Internet Bureau

The Internet Bureau of the New York Attorney General’s Office is committed to protecting consumers and families from new and developing online threats. As a pioneer in this field, the Office has brought cutting edge cases and entered important settlements related to a wide range of online and technology issues, including child safety, privacy, deceptive or illegal trade practices, consumer fraud, spyware, spam, discrimination, and free speech.

The Internet Bureau accepts tips and complaints directly from the public, and mediates disputes between consumers and online sellers, service providers, and Internet companies. It also drafts legislation, issues reports on emerging technology issues, and educates the public on Internet matters.
