Gateway, Juno change disclosure practices

Author: JT Smith

Bloomberg (via CNET) reports: "Gateway, a direct seller of personal computers, agreed to
settle charges it misled consumers with promises of free Internet service, the
Federal Trade Commission said Tuesday.

Juno Online Services reached a similar agreement with the FTC. The Internet service
provider settled charges that it wrongly told consumers who participated in a free trial
offer for premium Internet service they would be able to cancel at any time without a
charge."
