FTC plans to monitor blogs
The Federal Trade Commission is planning to regulate blogs. All that you would have to do to catch their attention is have a link to an online retailer.
A quote from the article:
“If the guidelines are approved, bloggers would have to back up claims and disclose if they’re being compensated – the FTC doesn’t currently plan to specify how. The FTC could order violators to stop and pay restitution to customers, and it could ask the Justice Department to sue for civil penalties.”
The guidelines are here:
Don’t worry though, if the guidelines get passed I’ll still say whatever I want. If they fine me I’ll raise hell.
