The Federal Trade Commission announced the opening dates of its Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century, a series of public hearings that will discuss whether broad-based changes in the economy, evolving business practices, new technologies or international developments might require adjustments to competition and consumer protection law, enforcement priorities and policy. The FTC and Georgetown University Law Center will co-sponsor two full-day sessions of hearings on September 13 and 14, 2018, to be held at the Georgetown University Law Center facility.
Panelists at the hearings will consider, among other topics, the regulation of consumer data and whether the U.S. economy has become more concentrated and less competitive. The FTC invites public comment on any of the issues.
More information is available on the FTC’s website.
