Academic research released last month has prompted more doubt about the effectiveness of online behavioral tracking self-regulatory programs, which lawmakers and consumer privacy advocates had already decried as subpar.
Although 70% of consumers are aware of online behavioral advertising (OBA), only 5% recognize the Digital Advertising Alliance's "Advertising Option" icon, according to a study from online security firm TRUSTe.
