“Dark Patterns” keep popping up in all corners of the privacy space. While deceptive acts and practices have long been prohibited by the FTC Act, the amorphous concept of “dark patterns” has been a recent focus of the FTC, consumer advocate organizations and state legislators. But what are “dark patterns” and when does user interface design cross over from “optimized” to “manipulative” or “deceptive”? This panel will explore the existing legal frameworks as well as legislative proposals that seek to define and regulate dark patterns, highlight recent enforcement actions and consumer complaints, and help your business stay on the right side of the emerging law.
