Statement by Federal Trade Commission Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras On US SAFE WEB Act Being Signed Into Law by President George W. Bush

For Release

Tags:

I am grateful to President Bush for signing the US SAFE WEB Act into law. The Act will help the Federal Trade Commission fight a range of practices that harm American consumers – including fraudulent spam, spyware, misleading health and safety advertising, privacy and security breaches, and telemarketing fraud. These practices are increasingly global in nature, and the US SAFE WEB Act will improve the FTC's ability to cooperate with its foreign counterparts to combat them.
