Simply put, the right to consumer protection argues that individuals have an entitlement to be free from harmful practices by corporations that are not representative of good faith.  Consumer protection is a way for government to support or lend advocacy to the individual against the mass force of the corporation.  For example, consumer protection calls for a period of three days when a consumer can return an item of major purchase, to prevent the feeling of being "locked in."  Another example of consumer protection is the communication that can take place in order for individuals to challenge fraudulent claims or purchases credited to their accounts.  The right to consumer protection is one where individuals can enjoy entitlements such as for protection against a strong corporate force that seeks to make profit at nearly any cost.
