Bloggers: fess up on freebies, or be fined $11,000

Did you get a free book for reviewing?  Did you get any other sort of gift?  Do you get an Amazon affiliates kickback?

Fess up, or the FTC will fine you $11,000.

I've always stated as clearly as possible when I was reviewing a book or other product that was given to me. Thus, I don't think the new law will affect me much and it seems like a good idea.

However, what I may start doing that I haven't done before is to make a similar disclaimer when I review books or products purchased with my own funds that I have NOT received that item for free.
