WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to protect your clients' commercial speech and first amendment rights while adhering to laws regulating billboard signs and emerging technologies.
State laws regulate the physical location, elements and language included in billboard advertisements. Do your clients know what practices are prohibited when it comes to sign and billboard ads?
As an attorney, you need to know the restrictions for billboards including the differences in noncommercial and commercial speech. In this one-hour webinar, George Dean will cover these important aspects of Sign and Billboard Law.
Additionally, the webinar will cover a case decided last year in which the US District Court for the Western District of Tennessee held the Tennessee Billboard Regulation and Control Act of 1972, Tenn. Code Ann. §54-21-101 et seq., unconstitutional.
Join us July 17, 2018 when George Dean will cover commercial speech and First Amendment concerns related to billboard signs. He will also cover:
