Jen and Berry’s is a nationally recognized ice cream manufacturer. Their main competition is Eddie’s, a regionally recognized brand that is becoming more popular. In order to keep their place at the top of the ice cream market, Jen and Berry’s launches a marketing campaign claiming that they use only organic ingredients in their ice cream and that their ice cream is fresher, creamier and better tasting than Eddie’s ice cream. In fact, Jen and Berry’s does not use organic ingredients in its ice cream. As a result of the campaign, Eddie’s sales fall off and he eventually goes out of business. In an action against Jen and Berry’s for misrepresentation, Eddie’s will:
Choice 1 Win, because Jen and Berry’s claim about using organic ingredients was false
Choice 2 Lose, because Jen and Berry’s made no disparaging remarks about Eddie’s products
Choice 3 Win, because the claim that Jen and Berry’s ice cream is fresher, creamier and better tasting than Eddie’s ice cream is opinion and not fact
Choice 4 Lose, because Jen and Berry’s is the leading brand of ice cream on the market
