At present, advertisers can get away with far more online than through broadcast channels, although this is in the process of being redressed in Asia, North America and Europe. Internationally, industry and government regulators are being tested to adjudicate the wave of new media. In France and Norway, for example, bans have been imposed on SMS messages, but they are allowed in China, the United States and the UK. Laws have been introduced in China to regulate e-messaging, while operator licence sales for telecommunications have been more tightly regulated in France, Italy and the UK.

For instance, back in 1999, the Apple Corporation famously opted to use the features of their new iMac as the driver for their promotional material. Ad agencies were charged with using the look of the iMac as a visual hook and selling proposition, so that media campaigns around the world settled on a similar ‘product as star’ tactic. Apple’s promotional success was mostly down to managing their communications strategy from source – an approach previously used with success by Coca-Cola, Gap and Benetton.

Then there were the lemmings, leaping off the cliff shouting “content, content, it’s all about branded content”’ (Bannister, 2005). The latter continued to push the old media formats, in the hope that famous advertising might be confused with value for money. Some advertising groups in the UK set up their own ‘below the line’ departments. For instance, Bartle Bogle Hegarty set up Limbo; Lowe Howard Spink set up Lowe Direct; Ogilvy & Mather set up Ogilvy Direct; Saatchi & Saatchi set up Saatchi Direct; Publicis developed Publicis Dialog.
