ENVIRONMENTAL ADVERTISING CLAIMS: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE

With brands in many sectors increasingly seeking to differentiate through their environmental credentials, regulators sharpening their focus on green claims, and the significant brand harm that follows accusations of greenwashing, there is a clear imperative for advertisers to ensure such claims are fully compliant. This session will consider the practical implications for global advertisers of running environmentally focused campaigns across multiple jurisdictions with differing approaches.  The panel will feature contributors from France, the U.K., Australia and the U.S., and will also consider how to approach substantiation, as well as issues with particular types of ads, such as those claiming carbon neutrality.

FTC MID-YEAR REVIEW, INCLUDING CHALLENGES TO THE FTC’S AUTHORITY AND “PENALTY OFFENSE” NOTICES

The panel will provide a mid-2022 review of the FTC, focusing on the agency’s major enforcement actions and trends involving advertisers so far this year. It will include the FTC’s focus on "dark patterns," its revival of "Penalty Offense Notices" as one of its advertising enforcement weapons, and the potential impacts of the various legal challenges to existing FTC enforcement authority. The panel will also anticipate where the FTC’s regulation of advertising is headed under its new leadership, now that the Commission is finally at full strength. The discussion will include some practical methods for advertisers to avoid FTC problems, as well as tips on how to respond should they receive an FTC inquiry.

THE LEGAL ISSUES INVOLVED IN PRODUCING ADVERTISING CONTENT

This presentation will focus on the entire content production ecosystem, from a bird’s eye view of how a production functions, to the important legal issues and potential liabilities that arise in conjunction with budgeting and bidding, talent and union obligations, insurance, and project termination and postponement (and how COVID-19 has affected these issues). The discussion will also touch on how best practices and legal considerations differ among foreign versus domestic productions, union versus non-union productions, and large-scale video shoots versus smaller photo shoots.
