    Recently, legislators and enforcement agencies have made headlines signaling a renewed interest in so-called junk fees and drip pricing.

    The world is awash with concern about junk fees and drip pricing. Advertised prices which do not reflect the full obligation are nothing new, but have gained increasing prominence particularly with respect to internet sales, as consumers work through the purchase process.

    In this 60-minute program, practitioners and economist from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada discuss the legal frameworks governing the practice of drip pricing or junk fees in their respective jurisdictions, with an economic background on the concerns behind these practices in the digital age. The panel first provides an overview of the history of enforcement by various enforcement agencies across jurisdictions followed by summarizing the focus on the currently proposed rule by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which addresses hidden and misleading fees, as well as laws that have been enacted or are being considered recently by state legislatures. The FTC is still accepting public comments on the proposed rule until February 2024, and a court challenge to FTC's rulemaking authority-which would further complicate implementation-is a possibility. Nonetheless, if enacted, the FTC rule may represent a sea change in the law governing price advertising. By hearing from seasoned practitioners from several countries as well as a behavioral economic point of view, the panel aims to guide practitioners, consumers, businesses, and advertisers who will navigate a potentially new landscape on price advertising and drip pricing.

    Esteemed speakers for the panel include:
