Online retail alliance set up to lobby on privacy, taxes and other online issues

Major online retailers, including eBay and Amazon, have joined forces to create an industry alliance to lobby congress and other legislators on issues such as privacy, internet access, taxation of online purchases and others. The publicity associated with the launch does not suggest the position they are likely to take on privacy, so stay tuned as the group will have its first meeting in the near future.
