Abstract:     
This article argues that common information practices - collecting transactional information about consumers and selling it to others without the knowledge or consent of the affected consumers - violates both the FTC Act and state UDAP statutes. The article discusses the trade in consumer information, decisions under the FTC Act's prohibitions on unfair and deceptive trade practices, and cases under state UDAP statutes.
