Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance Releases International Advertising Law Book

New York – The Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance (“GALA”) announced today that it has just released Advertising Law: A Global Legal Perspective.  The book provides an overview of the laws governing advertising and marketing in 56 countries, from Argentina to Zimbabwe.  The book – which is more than 800 pages long – is in two volumes. 
“We are thrilled to publish the definitive guide to advertising law around the world,” said Jeffrey A. Greenbaum, Managing Partner of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz in New York and GALA’s Chairman. “We hope that this book becomes an invaluable resource to marketers as they market to consumers globally.”
Organized by country, each chapter describes how advertising is regulated in that country as well as what self-regulatory systems are in place.  Each chapter also provides detailed information about other key advertising and marketing issues, including price advertising, prohibited practices, special clearance concerns, branded content, social media, and publicity rights.
“There are two huge legal challenges when advising clients on global advertising campaigns – the wide range of applicable law and the marked lack of international harmonization,” said Brinsley Dresden, Partner of Lewis Silkin LLP in London and GALA’s Global Treasurer & Secretary.  “This book will help brands, agencies, and their legal advisors to navigate the challenges.”
The report is available for purchase on and is also available directly from the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance.
