16 CFR Part 425: "Rule Concerning the Use of Prenotification Negative Option Plans"
Prenotification Negative Option Rule Matter No. PO64202 The way that this system works at the moment actually prevents me fron trying any "free trials" even the ones that I am actually interested in simply because I do not want the hassle of having to go through the impossible processs of unsubscribing. I would much rather see the "free trial" offer be exactly that. You get to try the product or service for a specified time and then at the end of that time you have the option of explicitly stating that you wish to continue and then and only then supply your billing information. Automatic billing without explicit prior aproval should be illegal.
