dc.description.abstract This paper begins with a brief overview of the psychology of rumor and a discussion of the impact of Internet technology on the dissemination of rumors. Part II examines the three consumer rumors presented above as case studies illustrating the problem of Internet hoaxes and attempts by governmental and private actors to halt the circulation of false information about a product or company. Part III discusses whether the traditional enforcement tools used by the FDA and FTC are adequate and appropriate to address consumer rumors, as well as reviewing the options available to private companies adversely impacted by such a rumor. en
