All Case Studies should include the following in this order: 1. Case Study Title and Page Number from the text. Marketing Malt Liquor. Page 344. 2. An abstract 'summary' of the case (yes, this comes at the beginning). When developing marketing campaigns, it is very important for companies to consider the ethical and legal ramifications of that campaign. This consideration applies especially when the marketing efforts are directed towards minority groups who often times feel targeted by marketing campaigns due to past or present stereotypical discrimination that these groups often experience from organizations. Such was the challenge faced by G. Heileman Brewing Company, a Wisconsin-based brewer seeking to revamp its declining financial situation, upon the introduction of its new malt liquor. Due to the above concerns and boycotting of the product by activist groups, the company was forced to remove the new product from the shelves. Consequently, the report debates whether or not the company did in fact express insensitivity to Blacks with its "Power Master" marketing campaign which also used Black male models. 3. Philosophical questions for which you want answers. What were the company's true motives for using this type of ad? Did the Black models accept the job knowing it was discriminatory? Have other companies gotten away with this type of behavior? Are there other Blacks who hold opposing views of this campaign? What caused the government to be so involved in this case? 4. Researched answers to one of the questions presented with the case. Answer to question #2: In his article, Dan Dimit states that "In my opinion, this is the only way to work with niche markets. To appeal to a particular subgroup of buyers, you must slant your communications to be more relevant to them." This statement relates to the case above by supporting the use of customer-relevant marketing techniques in order for companies to meet marketing demands and company goals (Dimit, Dan, 2008) 5. Conclusions about the case (case specific). In conclusion, the government, as well as many activist groups, held a negative view of G. Heileman Brewing Company "Power Master" campaign due to the perceived negative stereotypes of blacks in the campaign, as well as the marketing of liquor specifically to young Black men. However, there are some companies who feel that G. Heileman Brewing Company was unfairly singled out by the public and the government. These companies argue that the government should worry more about the real problems facing the Black community rather than on issues that have no real basis. 6. Your thoughts about the case. This is where you can put in your thoughts or two-cents. Everything before this should be neutral to your feelings. I command the company for acting accordingly and ethically by removing the product from the shelves. I also feel that the company did what all companies do when focusing on niche market. I would not say the company's marketing efforts were insensitive unless it has a prior history of, or is known for, unethical behavior. However, the fact remains that when considering a marketing campaign; companies must always remember that "Big Brother" is watching. As a result, they should think carefully about whether or not the money is worth spending on that campaign in comparison to the potential headache that may ensue. 7. References Dimit, Dan. (2008). Why Should Internet Marketers Target Their Market? Retrieved on November 14, 2009 from http://www.articlesbase.com/internet-articles/why-should-internet-marketers-target-their-market-604635.html Note: I would like to see two references for each case. One reference will be the text chapter material to support the ethical aspect of the case; the other will be from another source that helps support the case. Please note that quoting information from the case study in the text (same page numbers as the case) when you make the case write-up (#2) should be annotated but doesn't count as one of the two references.

Case 6. Marketing Malt Liquor During the summer of 1991, the surgeon general of the United States and advocacy groups led by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) launched a campaign to remove G.
