Defining Commercial Speech in the Context of Food Marketing

Jennifer L. Pomeranz, Sabrina Adler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The regulation of food marketing is a strategy to address obesity. Marketers engage in both commercial speech, which receives some First Amendment protection, and non-speech activities that fall outside of the First Amendment's realm; no marketing practice constitutes fully protected speech. We explore these distinctions in the public health context.
