YouTube changes cookie use policy on Whitehouse.gov

In an apparent acknowledgment of the concerns expressed by privacy advocates, YouTube has changed its use of tracking cookies for videos embedded on the Whitehouse.gov Web site...

Cindy Cohn, the legal director with the EFF wrote about the more recent change, said that YouTube will continue to use cookies for storing user preferences, but will ignore tracking cookies on Whitehouse.gov. In an interview, Cohn welcomed the change and said she hopes that YouTube will adopt a similar cookie use policy for videos embedded on other government sites.
