New FTC rules
Mon, 10/5/09 11:50 AM
Does this new FTC rule affect reviews on Roadfood? If you tell a restaurant you are taking pictures of their food for Roadfood and they give you a free dessert, for example?
"The Federal Trade Commission will require bloggers to clearly disclose any freebies or payments they get from companies for reviewing their products...........the commission stopped short Monday of specifying how bloggers must disclose any conflicts of interest...........Penalties include up to $11,000 in fines per violation. The rules take effect Dec. 1."
