Endorsement & Image Rights:
The endorsement of a product is one of the many
ways in which an actor exploits his image rights.
An endorsement contract is a form of
personality endorsement. Personality
endorsement is when a well-recognized public
figure endorses, i.e., supports or approves of a
particular product or service. The consumer base
that the endorsement generates is attributed to
the fact that the celebrities who endorse the
products are trusted and emulated by a wide
section of the population.

False Advertising & Consumer Protection Laws:


In India, consumers can bring a case in a consumer court for
unfair trade practice which has been defined under section
2(1) (r) of The Consumer Protection Act, 1986 and includes
false claims made for promoting sale of any goods.
When we speak specifically in context of food items, according
to section 24 of the Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSA), any
person who makes false claims (orally, in writing, or visually)
about the nutritional value of the product or the efficacy of the
product without providing any scientific justification stands in
violation of the Act. The motivation for a consumer to buy a
product comes not only from the appeal of the commercial but
from the person who has done the commercial. Both the Acts
cover false claims made orally or by visual representation and
the celebrity can well fall in the purview of the legislations.
