Granting of Requests for Early Termination of the Waiting Period Under the Premerger Notification Rules, 43017-43020 [2017-19426]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 176 / Wednesday, September 13, 2017 / Notices I respectfully disagree. Lenovo failed to disclose that VisualDiscovery would act as a man-in-the-middle. However, Lenovo did disclose that the software would introduce advertising into consumers’ web browsing, although its disclosure could have been better. Furthermore, to the extent ordinary consumers expect anything from advertising software, they likely expect it to affect their web browsing and to be intrusive, as the popularity of ad blocking technology shows. In addition, unlike the man-in-the-middle technique, VisualDiscovery’s ad placement and web browsing effects did not introduce gross hazards obviously outside of consumers’ ordinary expectations for advertising software. In short, although VisualDiscovery’s ad placement and effect on web browsing may have been irritating to many, those features did not make VisualDiscovery unfit for its intended use. Therefore, I do not find Lenovo’s silence about those features to be a deceptive omission. Fortunately, the outcome in this case does not depend on resolving our disagreement on the application of deceptive omission to advertising software. My goal in writing separately is to maintain the clear distinction set forth in International Harvester between deceptive failures to disclose and unfair omissions.13 When evaluating the legality of a party’s silence, we must be careful not to circumvent unfairness’s higher evidentiary burden by simply restyling an unfair omission as a deceptive omission. Statement of Commissioner Terrell McSweeny in the Matter of Lenovo, Inc. I support the Commission’s complaint against Lenovo, but I am troubled by conduct in this case that the Commission fails to challenge. According to the complaint, Lenovo, Inc. preinstalled software on computers that was designed to serve advertisements to consumers while they were browsing Web sites. The software, called VisualDiscovery, acted as a ‘‘man-in-the-middle’’ between the consumers and all of the Web sites with which they communicated. It allegedly actively contravened the security posture of consumers’ computers, leaving them vulnerable both to attack from cyber-criminals and to transmitting personal information across the web to Superfish, Inc. servers. These unfair practices violate the Federal Trade Commission Act and are appropriately challenged by the FTC in Counts II and III of the complaint. But Lenovo’s unlawful conduct went beyond the data security failings alleged in the complaint. The complaint also describes how the software it preinstalled on computers would: (1) Inject pop-up ads every time consumers visited a shopping Web site; and (2) disrupt web browsing by reducing download speeds by almost 25 percent and upload speeds by 125 percent. These facts were not disclosed to consumers and these omissions were deceptive. Moreover, the FTC alleges that the VisualDiscovery software was designed to be difficult to discover. Consumers were initially made aware of the existence of the VisualDiscovery software via a pop-up window the first time they visited an ecommerce site. But clicking to close that window opted consumers into the program. The initial pop-up window failed to disclose that VisualDiscovery would follow the consumers from shopping site to shopping site; slow the performance and functionality of the Web sites they visited; and compromise their security and privacy throughout each online browsing session. Under Section 5 of the FTC Act, the failure to disclose information necessary to prevent the creation of a false impression is a deceptive practice.1 A seller’s silence may make an implied representation ‘‘based on ordinary consumer expectations as to the irreducible minimum performance standards of a particular class of good.’’ 2 In this case, Lenovo deceptively omitted that VisualDiscovery would alter the very internet experience for which most consumers buy a computer. I believe that if consumers were fully aware of what VisualDiscovery was, how it compromised their system, and 43017 how they could have opted out, most would have decided to keep VisualDiscovery inactive. This is an exceptionally strong case and clearly articulates how the Commission uses its unfairness tools to protect the data security and privacy of consumers. I support Count I, but believe the FTC should have included additional deceptive conduct alleged in the complaint within the count. The FTC should not turn a blind eye to deceptive disclosures and opt-ins, particularly when consumers’ privacy and security are at stake.

FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION


Granting of Requests for Early Termination of the Waiting Period 
Under the Premerger Notification Rules

    Section 7A of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18a, as added by Title II 
of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, requires 
persons contemplating certain mergers or acquisitions to give the 
Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney General advance 
notice and to wait designated periods before consummation of such 
plans. Section 7A(b)(2) of the Act permits the agencies, in individual 
cases, to terminate this waiting period prior to its expiration and 
requires that notice of this action be published in the Federal 
Register.
    The following transactions were granted early termination--on the 
dates indicated--of the waiting period provided by law and the 
premerger notification rules. The listing for each transaction includes 
the transaction number and the parties to the transaction. The grants 
were made by the Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney 
General for the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. 
Neither agency intends to take any action with respect to these 
proposed acquisitions during the applicable waiting period.
