A quick look at the new FTC rules for bloggers has me thinking the Feds are completely insane. I hope they don't expect a disclosure statement each and every time a blogger mentions / reviews a product.
Let's say I get a free sample of cologne at the mall, I come home and mention here that it smells like donkey ass. Could I be fined for failing to disclose that I got the cologne for free rather than paid for it myself?
Hell, I did a review of Comp-Tac's MTAC holster on this site and mentioned that they also sent me a package of smarties candy for free. Had I failed to mention that then I would have reviewed their product without disclosing that they sent me free stuff, which come Dec. 1 would be a no-no.
