Consumer protection laws are a form of government regulation that aims to protect the rights of consumers. Consumer protection covers many topics including product liability, privacy rights, unfair business practices, fraud, misrepresentation, and other consumer/business interactions. It is also designed to ensure fair trade competition and the free flow of truthful information in the marketplace. Additionally, it can help prevent businesses that engage in fraud or specified unfair practices from gaining an advantage over competitors.
