Currency and Scope
This Survey was created September 2017, and covers federal statutes and regulations. Cases of interest are also provided.
This Survey omits federal criminal laws on identity theft and other privacy-related crimes, as well as laws specifically binding on the government itself as opposed to private-sector entities. Overarching consumer protection laws, such as the Federal Trade Commission Act, are also excluded. Although the FTC Act bars unfair or deceptive trade practices in general, this Survey’s focus is more detailed use- and sector-specific legislation and regulation.
