ACCC and TPG are into the 3rd for the final battle

Published On 25/08/2013 | By Martine Phillips | Enforcement, Litigation

If the ACCC v TPG were a tennis match, it would be one set-all, with the ACCC taking a slight lead in the third and final set.

First set: ACCC wins against TPG (see here for blog post)

Second set: TPG pulls through in a tie-break, winning on some points but losing on others (see here for blog post)

Third set: ACCC granted special leave to appeal

The High Court has granted the ACCC special leave to appeal parts of the Full Federal Court’s decisions that some of TPG’s Unlimited ADSL2+ broadband internet service advertisements were not misleading, as well as the $50,000 penalty imposed on TPG for TPG’s initial misleading television advertisements and its failure to prominently display in its initial advertisements the single price for the advertised service.

Stay tuned for the winner…
