- Coca-Cola Company in India - this needs to be restructured so that the India case study is separated from the gen Coca Cola profile
- Denying the Tiananmen Square massacre - this needs rewriting and better referencing.
- Nike counters sweatshop allegations - very thin so not worth including as a case study at this point
- Truax, ditto
- SCO Group campaign against the free Linux OS, ditto

On November 4, 2003, voters in Multnomah County, Oregon will vote on ballot measures 26-51 and 26-52, which, if passed, will effectively condemn the assests of Portland General Electric (an Enron subsidiary) and PacifiCorp and establish a peoples' utility district (PUD) as a replacement. Shortly after a majority of the county commissioners agreed to pass the decision on to voters, slickly-produced radio and televison ads appeared, denouncing the PUD as an expensive and unnecessary layer of government. The ads directed people to visit the group's website at www.citizensagainstthegovernmenttakeover.com, which claims to be a grassroots "committee of individuals, businesses and organizations", but makes no mention of Gard & Gerber, the Portland PR firm who registered the group's domain name. A quick visit to Gard & Gerber's own web site reveals that PGE is one of their clients.
