As the Digital Health Contracts Law Blog recently advised you, the FTC has just filed a complaint against a software company over its “Annual Paid Monthly” subscription contract. The FTC has separately also sought the expansion of its “Negative Option Rule” to amend the provisions to specifically apply to subscriptions by adding a “Click to […]

The FTC has just signaled to all consumer-facing companies relying on a subscription model that their subscription contracting practices are under scrutiny, so digital health companies need to know and understand the FTC’s claims and concerns about some subscription contracts.  In particular, the FTC has filed suit against Adobe over its Annual Paid Monthly subscription […]

The Prinz Law Office is pleased to announce the launch of a new subscription plan, which is intended to simplify the process of working with a lawyer for companies as well as individuals.  The firm’s subscription plans have been been designed to uniquely enable clients to hire and communicate with counsel without the fear or […]
