In an insurance-coverage dispute involving the interpretation of an "advertising injury" clause in a commercial general liability policy, district court's judgment is reversed where Iowa law, and not Illinois law, applies in this case as the court was not required to apply the substantive law of the forum state in a diversity case, and the parties had stipulated that Iowa law should control their dispute.  Under Iowa law the insurance policy does not require plaintiff to defend defendant in the underlying suit.
