    Hi, am a former JETLawyer myself, and avid reader of the blog. Also practice advertising law. Please note that the BBB did not issue a list of new advertising law rules. That would be highly unusual, as the BBB does not have rulemaking authority. The AdAge article is actual just a look back at past NAD cases, and some of the “rules” or principles that have come out of those cases.
