Federal Trade Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen on the FTC and Advertising Substantiation

Corporations, Securities & Antitrust and Telecommunications & Electronic Media Practice Groups Teleforum February 27, 2015 01:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

One of the Federal Trade Commission’s key duties is to protect consumers from deceptive advertising. The FTC does this, in part, by ensuring that advertisers can substantiate their claims. While executing this duty, the FTC generally seeks to prevent consumer harm while maximizing the amount of useful information available to consumers. Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen believes that, in some cases over the past several years, the FTC has required a heightened level of substantiation, thereby reducing the useful information available to consumers. In a recent decision, POM Wonderful, the D.C. Circuit offered additional guidance on striking the proper balance, echoing themes that Commissioner Ohlhausen has raised in debates with her colleagues at the FTC. Commissioner Ohlhausen will discuss this and other recent cases and how the FTC should address deceptive advertising in the future.
