: Yes. And it would be easier without McDonald's (an the like) deliberatly targetting children in their adverts and exploiting their

: The judge effectively ruled that McDonald's adverst which suggested that were missleading. I agree that they were stupid to go to court, they could not win because they were guilty. Regardless of the verdict, the evidence supports all the claims.
