On January 23, 2008, pursuant to section 6(f) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 38 Stat. 721, 15 U.S.C. 46(f), and § 2.34 of the Commission Rules of Practice, 16 CFR 2.34, the Commission gave notice that the above-captioned consent agreement containing a consent order to cease and desist, having been filed with and accepted, subject to final approval, by the Commission, had been placed on the public record for a period of thirty (30) days, and published a Notice to that effect in the Federal Register. See 73 Fed. Reg. 5,846 (Jan. 31, 2008). The Notice also designated February 22, 2008, as the deadline for filing public comments. A number of prospective commenters have now requested an extension of the public comment period, in order to ensure that they will be able to provide the Commission with the best information available. In light of the number and importance of the issues on which it has requested comment, the Commission has determined to extend the filing deadline until April 24, 2008.
