Roca Labs Quickly Agrees To (Temporarily) Stop Questionable Marketing Claims & Drop Gag Clause
from the that-was-quick dept
So that didn’t take long at all. Following the FTC officially taking Roca Labs to court over its deceptive marketing practices and its ridiculous gag clause barring anyone from complaining about Roca Labs, the company has already agreed to a temporary restraining order, saying that it will stop both things for now. Normally, if you have even half a case, you’d fight the temporary restraining order, but here it took basically a day for Roca Labs to say, “Okay, we’ll stop all that stuff.” That doesn’t mean the company won’t fight back going forward, but it certainly suggests that the company may realize how much trouble it’s in.

Roca Labs products – gag reflex..er gag clause.. I saw what you did there
Good for them...
I’m glad that at last a regulatory body is bringing it’s authority to bear against a despicable company that sells overpriced and largely useless crap to desperate people. False advertising indeed.
Next, anti-aging products…?
I suppose the offer to give FTC employees a discount wasn’t very convincing.
*Consumer protection results not typical.
what needs to be realised is that the FTC doesn’t now drop the case, just because of these 2 changes. it needs to continue for the simple reason that ROCA will temporarily stop it’s very questionable behavior, let things cool down then start up again!
Oh, boy. Whatever’s not going to like this at all.
