Amazon Battles FTC Over Kids’ In-App Purchases

From the MediaPost article:

Amazon and the Federal Trade Commission are battling in court about whether the agency should be allowed to continue with its lawsuit alleging that the online retailer unfairly charged parents for their children’s in-app purchases.

Amazon says in court papers that the FTC is seeking to hold the company “to a new and unjustified” standard of unfair billing.“The requirements that the FTC seeks to impose through this lawsuit for in-app purchases are unmoored from any … congressional mandate and unchecked by any lawful rulemaking process,”Amazon argues in a motion to dismiss the FTC’s lawsuit.
