As a city with the highest concentration of digital billboards in the country, Los Angeles has been an enthusiastic proponent of these new mediums.
With an average of 1.3 million digital billboards per day, the city has been instrumental in the development of these digital billboards as a way to drive sales.
With Los Angeles’ popularity, however, comes a growing concern about how these billboards will be regulated.
According to the Department of Consumer Affairs, there are at least 14 pending laws pertaining to the use of electronic billboards.
And with the state of California already taking steps to regulate these new billboards, the future of these billboards remains uncertain.
“Electronic billboards are the future, and they are a major source of revenue for Los Angeles,” said Chris McBride, a senior director of the marketing and technology division at the American Institute of Architects.
“But there’s still a lot of regulation that needs to be done before they can be implemented and marketed.”
There are several legal issues to consider when designing and developing digital billboards.
According the California Advertising Code, billboards may not display advertisements unless they’re directed at an audience that is likely to purchase goods or services.
However, this does not necessarily mean the billboard must have advertisements.
The billboard may also display advertisements only to the extent that the advertiser has a direct link to the billboard.
For example, an advertisement might only appear if the advertisier is the subject of a direct email or direct message from a potential customer.
The California Advertising Department says the following: “Advertising on electronic billboards is permitted to include direct links to websites, social media, and social media-enabled devices such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn, or other similar technologies.
However it must clearly indicate whether the advertising links are to an online store or a third-party vendor or to a third party service provider, and must include the appropriate payment information and any other information required by law.”
In other words, if you’re designing a billboard that requires a direct purchase from a third source, be sure to include your contact information in the advertising.
The Department of Commerce also requires that a billboard must be prominently displayed, and the agency that designed it must be registered with the Department before the billboard can be displayed.
This regulation applies to all types of electronic billboard, including digital billboards, and is intended to help advertisers find potential customers and increase the likelihood of a purchase.
But in order to make sure the ads appear on a digital billboard, McBride advises that you may have to comply with the rules of the land.
For instance, there’s no need to have a sign in your business listing that states that you sell digital billboards or have a license to sell them.
“You should be able to do it with a sign that says ‘digital billboard,'” McBride said.
“If you can’t do it legally, then that’s a sign you need to be aware of.”
However, there is one thing you may want to consider before you start advertising on an electronic billboard.
McBride warns that the Department may revoke your license if you don’t comply with these rules.
For starters, if the agency determines that your billboards are illegal, you could lose your business.
You could also be subject to fines.
If you can provide proof of compliance with these laws, you may be able find an attorney who can help you file a lawsuit against the city, the billboard company, or the state.
“The best thing you can do is just be aware,” McBride added.
“Keep the signs up.
If they are not up to code, make sure they’re up to date.
If the billboard doesn’t comply, make an exception.
But if the billboard does comply, just comply.”
