The Council of Public Relations Firms will hold a teleconference for members on Aug. 21 to discuss the impact of the Nike v. Kasky ruling for PR pros. The ruling, which made Nike's statements in its press and other promotional materials subject to state court rulings on their literal and contextual accuracy, effectively limits "free PR speech." Tom Clarke, a senior partner with law firm Ropers Majeski Kohn & Bentley, which helps businesses ensure fact-based statements in promotional materials, will lead the discussion.
