Event Description

Federal Trade Commission Chair Lina M. Khan announced that an open meeting of the Commission will be held virtually on Thursday, May 23, 2024. The open meeting will commence at 1 pm ET and will begin with time for members of the public to address the Commission.

The following items will be on the tentative agenda for the May 23 Commission meeting:

Business Before the Commission:

Presentation on Final Rule on Government and Businesses Impersonation: 

Staff from the Bureau of Consumer Protection’s Division of Marketing Practices will provide a presentation on the Commission’s Final Rule Concerning Government and Business Impersonation. The Rule, which went into effect last month, gives the agency stronger tools to combat scammers who impersonate businesses or government agencies, enabling the FTC to directly file federal court cases aimed at forcing scammers to return the money they made from government or business impersonation scams and seek civil penalties for their conduct.

Staff Presentation on Roll-Up RFI: 

Staff from the Bureau of Competition will provide a presentation on the Commission’s Request for Information for public comment on corporate consolidation through serial acquisitions and roll-up strategies. The RFI seeks information from the general public on serial acquisitions across all sectors and industries in the U.S. economy, particularly those acquisitions that do not require review by antitrust agencies, and their effects on competition, consumers, workers, suppliers, and other stakeholders.

Voice Cloning Challenge Winners Presentation: 

Representatives from the Division of Marketing Practices and the Office of Technology will provide a presentation on the Voice Cloning Challenge winners and their ideas for protecting consumers from AI-enabled voice cloning harms, such as fraud, and the broader misuse of biometric data and creative content.

At the start of the meeting, Chair Khan will offer brief remarks and will then invite members of the public to share feedback on the Commission’s work generally and bring relevant matters to the Commission’s attention.
