Moody’s Ups Industry Outlook To “Stable”; Merck Settles Legacy Schering-Plough Coppertone® Claims

Each of these stories is well-handled on the expert keyboard of Ed Silverman over at Pharmalot — here is the Moody’s outlook upgrade story — and here is Ed’s Coppertone® false advertising settlement story — and a bit:

. . . .As part of the deal, Merck agreed not to use the terms “sunblock,” “waterproof,” “sweatproof,” “all day” and/or “all day protection” in the Coppertone labeling, advertising, marketing or promotion. And Coppertone products must contain labels that comply with federal law, according to the settlement agreement. . . .

Do go read all of Ed’s.
