Patricia C. Epperson, Editor. Includes: Members of the Commission; Table of Cases; Findings, Opinions, and Orders; Response to Petitions to Quash; Table of Commodities; and Index. Item 534. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) prevents business practices that are anticompetitive or deceptive or unfair to consumers, enhances informed consumer choice and public understanding of the competitive process, and accomplishes this without unduly burdening legitimate business activity. The FTC is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers’ interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.

This publication gives information for each case in which a company is accused of engaging in unfair, or deceptive, business practices.  The details of the accusations, the company’s response, and the FTC’s legal decisions are given, covering the dates of FTC findings, opinions and orders between January 1, 1999 and June 30, 1999.
