South Africa: Ambush marketing: national preventative legislation

Corporations pay millions to exclusively sponsor events such as the FIFA 2010 World Cup South Africa, however ambush marketing by non-sponsors keen to associate themselves with popular events threatens that revenue.

The full version of this article appears in the September edition of World Sports Law Report.
