This term gets its meaning in the advertising space to categorize a deceptive advertisement. Deceptive advertisement is the misleading representation or omission of important information about the product.
The trade authority of a country does not regulate a deceptive advertisement if the deceptive claim by a person is also material. In other words, the claim made should be material to the consumers, rather than just being a trivial one.
Only if the deception is likely to affect the consumer’s choice of a product or conduct regarding the product, the trade authority will consider the claim to be material.
