Short Take: FTC to explore consumer protection online

The Federal Trade Commission will hold public workshops this spring to explore consumer protection for U.S. and international e-shoppers. A panel of experts will help the agency determine what laws apply to online transactions and consumer disputes, and which governments have jurisdiction. For three years the FTC held similar hearings about online privacy, which resulted in the agency recommending new laws to shield the personal information of minors online.
