Summary:
This article questions the legality of issues that fall into the gray-area of the law in regards to misrepresentation as exemplified by the distortion of results from a lack of publishers and researchers willing to publish negative results, ineffectual disclaimers in social media content, the fine line between what is legally permissible and legally questionable advertising, and more. This article will be focusing on the many ways that misrepresentation exists in a myriad of fields and the methods by which they are currently being addressed, or not addressed. The article will also discuss the historical background, current situation, and future implications of these methods.
