The Federal Trade Commission is after Bloggers!!

Many blogger's out there have been enjoying "Money Making" by writing paid posts, affiliate links and the like. Now Guess what? The Federal Trade Commission(FTC) is going to bring strict rules against this issue!

Because of the scamming all across the Internet the new "FTC Regulations" will be up soon. These new regulations will put most of the small time blogger's out of business for sure!

Izea's PayPerPost program was one the targets of the FTC, we all know how payperpost has been generating a good income for many bloggers(including me) and also helps advertisers in promoting their products. But Izea defended itself as it requires a "Disclosure Policy" for the blogs which state that some posts(or all of them) are paid for.

So if a blogger fails to have a disclosure policy stating the same will be on the not-so-good side of the FTC. Guess what! Even the company will be held responsible for that!

The FTC says that the rules will be strict and will extend even to the practice of affiliate links! So blogger's I reckon you get your own Disclosure policy soon, I have got mine and I guess based on these new so called guidelines of the FTC, changes will be made even to that!

Hmm..There is this recession and now FTC, what next?

Well i wish FTC all the luck(as they need it) since they will have to deal with an ocean of blogger's!
