False Advertising

Use of “Free” in Advertising

Advertising "free" products or services in order to sell other products or services requires careful attention to ensure the advertisement is not deceptive or in violation of special regulatory requirements. The Federal Trade Commission and a number of states have created specific rules for such offers. More generally, these offers are often challenged under statutes prohibiting unfair or deceptive practices.
