    FTC Commissioner Swindle to Discuss The Impact of The Patriot Act on
    Consumers' Privacy And Corporate Privacy Policies
    Commissioner Orson Swindle of the Federal Trade Commission
    (http://www.ftc.gov/bios/commissioners.htm#Swindle) will be available
    on Thursday, November 29th after 3 p.m. to discuss the impact of the
    recently enacted Patriot Act on consumers, corporations and Internet
    commerce. Commissioner Swindle's availability follows his
    participation in an audio conference call hosted by Communications
    Daily titled, "Privacy and the New Antiterrorism Act."
    Commissioner Swindle, a long-time advocate of market self-regulation,
    will focus his remarks on how the recent terrorist attacks have
    affected privacy issues. "In the minds of many, privacy may be
    perceived as being of lesser importance than it has been in the recent
    past due to the terrorist threat," Swindle has said. "It would appear
    that some are willing to sacrifice privacy for greater security in
    light of the threats. Finding that delicate and appropriate balance
    will be a challenge."
    Media representatives wishing to speak to the Commissioner about his
    views should contact Derick Rill, FTC Office of Public Affairs, at
    ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org
