Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and inserting the following:
‘Sec. 1. 10 MRSA c. 205-B is enacted to read:
AUTOMATIC SUBSCRIPTION RENEWAL
Amend the bill by relettering or renumbering any nonconsecutive Part letter or section number to read consecutively.
This amendment strikes and replaces the bill to reallocate the provisions of the bill to a different chapter of the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 10. This amendment also adds online software to the list of services falling under the bill's provisions and adds a definition for "online software," "extended automatic subscription renewal" and "seller." It adds a requirement that if a phone number is provided for the purposes of cancellation of the subscription, the phone number must be toll-free and must be prominently displayed in the disclosure. It adds a requirement for prior notice of renewal for extended automatic subscription renewals. It adds language exempting sellers from actions brought under the Unfair Trade Practices Act if the seller's failure to comply was the result of an error and the seller compensates the consumer.
