FTC Rules About Blogging & Disclosure

This has been the talk on twitter yesterday (Mon Oct 5th) and on a few blog posts that I saw on my blog reader.

An Article on MSNBC website that states that bloggers have to disclose if they have received a product for free or have been paid for reviewing products. This is something that I know we’ll all want to pay attention to, especially since the fines can reach up to $11,000 per violation.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33177160/ns/technology_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/

The law will start being enforced on December 1st.

I am not sure how this will play out for me and my fellow Canadian bloggers.

Anyways, I just wanted to put it out there that I don’t get paid for reviews. My only compensation I receive is the books I receive from publishers and/or authors and I do make a note of that in my reviews. So all my reviews are 100% my thoughts and opinions and my opinions are not swayed by the way I receive my book.
