Karen Coyle featured in March issue of PrivacyTechNewsWorld

PrivacyTechNewsWorld quoted Karen Coyle, spokesperson for CPSR, extensively in "Groups Claim Amazon Patent Targets Kids."
"People who log onto Amazon and buy something give up their personal information voluntarily, explained Karen Coyle of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility. But "if someone sends you a gift, you haven't agreed to give up your information, so it's gathering information about people who have not agreed to be customers."
-- from opening paragraph of PrivacyTechNewsWorld March 15 article.

The article discusses the concerns of privacy advocates over's new patent for "a system and method of determining the age of an item recipient, such a gift recipient," that they believe will jeopardize the privacy of children.
