Marketing law assignment, Business Law and Ethics

On 10 March 2011 the ACCC accepted an undertaking under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010(Cth) from Patterson Cheney Pty Ltd in relation to alleged misrepresentations made by the Victorian car retailer.

Outline in your own words the history of this matter (briefly) and discuss why the ACCC took action against Patterson Cheney and detail what particular section of the law the ACCC alleged Patterson Cheney breached (including the ACL equivalent provision).

Discuss also:

1. whether you agree that the ACCC should have taken action against Patterson Cheney and why (for example, whether the ACCC or rather a competitor of Patterson Cheney should have taken action, and what social good the ACCC was trying to achieve with this action); and 

2. whether in your opinion the way the matter was resolved (ie, by undertaking) is beneficial for the protection of Australian consumers and why.(You should also refer to other cases to illustrate your argument here).
