In my opinion, filing and pre-review of broadcast advertisements by NASD
will be a very important tool in affirmatively preventing
misrepresentations being made in the course of broadcast ads. I believe
this to be a significant problem, and any rules, such as this one, that
are designed to address the problem, are highly needed and welcomed.
Pre-review of advertisements is already being done, extensively, by
several state bar associations and has worked well, in those
jurisdictions, to reduce abuse of attorney advertising. I believe it
can serve the same function within the securities industry.
