Re: Yes, that PC cleanup app you saw on TV at 3 a.m...

I agree that it's crap -
but according to marketing, it's probably legal. If they pay for the spot, someone will place the ad somewhere. You notice that it's at real off hours as drive time and prime time are expensive.

I complained as our business accepted ads from that damn name a star registry. Those ads are phony, but not illegal as it's their OWN registry. They never said the names would be recognized by any official naming registry like the IAU.

You're right ! Unfortunately, unless parties launch a suit or something or the Network(s) decide to pull the ads - they will stay where they are.

As always, buyer beware - just because it's on CNN doesn't mean it's not a hook.

as a rule of thumb.................never impulse buy anything on t.v.
do all your homework..........and research....it'll pay off big time

one other thing may occur if your buying from the expert t.v. guy
or girl.......happens to the tune of billions$ per year.....w/c cards
