In February 2020, two Oregon-based media production companies and their owner agreed to settle FTC charges that they deceptively pitched “exclusive” advertising placements to small businesses and misled them about when the ads would be printed and distributed. The order settling the FTC’s complaint bans the defendants from such deceptive conduct and requires them to pay $100,000.
