OP  10/05/09 2:40:06 PM#1

Just found this Associated Press note at WRAL.com in thier news/technology section.   Check your local news service to see if they have posted the full message for you to read.

"The FTC said Monday its commissioners voted  4-0 to approve the final Web guildlines which had been expected.  Violating the rules, which take effect Dec. 1, could bring fines up to $11,000 per violation.  Bloggers or advertisers also could face injunctions and be ordered to reimburse consumers for financial losses stemming from inappropriate product reviews."

I for one am looking forward to this new rule, just wish the fines were much, much higher, say in the million dallor range.  This should help to tone down all the new game hype that we are seeing now days of new games being released with parts not being in game they they are saying on the web and game boxes. Plus the over inflated reviewes that we have seen in the past that does not match what we find when we lay down our money to buy the reviewed game and play it.

 

But have fun looking for it and forming your own ideas about it.

The fines are 'per infraction', so say there's a poster here on these forums who is paid to spread the gospel about a certain game, and they post say 50 times... that's 50 X the fines (if they don't disclose their employer and get caught, of course).

 I highly doubt a public forum, such as these, falls under this ruling. Forums and blogs are seperate things. But even if these are covered by the ruling, the vast majority of people who post all over the place about how good a game is actually are just fans of the game. So don't expect much to change in that aspect.

 

The $11,000 does seem small, that could almost be factored into how much someone was paid to not disclose the info. So if someone wants it to seem like an actual review but they got paid, they get paid an extra $11,000 in case they get caught.

Boy, the FTC phone lines are going to be ringing off the hook with all the <insert MMO of choice> haters calling on anyone that says something good about a game they like. Of course the burden of proof is not on the person but the FTC, so most will just be ignored.

Whats that mean for here? Nothing will change.

this time i agree with you on 1 point: If you have nothing to hide, you shouldn't be worried.

i particularly like the disclosure as one attempt to end the payed hype increasing posts.

 

 edit: typo, hope there aren't more of them

Game sites are a different matter.

They make money from advertisers based on the htis they get. They get more hits if they have cool content to show. Especially if it's 'exclusive' content. Game companies can make such content available to whichever sites they choose. How much of that do they send to sites which are negative about their products?

It's not a coincidence that game sites generally treat new and upcoming releases with kid gloves.

I think this ruling has more to do with putting an end to the political operatives that are paid to go on the opposing party's sites and cause havoc, not MMO websites.

 

I don't think MMORPG.com has anything to worry about, nor anyone else.  This will not lead to personal blogs being censored or anything of that nature.  If it does, it will quickly be struck down as a violation of first amendment rights when it is abused.

The small fine points to an actual intent to enforce and collect. Im sure we will see a couple of first amendment cases as it has been ruled by the supreme court that it does apply to comercial speech. People will argue that selective prosecution may endanger equal access of the public to all opinions, or that it would allow corporations to control information release. Should be interesting although i agree we are unlikely to see much in the way of changes ourselves.

Just to make things clear...
I speak for myself and no one else, unless i state otherwise mine is just an opinion. A fact is something that can be independently verified, you may challenge such but with proof. You have every right to disagree with me through sound argument, i believe in constructive debate, but baseless aggression will warrant an unkind response.

It always does, as the State fears your opinion more than your gun.

If it helps to clean forums from "viral marketing" "social media marketing"  it is good . I have feeling some of the trolls on mmorpg forum are paid employees of a marketing company

Trolls and fanboys, yes. I think the latter are more cost-effective. Promoting your game will benefit you more than dumping on someone else's game.

It has nothing to do with being honest, it's that being forced to mention such things that's the problem.

Mentioning you received freebies implies you accepted that as payment for giving a positive review, even when that isn't the case.

People seem to forget not everyone lives in the USA, for most of us we couldnt care less about this nor it will affect anything, if this is actually going inplace then the solution is get european people to do your propaganda rather than americans.
