Sweepstakes, Contests, & Giveaways: Keeping Your Client’s Promotion Legal

Lori Krafte, Wood Herron & Evans L.L.P.

Join us on May 11, 2021 for our next webinar, led by Lori Krafte of Wood, Herron & Evans L.L.P. 

We’ve long seen promotions on the back of cereal boxes and other consumer packaged goods, but now there is hardly a type of business where we don’t see them, including B2B. 

But as great as they are for marketing, they can create real exposure if you aren’t careful.  When is your client’s promotion actually an illegal lottery?  When is it creating unacceptable infringement or false advertising risks?  What is required to comply with the law?  How do social media platforms affect the structure and rules of the promotion? 

We’ll go over the compliance basics and discuss the common pitfalls of sweepstakes, contests, and giveaways. We anticipate 1.0 hour of CLE credit in Ohio.  

Register here by May 7th at 5:00 PM.
