And, no, it is not false advertising because the company did not fail to deliver a promised benefit from the use of its product.
In criminal law, fraud is the crime or offense of deliberately deceiving another in order to damage them – usually, to obtain property or services unjustly.
The racquet companies are deliberatly deceiving the public into buying racquets buy using paint jobs on the Pro's racquets.
The issue is not that the racquets being sold are good or bad but that the Pro's racquets are painted and marketed as using what we buy. That is the fraud. A example is Agassi never used the Flexpoint Radical Oversize he used the Original Radical Trisys 260 Oversize but Head in every advertisement said Agassi used the Flexpoint Radical to sell racquets.
