If the consumer does not cancel the agreement before the end of the trial period, the product shipments or provision of services continue and the consumer incurs charges. The FTC’s upcoming workshop ‘‘Negative Options: Analyzing the Marketing of Offers with Negative Option Features’’ will continue the Commission’s long-standing efforts to address these types of sales offers in a manner that balances their benefits to businesses and consumers against the potential for deception and abuse. The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn more about the benefits and costs of negative option offers from consumer, business, and academic perspectives. With the explosion of Internet marketing over the past ten years, negative option offers are as much a fixture of online advertising as in any other advertising media. The workshop will bring together Internet experts, industry, and consumer groups to discuss consumer behavior online and how it affects consumers and marketers with respect to negative option offers. We expect to address the following questions: 1. What are the pros and cons of negative option marketing? • Why do businesses choose to structure offers with negative option features? • What are the benefits of negative option offers to businesses and consumers? • What are the costs of negative option offers to businesses and consumers? • How do consumers interpret or misinterpret negative option offers? Trans # 2. How do consumers behave when viewing and responding to marketing offers online? • How do consumers navigate online advertising? • How do marketers present contract terms and make disclosures in online advertising? • What does online research reveal about how to communicate effectively important offer terms to consumers? 3. How can marketers meet the clear and conspicuous standard for advertising disclosures when making negative option offers online? • Are there issues unique to negative option offers that must be addressed when making clear and conspicuous disclosures? • What challenges do marketers face in applying the clear and conspicuous standard to online negative option offers? 4. How can advertisers make negative option offers with effective disclosures that are compatible with the advertising message? • Where in online advertising should marketers make negative option disclosures? • At what point in the sales offer should marketers make such disclosures? • What types of information about the offer should marketers include in the advertising? Form and Availability of Comments The FTC requests that interested parties submit written comments addressing the above questions to foster greater understanding of the issues. In particular, the FTC requests that commentators submit relevant studies, surveys, research, and empirical data. The comment period will remain open after the workshop so that interested parties can provide input regarding the Acquiring discussions held at the workshop. Written comments must be received on or before February 26, 2007, and may be filed in either paper or electronic form. All comments should be filed as prescribed in the ADDRESSES section above. By direction of the Commission. Donald S. Clark, Secretary. [FR Doc.
