Viral advertising – how to regulate social advertising, and what we can learn from neuroscience


Dr Jan Trzaskowski, Law Department of Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

The research project which brings Jan to UNSW concerns the regulation of social advertising in electronic media. It focuses on the consumer’s role in advertising such as viral advertising, fan-pages, Facebook groups etc. The purpose is to discuss and challenge the traditional approach to advertising law which only regulates commercial activities. The presentation will also suggest how neuro-research and behavioral economics may play a role in the construction of advertising law.
