Claims about the U.S. origin of a product can be powerful marketing tools, particularly in today’s economy where increasing emphasis has been placed on “buying American” to help create U.S.-based jobs and stimulate U.S. economic growth. “Made in USA” is a typical U.S. origin claim used by advertisers to highlight a product’s domestic origin. A U.S. origin claim, however, can be conveyed in many different ways, including through the use of U.S. symbols, geographic references or any other symbol or statement that suggests a connection between the product and domestic origin.
