SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Recognizing the vital importance of the 
Internet to U.S. innovation, prosperity, education, and political and 
cultural life, the Department has made it a top priority to ensure that 
the Internet remains open for innovation. The Department has assembled 
a newly created Internet Policy Task Force (Task Force) whose mission 
is to identify leading public policy and operational challenges in the 
Internet environment. The Task Force leverages expertise across many 
bureaus, including those responsible for domestic and international 
information and communications technology policy, international trade, 
cybersecurity standards and best practices, intellectual property, 
business advocacy, and export control.
    As part of the Task Force, NTIA and ITA are conducting a 
comprehensive review of the nexus between privacy policy and innovation 
in the Internet economy, which will include the issuance of a notice of 
inquiry. To facilitate the review, on May 7, 2010, NTIA will hold a 
public meeting to discuss stakeholder views and to facilitate further 
public discussion on privacy policy in the United States. The event 
will seek participation and comment from all Internet stakeholders, 
including the commercial, academic, and civil society sectors, on the 
impact of current privacy laws in the United States and around the 
world on the pace of innovation in the information economy. A 
discussion of whether current privacy laws serve consumer interests and 
fundamental democratic values is also anticipated.
    The agenda for the public meeting will be posted on NTIA's website 
at least one week prior to the meeting. This meeting will be webcast. 
The agenda and webcast information will be available on NTIA's website 
at www.ntia.doc.gov. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke is scheduled to 
deliver keynote remarks. Also participating with remarks will be NTIA's 
Administrator and Assistant Secretary Lawrence Strickling, the 
Department of Commerce's General Counsel Cameron Kerry, and other U.S. 
Government officials.
    The meeting will be open to members of the public on a first-come, 
first-served basis. The meeting will be physically accessible to people 
with disabilities. Individuals requiring accommodation services, such 
as sign language interpretation or other ancillary aids, should 
communicate their needs to Manu Bhardwaj at least two (2) days prior to
