The Office of Fair Trading (OFT), the UK regulator, this week announced it will be doing two market studies "which are aimed at clarifying and updating the understanding of consumer harm that arises from potentially misleading advertising and pricing." One of the two studies focusses on behavioral targeting, the other one on online pricing practices.... read more
