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:
- That a false or misleading statement of fact exists
- That the false statement was used in a commercial advertisement
- That the advertisement deceives or is likely to deceive and
- 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.
