You have a great idea for an advertisement, but does it comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s guidelines and applicable laws?

Please join Fredrikson & Byron’s Start Up & Rapid Growth Enterprises (SURGE) practice group for a discussion and Q&A session on this topic.

Advertising law attorneys and industry experts will provide practical answers to questions like:

  • What is copyright infringement?
  • What is trademark infringement?
  • What is false advertising?
  • What constitutes a violation of a person’s right of publicity?
  • What do I need to do if I want a celebrity endorse my product or service?
  • Can I refer to my competitor’s product in my advertisement?
  • What is native advertising? Is it legal?
  • What do I need to do if I want to conduct a sweepstakes?

Business owners as well as agency insiders and members of the creative community are encouraged to attend.

Space is limited.
