Microsoft in Capitol Hill showdown with privacy groups
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "Microsoft's meeting Wednesday on Capitol Hill with consumer privacy advocates received a "good" rating by attending groups, as the organizations squared off over the company's release of Microsoft's Windows XP operating system, its Passport login and its .Net strategy. Following a two-hour meeting with Microsoft representatives, Ari Schwartz, associate director for the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), told NewsFactor Network that some headway had been made between opposing factions and that talks will continue."
