About the Book

Consumer protection laws seek to correct a misimpression that a product or service has a greater value than it actually does and, by doing so, prevent consumer injury. Understanding this objective, however, is a good deal easier than understanding the many federal and state laws designed to accomplish it.

The focus of the book is a complete and detailed perspective on Consumer Protection laws, with emphasis on developments regarding federal, state, and international law, as well as industry self-regulation. You'll find information on administrative litigation, consumer class actions, Lanham Act and Sherman Act litigation, and express, implied, and establishment claims; qualitative and quantitative consumer perception analysis; industry standard, modified industry standards, and nonstandard product testing; statistical analysis and more.

In addition to advertising law, this book endeavors to identify all the applicable laws, touching on all of the relevant disciplines, including deception and unfairness, promotion and direct marketing, private remedies, privacy and data security, industry self-regulation, and international consumer protection. Here's just a sample of the information found in this exhaustive reference:
