    Broad New FTC Guidelines for Endorsements and Testimonials Create Risks for Manufacturers, Advertisers, Bloggers and Others

    Publications

    New revised Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines for advertisements containing endorsements or testimonials focus attention on “new media” as an advertising venue. The guidelines require transparency and disclosure of any material relationship between the manufacturer and the endorser or poster.

The guidelines make clear that the same rules apply to “new media” as well as to TV, radio and print ads.
