ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the reaction of advertising industry groups on the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court regarding gambling advertising in the U.S. in 1999. According to advertising industry groups, the decision of the Supreme Court on gambling advertising would mean the end to further city, state and federal attempts to regulate alcoholic beverage and tobacco advertisements. The unanimous vote in the Greater New Orleans Broadcasters Association case clearly showed the high court is going to demand the same sort of scrutiny of advertising curbs for so-called sin products as for any other products. In a memo to its members, the American Association of Advertising Agencies said the U.S. Federal Communications Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice will meet to determine whether the decision allows gambling advertising ranging from poker to bingo or in all 50 states.
