Advertising Law

About

Advertisers have at their disposal an increasing variety of media in which to promote their products and services, including television, radio, magazines, newspapers, movies, the Internet, and direct mail. They also have ever-improving methods for collecting and utilizing customer information. But as these opportunities for advertisers to influence buyer behavior grow, so does the scrutiny from competitors, consumers, regulators, and legislators. Devising memorable and successful advertising campaigns that consistently meet claim substantiation standards and other evolving guidelines has never been more challenging.

Given the increasingly dynamic regulatory landscape, everyone involved with advertising law - including in-house counsel, outside law firms, and advertising and marketing directors - must stay abreast of the latest nationwide developments and trends to ensure they are in compliance and avoid the negative consequences of a misstep.

American Conference Institute's 13th National Advanced Corporate Counsel Forum on Advertising Law publication has been revised and updated to bring you the most current information on all of the important changes and developments in advertising law. Once again, this publication brought together a preeminent faculty of leading industry players who will provide you with their perspectives and expertise on:

  • Claim substantiation strategies and understanding the risks and remedies for unsubstantiated claims
  • Regulatory trends at the FTC, state AG offices, and NAD and how to successfully represent your company with each entity
  • Using e-mail and the Internet to advertise and market your product within the bounds of increasing regulation
  • The convergence of advertising and entertainment: product placements and advertiser sponsorship of feature films and television
  • How to safely and successfully use intellectual property of others while protecting your own intellectual property from misuse
  • Avoiding common pitfalls with sweepstakes, rebates, free offers and other promotions
  • Collecting and using customer data: best practices and standards
