Federal Trade Commission Actions Affecting Web Sites & E-commerce
The Federal Trade Commission enforces 46 federal laws, including many laws that apply to web sites. Under the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 41-58, the Commission seeks to: (a) prevent unfair methods of competition, and unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce; (b) obtain money and other relief for injured consumers; (c) define and prevent unfair or deceptive practices; and (d) investigate the business, practices, and management of entities engaged in commerce.
The FTC has become very active and aggressive in taking enforcement action against internet companies it believes have violated federal law. Web site owners and operators should be aware of and follow the FTC's rules and enforcement actions involving internet web site owners and operators.
