Julie Brill was sworn in as a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission April 6, 2010.  Since joining the Commission, Ms. Brill has worked actively on issues most affecting today's consumers, including protecting consumers' privacy, encouraging appropriate advertising substantiation, guarding consumers from financial fraud, and maintaining competition in industries involving high tech and health care.  

There is a high level of current activity at the FTC: Google was recently assessed a record fine by the Commission to settle allegations of privacy violations; Facebook recently settled charges with the Commission over its privacy policy; The Commission recently published proposed changes to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) that would make third parties such as mobile application developers and ad networks that gather information from children under 13 responsible for obtaining parental permission before kids could use these services; The Commission also issued its final Report on Protecting Consumer Privacy, in which it called on companies to adopt best privacy practices. Commissioner Brill will take your questions on these topics and more.
