The idea that activision has been cooperating with the US Federal Trade Commission over the past year is a refreshing change of pace. Activision is no longer acting as the big bad wolf when it comes to consumer fraud. They have been taking a more active role as a market participant. I don’t know about you, but I am not buying into the idea that the FTC will just leave everyone alone and let them do their thing.
If you don’t think activision has been cooperating with the FTC, then you’re probably one of the ones who is doing something wrong. The FTC regulates the entire industry as a whole, as well as the products and services that the company sells. There is no reason why Activision would want to keep the FTC on their back like the other big players in the online gaming industry. They have more power over the industry than anyone else.
What is Activision doing wrong? Well, the answer is a couple of things. First, they have been working with the FTC since last year. They just changed tactics and are now cooperating more with the FTC’s new rules and regulations. There has been no change in their behavior, they just changed tactics.
In terms of the FTC, they’ve never had much to do with online gaming. What the FTC has to do with online gaming is they set rules governing what online gaming is and how it works. The FTC has the power to set rules that are binding on the internet ecosystem, not just on big websites like EA and Activision. Online gaming is not a “free market” activity, it is a marketplace.
And that’s why it makes no sense that the FTC is trying to regulate everything online gaming is. There is no marketplace for online gaming. If we have to regulate each website to ensure they follow the rules, then we’re regulating a free market that doesn’t need regulation.
Activision, the creator of the world’s most popular online game, is very active in promoting online gaming without having to follow FTC rules. Their own press release says that they are “committed to supporting the free online gaming market.” I think it’s safe to say that if you don’t want to be regulated, you don’t have to be regulated.
In this case, its about the FTC regulations. Activision claims they are not required to follow them because they arent the market creator. They are a marketing company that markets their game with the intent of making money off it. This is an unbalanced market, as a marketplace for online gaming would require some level of regulation. At the end of the day, FTC would have to decide that the FTC should apply to all companies making games in order to follow the law.
I’m not sure if this is the right way to look at it, but I’ve been hearing about this for a while. The FTC has been trying to have online games regulated for a long time. For example, one of the first things the FTC did was regulate EA and its online games. Also, the FTC has been trying to regulate the movie industry and all its interactive media. The FTC is basically looking to make sure that the online gaming marketplace is safe, fair, and free.
This seems like it might be a good way to make sure that the online gaming marketplace is safe, fair, and free. The FTC is still trying to get games and games related products regulated, but activision has been taking a lot of flak lately for its behavior. One thing that I find interesting about these complaints is that most of them relate to the activities of a single individual (that’s why the FTC isn’t regulating them all).
Well, the thing that I find interesting is that activision, the online gambling company, is now cooperating with the federal government (FTC). This is another sign that the government is finally taking a hard look at online gaming. For years the FTC has been targeting the companies that are providing online services for gamers, but activision is one of the companies that is currently being regulated and the company has been taking a lot of flak for its past behavior.
