This testimony compilation is from the June 4, 2014 hearing on the "Location Privacy Protection Act of 2014" held before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Patrick Leahy: "Today, the Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law will discuss Senator Franken's Location Privacy Protection Act, which he reintroduced earlier this year. I commend the Subcommittee's Chairman for holding this important hearing and for his work on consumer privacy issues. With the explosion of smart technologies and mobile applications, now commonly referred to as 'apps,' American consumers face threats to privacy now like never before. Many of us carry smart devices, such as smartphones and tablets, at all times and use them for anything from navigational and social networking purposes to shopping and playing games. While this technology has brought many new benefits to consumers, it has also raised troubling questions and presented new challenges for how to protect individuals' privacy." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bea Hanson, Jessica Rich, Mark Goldstein, Brian Hill, Lou Mastria, Sally Greenberg, Robert D. Atkinson, and Cindy Southworth.
