CHOOSECO POLICY STATEMENT ON PRODUCT PLACEMENT WITHIN CHILDREN’S MEDIA
CHOOSECO LLC does not allow product placement advertising within the body of content of children’s media. By body of content of media we mean the storyline or factual or game text of any book, TV show, board game, electronic game, workbook or other entertainment or educational product for children. We consider such commercial product placement advertising inside these media contrary to the best interests of children and society. We further believe that this position is shared by the majority of people involved in producing children’s entertainment.
CHOOSECO thus apologizes to its audience for inadvertently allowing a product placement in a DVD based upon a recently reissued CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE title. There are non-invasive ways to promote and advertise products while still supporting content. We embrace and accept these on a case-by-case basis.
We invite your support in keeping the content of children’s entertainment and education free of product placement advertising.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
