NetChoice supports the FTC bringing enforcement actions when a business violates Section 5 and engages in unfair or deceptive trade practices in a way that harms consumers. However, the action against Nomi Technologies fails to show a violation of the FTC Act, could disincentivize businesses from giving consumers greater control over their privacy, and runs counter to the FTC’s prosecutorial discretion. We further outline our concerns in the attached comments.
