A german court recently ruled that a food producer may continue to use a misleading statement about consumer health in their advertisements because as advertisement, it is not intended to be factual.

This isn't an exception, this is the norm. As a trained pub table psychologist, I'd imagine that living in such an environment leads some people to believe "it's not a lie if it makes you money".

Just one example I could think of.
