Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. If I receive badass clothing with a logo and I wear it in a photo, also disclosure is required. The same is true if I use an Amazon link that earns a commission instead of one that doesn’t. Disclaimers within each article would not provide readers with a pleasant reading experience and would be laborious for me, but rules are rules. To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product I use or recommend, the following all hold true:
- The writer got fed.
- The writer received gifts of technological capability.
- The writer got swag.
- The writer is involved with someone within the text.
- The writer received compensation for the writings.
- The writer received stock options.
The legal world we traverse is a tricky one but required for CYA. Please feel free to copy to your own blog should it be required for you!
