We have just published the August edition of our Ads and Brand Law Digest for August 2023.  It covers legal and regulatory developments from the last few weeks relevant to advertising, marketing and brand-owning businesses. As usual, for each item we provide a succinct summary accompanied by a link to the full text of the relevant official source or our own report.

In this edition we consider the UK Online Advertising Programme, the ASA’s latest report on age-restricted targeting practices, CAP guidance on avoiding misleading imagery in ads, Trading standards guidance on marketing land and properties, a UK government consultation on product safety which will include online marketplaces and labelling, ICO guidance on what is “likely to be accessed by children”, an indefinite extension to using CE marks on products, the CMA’s investigation into unit prices and the CMA and ICO’s joint report on online choice architecture. Finally, we look at developments relating to trade marks and to domain names.

We hope you enjoy it.
