U.S. Federal Trade Commission

The Center for Data Innovation has filed comments with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on issues related to competition and consumer protection in the 21st Century. There is an inherent tension between regulators and innovators.

We offer these comments on how the FTC can better find this balance.
