"Surf At Your Own Risk" (October 30, 2000)

Editor's Note

"Surf at your own risk" (October 30, 2000)

In our issue of Oct. 30, 2000, we ran an article called "Surf at your own risk" (page 143). It described how a Boston-based company, Pharmatrak Inc., surreptitiously tracked computer users who visited the Web sites of 11 pharmaceutical companies. Unfortunately, the article used information and wording without attribution from a similar story that ran earlier in The Washington Post. We deeply regret this incident. We apologize to our readers and to The Washington Post for this breach of journalistic standards.
