More on the Ethics of Freebies in the Blogosphere
Muhammed Saleem has a good discussion of “sponsorships and freebies” and the ethics of it all in the blogosphere. An excerpt:
Again, I find myself thinking that as long as it doesn’t influence your opinion at all (meaning if you hate the gift, you blog your hate), and as long as you make fair disclosure about getting the gift (some people forget), there shouldn’t be a problem at all.
It’s worth a read — and not just because he agrees with my belief that “Bloggers Shouldn’t Fear Freebies.”
