B-to-B Internet Auctioning Big, Segal Tells Chicago BMA

CHICAGO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet auctioning, especially in the
business-to-business arena, is the next big industry developing on the
Internet, said business marketing expert Richard A. Segal Jr. today during his

of the opportunities that exist in this arena.  FairMarket is a centralized,
open marketplace for sellers and buyers of excess semiconductors and computer

New Web Advertising System Could Threaten Individuals' Privacy, Inter@ctive 
Week Reports

GARDEN CITY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 19, 1997--An attempt to identify 
individual Internet users to Web sites they visit is the latest threat to privacy on 
the Internet, according to articles in today's online edition of Inter@ctive Week 
and the Sept. 22 print edition. According to the Inter@ctive Week reports, a 
system now being marketed to some of the world's largest Internet service 
providers and backed by leading advertising brokers would automatically reveal 
the identities of Internet users when they visit Web sites that feature advertisements 
placed on them by Imgis Inc. of Costa Mesa, Calif. Imgis computers would use 
those identities to match ads with individual consumers' tastes, combing through 
massive marketing databases. 

Though Imgis officials insist they will not keep tabs on where people go in 
cyberspace, privacy advocates worry  that the system will lead to such abuse. 
Officials at the company pledged to respond with a detailed privacy policy 
after Inter@ctive Week reported privacy advocates' concerns. Netcom On-Line 
Communication Services Inc. said it had already rejected the Imgis system on the 
grounds that it posed unacceptable privacy risks.
