RADIO MERCHANDISING STANDARD RULES TEMPLATE
NOTE: These rules are provided as a suggestion, and should serve as a helpful tool in drafting appropriate rules copy for your radio merchandising sweepstakes/program. Customization will be necessary to reflect your program specifics. Please remember that use of these "template" rules does not replace the need for legal review of all promotional materials produced locally. All bottlers should have all program elements, including rules copy, reviewed prior to production with their own legal staff to assure compliance with all applicable law. In addition, all participating radio stations should conduct their own internal review of any rules copy applicable to any programs conducted on-air or otherwise promoted by the radio station.
