We're proud to announce a new legal guide! Advertising Law: A Plain Language Guide for Businesses and Nonprofits discusses key advertising laws and regulations as they apply to a wide range of industries. Created with businesses looking to comply with federal and state advertising regulations in mind, we hope this guide can help jumpstart conversations on how a business runs ads or how a business can modify ads to better comply with advertising regulations.
The guide presents an overview of the major federal laws that apply to many online businesses, as well as the California laws that control advertising. Although the laws that apply to advertising make up a large landscape, most of the laws seek to protect the consumer from confusion, and from being deceived or mislead into purchasing something that doesn’t meet their expectations.
