SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission rescinds its stated policy that it will not ordinarily challenge claims in advertising that promote the sale of books and other publications when the advertising purports only to express the opinion of the author or to quote—i.e., mirror—the contents of the book or publication. PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Keith R.

On July 21, 1971, the Commission published its ‘‘Advertising in Books’’ enforcement policy, also known as the Mirror Image Doctrine (hereafter ‘‘MID’’). The MID enforcement policy provides: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission, as a matter of policy, ordinarily will not proceed against advertising claims which promote the sale of books and other publications: Provided, The advertising only purports to express the opinion of the author or to quote the contents of the publication; the advertising discloses the source of statements quoted or derived from the contents of the publication; and the advertising discloses the author to be the source of opinions expressed about the publication. Whether the advice being offered by the publication will achieve, in fact, the results claimed for it in the advertising will not be controlling if appropriate disclosures have been made. This policy does not apply, however, if the publication, or its advertising, is used to promote the sale of some other product as part of a commercial scheme. Advertising in Books: Enforcement Policy, 36 FR 13,414 (July 21, 1971). By its terms, the MID does not circumscribe the Commission’s inherent authority to proceed against deceptive advertising for books and other publications. Rather, it is a guide for how Commission staff ‘‘ordinarily’’ should approach such advertising. Five years after the FTC promulgated the MID, the Supreme Court decided that the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects commercial advertising from undue government regulation, albeit not to the same degree as non-commercial speech. In Virginia State Bd. of Pharmacy v. Virginia Citizens Consumer Council, Inc., 425 U.S. 748 (1976), the Court held that ‘‘speech which does ‘no more than propose a commercial transaction’’’ is commercial speech entitled to some form of First Amendment E:\FR\FM\25FEN1.SGM 25FEN1
