FCC Privacy NPRM [was Re: GeoIP database]

I have not yet read all of the 147 pages of the FCC Privacy NPRM -
consumer-privacy. But it may be worth noting, especially for this
audience, that the FCC proposes considering things like IP addresses and
geo-location information to be Customer Proprietary Information.

While IANAL it seems that this could perhaps complicate efforts to make
GeoIP services more accurate. But who knows.


P.S. While these proposed rules would only initially apply to ISPs, from
what I understand following adoption there will be a move for so-called
parity such that any app or edge provider in the US might have to meet the
same standards.

Pretty much all ISPs should take a look at this NPRM. Although its advertised as a "privacy" rule-making, it has a several sections on ISP
data security and data breach notification, including mandatory reporting
to the FCC and FBI.
