Question: As a manufacturer and retail marketer of health products do you know if there is a legal issue with what can or cannot appear in a blog?
Answer: Of course consult with your lawyers about any legal issues in terms of blogging. You do have to worry a bit about companies freaking out if you say anything negative. So do try to stay positive… in general.
The other issue with blogging is paying people by giving them product samples, etc., technically requires them to reveal this on their blog post per FTC regulations. So if you send out ‘free samples’ and in exchange expect a blog post / review, technically they are supposed to say this on their blog. But this is widely ignored on the Internet.
