Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] First, how users are informed about default settings in their software and devices. That's a crucial aspect: is the default option to allow tracking, or to decline consent? The Commission services were very clear on this point in their letter to the W3C: at installation or first use, users must be informed about the importance of their DNT choice. They must be told about any default setting; and prompted to keep or to change it. Because without that, most users aren't making an informed choice.
