Subject: Privacy groups are asking FTC to change Amazon.com privacy policy
By The Associated Press, 12/5/2000

NEW YORK - Two privacy groups, unhappy about Amazon.com's new policies
on revealing customer buying habits, are asking federal regulators to
prevent the online retailer from making any disclosures unless
shoppers permit them.

Junkbusters Corp. and the Electronic Privacy Information Center made
the appeal to the Federal Trade Commission, which has intervened in
the past when other online retailers changed privacy policies and
sought to sell customer data.
