The Federal Trade Commission is more active than ever in its assertion of authority in the virtual world. The FTC's role is generally understood to include competition analysis, consumer protection, and policy advocacy. How are each of these functions best accomplished by the FTC in the virtual world? Are there special attributes of the internet and e-commerce that require the FTC to modify its traditional regulatory approach? Will the FTC's planned "Do Not Track" policy be an overall good, or a market inhibiter? Our experts will examine these and other questions.
