Coming Tuesday (January 8th) Ronnie Overgoor and me will have Hans Hillen in PitchTalk (our weekly TV-talk on Het Gesprek). Hans is chairman of the Dutch Center for Brand and Communication and member of the Senate (Dutch Parliament). We will (try to) discuss the current status on restrictions on commercial communications that were brought up in 2007 and without a doubt will also show up in 2008. Advertising targeted at children should be banned. Commercials for loans, gambling games and paid phone lines (read: sex) should be banned… And so on. Whatever happened to Freedom of Commercial Speech? We will discuss this with Hans Hillen. I hope you will watch and please deliver input before coming Tuesday!
