    Q1. What are three different practices used by organizations outside of the cosmetic industry that address regulatory issues?
    Let's look at intellectual, privacy, confidentiality, child abuse laws and regulations - for doctors and oter health professional, and Labor laws and regualtions through discussion and then look at the practices that address them.

    1. Intellectual property laws and regulations and privacy laws and regulations...
    E-commerce Lack of regulatory Laws When Tim Berners-Lee developed the World Wide Web in 1989, he wanted it to become a communications facilitator free from regulation (Berners-Lee, 1996). Unfortunately, this type of facility is just not commercially viable. If the World Wide Web is to be successfully utilized for eBusiness, regulatory bodies need to standardize practices across the globe. Although individual countries have implemented laws regarding computer crimes, these laws do not affect offenders outside of that sovereign state. International legislation must ensure security for all parties involved.
    Moving towards a solution: Laws regarding intellectual property should be continuously updated and there must be tougher penalties for online crimes. This may mean the end of Berners-Lee's regulation-free vision, but it provides an opportunity for a new, eCommerce-friendly online environment.

    What practices do organizations of to addressed privacy regulations?

    Privacy Regulations protects both ebusiness and customer when:

    • every web site should have some type of privacy policy. For assistance creating a privacy policy, refer to: http://www.the-dma.org/library/privacy/creating.shtml
    • online companies need to emphasize the four key online privacy principles:
    • Notice: Giving visitors information about what user information is collected and why.
    • Choice: Giving visitors the choice not to have this information collected.
    • Access: Giving visitors the ability to retrieve or remove their information from the web operator's records.
    • Security: Assuring visitors that the site is protected against fraud, theft, and that the information collected will not be shared unintentionally with any parties not listed in the privacy policy. (http://www.imarketing.org/advocacy/default.asp).
