Misleading advertising is prohibited by law.
It sure is, but the bar in determining that something is misleading is actually pretty high.
E.g., consumer inability to think logically is insufficient.
You can go into a courtroom and say "After reading UP TO 107 miles on a charge, I *felt like* they meant I would get over 100 mile per charge in my daily driving," but you are going to have a short time in front of the judge before s/he throws out the case.
ALL advertising is by its nature partial information that is supplied with a hefty dose of spin. It is rare that any of it reaches the level of misleading. Consider that headache pill you are thinking of taking about now. Fair chance it was advertised on TV that NO OTHER HEADACHE REMEDY IS SUPERIOR !!!!!!!
You may well think that you have the best and leading brand, but you are wrong. The advert actually only claimed non-inferiority. You may now wish you had spent 1/4rth for the cheap stuff, but no court is going to side with you and your claim of misleading advertising is going to fail.
