Working To Prevent Advertising Violations And Complaints

Numerous state, federal and international laws demand truth in advertising, and violations can result in significant consequences. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) investigates complaints against advertisers accused of making false statements and will take swift action if a violation is identified.

At the law firm of Eric F. Greenberg, P.C., our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in a wide variety of alleged advertising violations and complaints.

Evaluation And Review Of Advertising

There have been numerous instances where a review of the advertisement prior to its publication could have prevented the release of false or misleading information. We frequently evaluate advertisements for compliance with FTC guidelines and other laws. We can also review product labeling to ensure consistency between labeling information and the advertisement. In addition, we take the time to explain the regulations that inform our feedback so that you are aware of the requirements for future reference.

WHAT ONE COURT CASE CAN TEACH

What One Court Case Can Teach

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

To help understand the recent scourge of private lawsuits brought against food packagers over the information on their product labels, let’s dive deeply into the recent decision in Mazella v. The Coca-Cola Company, in which consumers in New York State sued Coke claiming its bottled Gold Peak iced tea was misleadingly labeled as being “slightly sweet.” Spoiler alert: The case was dismissed—that is, thrown out—by the judge. I’ll discuss the judge’s lengthy Opinion and Order from July 21. (I can send you a copy if you ask for it at my email address below.)
