You're mixing it up - making and refuting random points as suits you.

"And just US laws don't apply here"
--- Yes they do. That has been my point all along - that Canadian law does not apply to businesses operating exclusively in the U.S. Hell, laws of individual U.S. states don't even apply across their borders - thats why states are able to *not* charge sales tax for purchases made from outside their own borders.

"Some states have also had issues with auto-renew, see NY vs Ticketmaster for one example"
--- Oh, this is a good one. If you'd lay out the facts instead of blowing smoke with your veiled references, we would all know that you've cited a case with entirely different charges and outcome.

"The way a company informs the consumer and handles its policy on auto-renew does detirmine the legality of it."
--- Gosh! You got something right. In general, a company offering automatic renewals must provide:
* The specific amount that will be charged;
* Notice that the consumer must proactively cancel;
* Use of the same credit card the consumer used for the original purchase;
* The length of time of any "free trial" before billing will automatically occur;
* The length of time and services covered by any automatic renewal; and
* The method(s) by which a consumer can cancel.

Ancestry provides for ALL of the above in a manner accessible to the consumer BEFORE any contractual agreement is reached.

Prove me wrong ... with facts, not smoke.
