FTC To Challenge Fake Blogging, Spyware, Spam, and DRM

FTC

I'm skeptical of the Federal Trade Commission's ability to deal with spyware or Spam, but the crack-down on fake blogging and unlabeled DRM is interesting.

Fake blogs (flogs), like the ones set up by Sony to promote the PSP, also try to gain authenticity by masquerading as homegrown labors of love. And while most established media sites have policies designed to keep editorial and advertising separate, blogs may have no such rules in place.
And…
Case in point: the Sony BMG rootkit fiasco, a case in which the Commission actually did charge the company with deception for not informing consumers that certain CDs contained DRM that limited their usefulness.
