    I have read this before as well. I really don't think it will change much. Look at when they passed the can-spam laws. It really didn't stop anything and is hardly even enforced. Plus most of us cover our asses anyway so who cares. The FTC is busy and over worked dealing with major shit like identity theft, CC fraud and just outright scams that I don't think the will be able to enforce this crap.

    The FTC is also getting on to those free trial offers.

    Can the FTC bother you if you do business in the US but, say, the company is Canadian (or any other first world country) and/or you live outside the US?

    I don't think they can touch you if you're outside.. Unless your country turns you in; but that my assumption. I have nothing to back that up!

    If you are a US citizen and doing business with US consumers they can come after you. If your company is incorporated outside of the US they might not be able to shut you down but financially you will still be liable.
