FTC plans to monitor affiliate blogs

I can see some good coming from this, but far too much bad as well. Since when is it illegal to get paid to say something? Now it turns into a freedom of speech issue. or is it a "truth in advertising" they are after? If there existed a magic bullet that you could immediately seperate the crooks selling snake oil and the honest Joe with a genuine package for success. Like I said, some good, and too much bad.

In any case it will take thousands of trained computer technicians at the FTC to keep up with this, day after day. I can see tens of thousands of cases where censorship is prevalent and an honest plan to make a dollar is dissected by a judge.
