US lawmakers announced the plans to introduce 'Do Not Track' in legislation that will let the Internet users block companies from gathering information about their online activities. 
Senator Jay Rockefeller, a Democrat from West Virginia, said his 'Do Not Track Online Act of 2011' will offer a 'simple, straightforward way for people to stop companies from tracking their every move on the Internet.'
'Consumers have a right to know when and how their personal and sensitive information is being used online -- and most importantly to be able to say 'no thanks' when companies seek to gather that information without their approval,' Rockefeller said in a statement.
The Draft has been introduced by Joe Barton, a Republican from Texas, and Edward Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts, in the House of Representatives seperately for the safety of Children online. US senators John Kerry and John McCain had introduced last month a bill on the online privacy, which will allow user to make companies grant to access their data while online. The former Democratic and Republican presidential candidates said that the consumer had right to allow company or deny for collecting the information basically personal. He say we need to keep balance between the personal information of Web users and the needs of businesses to conduct electronic commerce.
The importance of bill is more after the theft of more crucial data from the sony in the recent week. What will be the result of the law and how it will help user future will going to tell.
