Tommie Copper to Pay $1.35 Million over Pain Relief Claims FTC

The Federal Trade Commission announced on December 1, 2015 that Tommie Copper, whose products have been pitched by talk show host Montel Williams, needs scientific evidence to make such claims in the future. The FTC also said Tommie Copper must pay $1.35 million to settle charges of deceptive advertising practices. The company's infomercials, the FTC said, claim that Tommie Copper truly is pain relief without a pill, with celebrity and consumer testimonials saying the garments alleviated pain caused by afflictions like multiple sclerosis and arthritis, and could provide pain relief comparable to, or better than, drugs or surgery. The FTC says those claims were false or unsubstantiated. The proposed federal court order imposes an $86.8 million judgment against Tommie Copper, but it will be partially suspended upon payment of $1.35 million by the defendants.
