According to the FTC,….”You don’t need a crystal ball to know that the FTC will continue to stop unfair and deceptive trade practices,” said J. Howard Beales III, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “We want consumers to know that when companies make a promise in an ad, they need to deliver.”
Wouldn’t it be ironic if the Federal Trade Commission working around the domain issue, found these to be “ads” instead and therefore guilty of deceptive advertising practices through misleading placement of the text in their “ads”? They are selling porn and these are enticements to visit the site for purchases. Aren’t these porn sites trying to sell something? Even if the site is an affiliate program, technically they may earn money for your visit.
Are you being promised missing child information or teen porn?
