From lead generation to claim substantiation, the advertising and marketing compliance legal landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. Marketers that fail to stay informed of recent consumer-protection policies, investigations and enforcement actions are exposed to liability.
During this webinar, Richard Newman will provide an overview of the regulatory landscape, and will also discuss various issues that marketers should consider in creating campaigns. Mark Lerner will then examine some of the basic intellectual property issues that arise in the context of advertising, including such topics as copyright clearance, use of competitors marks in comparative advertising, rights of publicity, keyword advertising, and user generated materials.
