Episode 5: Key Takeaways for Companies Participating in the Political Process After a Historic Election Year

The time between the 2020 election and the inauguration of President Biden in January 2021 was one of the most tumultuous political periods in recent history. Even before the election, 2020 was already a historic election year in terms of the magnitude and intensity of political engagement, as well as the sheer amount of political advertising and campaign messaging across all media channels, including social media and text messaging. For companies that usually try to maintain a neutral political stance, participation in the political process without getting into legal trouble has become a complex and difficult problem.

In this episode of Perfect Balance: An Advertising Law Podcast, host Po Yi invites Manatt government and regulatory partner Randall W. Keen and TCPA compliance and class action defense counsel A. Paul Heeringa to the podcast for a discussion of legal issues related to the participation of companies in the political process, whether through conducting political advertising, making political contributions, or furnishing (or in some cases terminating) services to certain individuals or companies involved in objectionable behavior.
