VeriSign Marketing Practices Investigated by FTC

VeriSign is currently under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) after the company was named in a slew of lawsuits for deceptive marketing. Suits state that VeriSign used deceptive marketing to persuade customers of their competitors to transfer domains to their company. The FTC is specifically investigating whether VeriSign obtained competitors customer information illegally. This investigation comes on the heels of a ruling in June that ordered VeriSign to stop mailing “domain expiration notices” to its competitors customers.
