    Hi,

    Here's my question. I am in the USA right now and I intend to do a little bit of offline marketing by spreading flyers, putting them on cars especially. Is this a legal thing to do here, in USA? Thanks!

    I would have to think that it is legal in most places. Some towns may have there own laws about it but probably not many.

    Just do it - if it bothers anyone you'll get a warning or two before any actions taken anyway.

    (I used to own a drivein cinema, and regularly put my flyers under car wipers in the carpark of all the regular cinemas in my town. I figured that they were my exact target market - they liked movies and they owned cars. I did this for about 5 years with no complaints)

    There maybe a nuisance ordinance you might be aware of but basically it's just a fine.

    Yeah just go ahead and do it. Its not a issue. I see people doing it often and
    its not a big deal enough for them to get into trouble.

    Good Luck with it.

    Man... Thats some major prison time. 1 year per flyer. lol but seriously, I have passed out probably upwards of 10 million flyers in my time with not even as much as a warning. You will be fine.

    Yes it's very legal. You might have to deal with attitudes and altercations
