Transcript of "Hot Topics In Marketing Compliance And Enforcement Peter Marinello"

  1. 1. The Electronic Retailing Self-Regulation Program(“ERSP”)Peter Marinello, ERSP Director<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. ERSP Policy and Procedures <br />Direct Response Advertising<br />60 Calendar Days<br />Primary and Core Claims <br />Anonymous Challenges<br />Determination as to whether substantiation appears reasonable on its face<br />
  4. 4. Self-Regulatory Goals <br />Improve/restore consumer confidence in electronic retailing.<br />Provide a quick and efficient mechanism for reviewing “high profile” advertising campaigns<br />Effectuating the discontinuance of DRTV and other advertising and marketing materials that contain egregious, unsupported efficacy and/or performance claims.<br />Demonstrate to the FTC, the direct response industry’s commitment to strong self-regulation and compliance with legal requirements.<br />
  5. 5. Over the past few years, ERSP has examined many types of claim substantiation:<br />“The World’s Fastest Weight-Loss Solution”<br />- Testimonials/Endorsements<br />- Before and After Depictions<br />- Weight Loss<br />- Health and Safety<br />- Establishment Claims<br />- Disclosures<br />- New Media<br />- Puffery<br />- Demonstrations<br />““Lose 287% the weight compared to placebo”<br />“Within 7 days my acne completelydisappeared”<br />The #1 Doctor Recommended Joint Supplement”<br />‘The Clinically Proven Weight Loss Supplement!”<br />
  6. 6. Objective claims for products or services represent explicitly or by implication that the advertiser has a reasonable basis supporting these claims.<br />The Commission&apos;s determination of what constitutes a reasonable basis depends, as it does in an unfairness analysis, on a number of factors relevant to the benefits and costs of substantiating a particular claim. These factors include: the type of claim, the product, the consequences of a false claim, the benefits of a truthful claim, the cost of developing substantiation for the claim, and the amount of substantiation experts in the field believe is reasonable.<br />
