Advertising Law in Europe and North America, Second Edition

Globalization means increasing integration of national markets. Political developments, such as the single European currency, and technological developments, such as the Internet, are making borders less and less relevant to marketers who are becoming as interested in selling to customers outside their own countries as within.

While the horizon of marketers has broadened, the laws governing marketing and advertising remain largely local. The purpose of Advertising Law in Europe and North America is to alert marketers to differences in those laws and to help them plan their marketing campaigns accordingly.

This book meets the practical needs of advertisers engaged in multi-national marketing. It seeks to provide lawyers and laypersons alike with orientation in the laws governing advertising in 20 jurisdictions:

  • the Member States of the European Union (EU)
  • the EU itself
  • Switzerland
  • Norway
  • the Member States of the North American Free Trade Area (Canada, Mexico, and the United States)

    Each of the country chapters is written by an expert practitioner from that jurisdiction.
