FTC: All Advertisers Should Heed Lessons From “Operation Full Disclosure”

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

On the heels of FTC’s “Operation Full Disclosure,” which resulted in 60 warning letters, commission officials advise all advertisers to pay close attention to their disclosures and ensure they are clear and conspicuous. The initiative included review of 1,000 national television and print ads, and the agency says it will continue to monitor the advertising landscape for inadequate disclosure use.
