About the book

Virtually every business is involved in advertising and marketing in one form or another. However, advertising is subject to a complex and often daunting web of law and regulation. Although in many cases there have been attempts to harmonise relevant laws, there are still significant national variations. Furthermore, in recent years digital marketing and targeting methods have changed the face of the advertising industry beyond recognition.

Updated for 2020, International Advertising Law addresses the relevant law and regulations, as well as setting out practical considerations. The book covers key areas of advertising law such as local complaints procedures and enforcement, comparative advertising, influencer campaigns, sales promotions, ambush marketing, product placement, direct marketing and online behavioural advertising. The book also addresses the particular requirements in certain industries that are subject to specific advertising regulations (e.g., gambling, alcohol, pharmaceuticals, financial products/services, food and tobacco/e-cigarettes).
