The Federal Trade Commission announced today that it is extending the deadline for public comments on its December 1, 2010 report, “Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change: a Proposed Framework for Businesses and Policy Makers.”  In light of the complex issues raised by the report, a number of organizations requested an extension of the original January 31, 2011 deadline.  Stakeholders now have until February 18, 2011, to submit their comments.
