    As was indicated in the show, Microsoft had announced last week that they would have the “do not track” feature enabled by default in IE10.  However, the specification has just changed by the working group:  
     
    “(1) Today we reaffirmed the group consensus that a user agent MUST NOT set a default of DNT:1 or DNT:0, unless the act of selecting that user agent is itself a choice that expresses the user’s preference for privacy. In all cases, a DNT signal MUST be an expression of a user’s preference. []…]
    Implication A: Microsoft IE, as a general purpose user agent, will not be able to claim compliance with DNT once we have a published W3C Recommendation. As a practical matter they can continue their current default settings, since DNT is a voluntary standard in the first place. But if they claim to comply with the W3C Recommendation and do not, that is a matter the FTC (and others) can enforce.”
     
    So it seems that Microsoft really doesn’t have a choice but to disable this feature now.  Otherwise, advertisers could elect to simply ignore IE10′s setting knowing that it is enabled by default.
