Ohio Passes the INFORM Act-What does this mean for sellers, brands and online marketplaces?

Ohio Passes the INFORM Act

Ohio takes a step to stop retail theft by signing into law HB 272. On April 6, 2022, Ohio’s governor signed into law HB 272, Ohio’s version of the Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for Consumers Act, otherwise known as the INFORM Act. Ohio is the third state to pass such a law, joining Arkansas and Colorado. While the INFORM Act won’t solve all the issues brands and consumers face on online marketplaces, it’s a step in the right direction.
