The measure would change a 1988 video-privacy law that was enacted following the disclosure of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork's video rentals in a newspaper article. Netflix offers the sharing feature in 40-plus countries and territories. Bloomberg Businessweek (11/29), Adweek (11/29) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
