BREAKOUT 2D: EVERYTHING ADVERTISERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DIGITAL ACCESSIBILITY AND THE LAW

With more than 20% of the population self-identifying as having a disability, advertisers need to understand digital accessibility now more than ever. Advertisers increasingly drive engagement online across social, web, email, YouTube, and other digital experiences. Corporations are adopting DEI and ESG initiatives, over 5,000 lawsuits have been filed in the last two years, and over 97% of top websites continue to have disability barriers. In this session, we’ll review the state of litigation and regulation, how to properly develop inclusiveness and representation, and how corporations are developing corporate policy to ensure compatibility.

BREAKOUTS III

BREAKOUT 3A: GET CERTIFIED: POLICY, PROCESS, AND NEXT STEPS FOR CERTIFYING ADDRESSABLE MEDIA IDENTIFIERS

The next step in the evolution of the DAA Principles has arrived, incorporating a new privacy framework for Addressable Media Identifiers (AMIs), such as tokens, cookies, and other emerging technologies that will drive the future of advertising. A two-year initiative led in part by ANA culminated in the creation of the policy framework that governs the use of AMIs, and the DAA has incorporated that framework into its broader self-regulatory program to ensure consistency and ease-of-implementation for advertisers, agencies, media owners, and other stakeholders. DAA and business leaders will share more about the certification process it recently launched to ensure responsible deployment of such identifiers in the marketplace and next steps in building consumer trust while safeguarding the core functionality of our advertising ecosystem.

We’ll also examine some of the new developments in this area, as forward-thinking brands start incorporating new technologies like crypto and NFTs.

VENDOR RISK: ESSENTIAL IN THE CHANGING VENDOR COMPLIANCE LANDSCAPE

Many businesses may be surprised to hear about the consequences of failing to conduct vendor due diligence under the amended CCPA, as well as other state laws. They also may be interested to learn that their counterparty contracts must give them audit rights and that they need to conduct risk assessments. Under the GDPR, all businesses are responsible for their vendors, so it wasn’t a surprise when Vodafone was fined €8.15 million (U.S. $9.72 million) for failing to monitor its vendors' aggressive telemarketing tactics. Don’t be surprised when this happens in the U.S.

The vendor compliance landscape is changing globally. We will discuss what you need to know and what you need to do to mitigate vendor risk and ensure vendor privacy compliance.

BREAKOUT 6A: PROMOTING ESG PERFORMANCE: RISKS AND REWARDS

As Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) becomes an increasingly important focus of companies around the globe, brands are naturally seeking ways to highlight their efforts to consumers. With surveys showing that over 75% of consumers will stop buying from companies that treat the environment, employees, or the community in which they operate poorly, these efforts are well-placed. Employees, shareholders, and investors are also focused on companies’ commitment to ESG concerns. However, marketing and advertising of ESG claims is not without risk. Landmines for legal issues abound, particularly as diverse departments focus on ESG - from investor relations to product development and marketing. In this session, our team will focus on the risks companies face as they embark on communications regarding their ESG efforts, with a particular focus on the social and governance aspects of the ESG ecosystem. Attendees will receive practical guidance and tips to help mitigate these risks.

BREAKOUT 6B: SURVEYS IN FALSE ADVERTISING CASES

This session will review the types of surveys that are most common in false advertising cases: likelihood of confusion surveys, materiality surveys, and conjoint surveys. We will explain how these techniques are used in the context of a typical product mislabeling or deceptive advertising case, where plaintiffs claim that consumers overpaid for a product because its attributes are different than those advertised. We will also describe how these same survey techniques are used to provide evidence in Lanham Act matters. Whether your company or client is involved in a greenwashing, truth-in-advertising, or comparative advertising dispute, this session will arm you with an understanding of economic evidence in these matters.

FIRST CHAIR LITIGATOR'S PERSPECTIVE: WHAT ADVERTISING, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, AND PRIVACY LITIGATIONS WILL LOOK LIKE IN THE ERA OF WEB3 AND THE METAVERSE

Blockchain technology holds the promise to advance both brands and content creators into an era of digital rights ownership and change the way we capitalize on and consume content, use data, and interact with customers.  With predictions that it will be an $8 trillion market opportunity by 2030, the metaverse – powered by NFTs and other technology advancements blockchain has to offer – will change the way the brands advertise, enforce their rights, litigate, and mitigate legal risks. The panel will combine first-chair litigator overview from Anna Naydonov on how blockchain technologies are bound to affect all things litigation (from service of process to jurisdiction to managing IP, marketing, and privacy risks) with unique in-house perspective from Kathryn Farrara, who has helped guide one of the world’s largest advertisers through some of the most innovative metaverse activations.
