Here's an interesting one. The Sunday Business Post's Media section is reporting that RTE have put restrictions on the ad copy of a TodayFM campaign to run on RTE's stations.
TodayFM are launching a campaign to promote Ray D'Arcy's radio show and plan to spend six figures doing so across a range of media. The ad says "join D'Arcy" - except RTE are refusing to air the ad unless it just says "Ray D'Arcy" without "join" - this is because RTE has "restrictions on marketing from competing media". In order to air their ads on RTE, TodayFM has been forced to amend their ad solely to suit RTE.
Does anyone not find these rules about copy clearance unusual? For a broadcaster that's funded through a combination of advertising and licence-fee, to impose restrictions on commercial advertising seems to be especially surprising.
