But wait, there are more privacy hearing scheduled! This one with the Consumer Protection, Product Safety and Insurance Subcommittee.

A Senate Commerce subcommittee has scheduled a 10am hearing on mobile privacy for May 19, titled "Consumer Privacy and Protection in the Mobile Marketplace."

Among those invited to testify are Bret Taylor, chief technology officer at Facebook, Catherine Novelli, vice president of worldwide government affairs at Apple, and Alan Davidson, director of public policy at Google.

There's no word yet on who has accepted this invitation.
