU Law.

This is contrary to action taken by the European Commission earlier this week, who have initiated legal proceedings against the UK Government specifically for failing to uphold and enforce EU Privacy Directives regarding Phorm's covert trials with BT in 2006/2007.

Furthermore, NoDPI have produced statements from DBERR, ICO and the Home Office which contradict Phorm's statements to the press and market news services this week.

NoDPI are calling for the FSA to investigate whether or not Phorm's statements to the market can be seen as breaking the rules of trading as they are misleading and could even be interpretted as fraudulant."

+ - Sir Tim Berners-Lee to attend Privacy Debate-> 1

Submitted by

AlexanderHanff writes "On 11th March Sir Tim Berners-Lee along with other prominent guests will attend a House of Lords Round Table Event in the UK to discuss the use of Deep Packet Inspection for Behavioural Advertising. The European Commission have continued to press the UK public authorities on their inaction against covert trials of Phorms technology in 2006/2007 and have stated they may be forced to take action against the UK government if they do not enforce UK privacy laws. This is a big step for the campaign against such intrusive technology and it is set to be a very interesting day."
