Yet another reason why I'm one of those libertarian crackpots. You should forward this blog to Reason Magazine.

Ick. This is so not cool. Thanks for bringing up the issue.

Loved your line: "That's like requiring dudes who wear Ed Hardy tee shirts to walk around and tell every person at the club that they did not receive compensation for sporting the company's name and logo."

Ed Hardy products bug the crap out of me, so that statement was near and dear to my heart ;)

I'll say the same thing here I said to my clients -- not only does the FTC not have the manpower to police blogs, but if they try to enforce this they'll run afoul of the ACLU and other assorted 1st amendment hawks faster than and Ed Hardy wearing douchebag can slather himself in hearts and skulls. Unless I miss my guess, this will be primarily aimed at the companies using flogs to attempt to put one over on consumers, such as "WalMarting Across America" and the profoundly idiotic "All I Want For Xmas Is A PSP."
