Update On Tobacco Company Lawsuit Regarding Use of Promotional ProductsNovember 23rd, 2009
We’ve chronicled the recent law passed by President Obama to ban the use of tobacco company logos on promotional products. Well, we also touched on the tobacco companies’ lawsuit to remove this particular element of the aforementioned ban.
