We have just published the October 2022 edition of our Ads & Brands Law Digest, covering legal and regulatory developments from the last few weeks relevant to advertising, marketing and brand-owning businesses. As usual, we provide a succinct summary of each item, accompanied by a link to the full text of the relevant official source or our own report. 

In this edition, we report on CAP’s guidance on lead generation; the ASA's new gambling content rules which came into force on 1 October; the ICO fines for breaches of direct marketing rules and for predatory marketing; and we discuss the new ICO guidance on direct marketing using live calls. Finally, we also consider two significant new trademarks cases.

We hope you enjoy it.
