Online CLE Advertising Claims

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Advertising Claims Webinar. With the rise of new media, technologies and rapid technological advancement, ensuring the validity and truthfulness of advertising claims has become increasingly complex. While the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) imposes laws and regulations against false, misleading, and deceptive advertising, claims become susceptible to risk issues if not substantiated and adequately supported. Hence, advertising claims substantiation becomes more important to ensure a comprehensive, truthful and efficient promotions practice as well as to avoid the potholes of noncompliance.
