FTC Considering Regulate Blogs

without comments

Well this figures, I was reading Snowflakes in Hell and came across a rather scary news article…

The Federal Trade Commission is considering sticking their fingers in bloggers’ business. They want to require bloggers who review products to disclose whether the product being reviewed was given to them, is a sponsor’s product, or if the reviewer is getting paid to do the review.

Up next requiring bloggers to be “fair and balanced.”
