Fairfax Media’s Domain property listings business will launch a cross-platform advertising campaign promoting itself as "Australia’s #1 Property App". Domain first used the tagline in early 2016, but rival REA Group challenged this claim in court. The Federal Court upheld REA’s complaint about two of Domain’s ads, ruling that they included false or misleading representations. However, the court ruled that Domain was entitled to claim in ads that it has the nation’s leading property app.
