Ad Lawyer Richard Newman Quoted in Communications Daily on FTC Hearings

FTC advertising lawyer Richard B. Newman was recently quoted in Communications Daily in an article entitled “FTC Hearing Called Potential Turning Point.” The article addresses the Federal Trade Commission public hearings concerning whether broad-based changes in the economy, evolving business practices, new technologies and international developments might require adjustments to competition and consumer protection law, enforcement priorities and policy. “The tea leaves suggest an inflection point. Privacy and data use are at the forefront of the regulatory agenda, and the FTC has publicly stated that it wants more resources to accomplish its mission,” Newman stated. He added, “policies regarding technological developments, privacy and data security and the overlap between competition and consumer protection will get the most scrutiny.”
