NCLC, along with the National Consumers League and several other organizations, submitted comments in response to the Federal Trade Commission’s Negative Option Rule. The organizations strongly supported the rule’s provisions to mitigate harms from unfair and deceptive practices regarding free trials and negative option programs. Consumer commentators recommended enhancements to the proposed rule to ensure consumers have notice when free trials convert to paid subscriptions and each time they will be charged for a recurring negative option plan.
