What is required to file a false advertising claim?

In the event of false advertising, most businesses are protected under the Lanham Act. Although more popularly recognized as a trademark statute, the Lanham Act is also fundamental in defending a company against false or misleading advertising. A business can file a Lanham Act claim, provided that they meet certain criteria.

Each of these four elements must be clearly established when filing a claim:

  1. That a false or misleading statement of fact exists
  2. That the false statement was used in a commercial advertisement
  3. That the advertisement deceives or is likely to deceive and
  4. That the advertisement is causing or will cause competitive injury to the plaintiff

If successful, you may be able to recover numerous benefits on behalf of your company. An injunction may be placed against the accused company and damages are often awarded to the injured party. Under the Lanham Act, businesses do not have to put up with false advertising.
