California Code, Business and Professions Code - BPC § 17539

The Legislature finds that there is a compelling need for more complete disclosure of rules and operation of contests in which money or other valuable consideration may be solicited;  that current methods of disclosure are inadequate and create misunderstandings as to the true requirements for participation and winning of prizes offered;  that certain problems which have arisen are peculiar to contests;  that the provisions of Sections 17539.1 through 17539.3 are necessary to the public welfare and that the terms hereof shall be interpreted so as to provide maximum disclosure to and fair treatment of persons who may or do enter such contests.
