Machinima BUSTED By FTC? - #32

Dude Soup: Machinima BUSTED By FTC? - #32

This week's podcast is brought to you buy Gameloft and Dungeon Hunter 5! Download on iOS: http://gmlft.co/dVgo2 or Android: http://gmlft.co/2w26W

We're also sponsored by Draft Kings: http://www.draftkings.com/ promo code "SOUP"

Lots of you guys have asked us to comment on this, so here it is! Our former employer, Machinima, has been found guilty of violating FTC guidelines. Ironically, despite working there, we didn't know anything more than anyone else out here on this ol' Internet. Still, this is a podcast, so get ready for a blast of opinions on the topic regardless.

We hope that our opinions are taken as just that: the opinions of a bunch of dudes on a YouTube channel, and not as anyone particularly affected by the story in one way or another.

    Not saying SeaNanners et al are JJ Abrams, but if JJ Abrams tweets out something hyping up Star Wars Episode VII, does he have to #Ad it? Totally agree with the FTC rules on paid adverts (like the sponsors for Dude Soup or RT Podcast), but it crosses an odd line with content you fund/create yourself. Does Burnie have to #Ad if he talks about Lazer Team on Twitter?

    Say a YouTube personality does a video that discusses a crowd funded project and encourages others to consider backing the project. If the person is also a backer of the project and the project has stretch goals, could the person be considered to have a material gain from recommending other look into the project?

    It would make more sense to require disclosure for short term deals (such as Gameloft sponsoring a podcast) rather than long term. For instance, if Funhaus makes a video of gameplay from the RWBY game after that is released, should they be expected to disclose in that particular video that they are a subsidiary of Rooster Teeth? Or is that ok because it is public knowledge that Funhaus is a part of Rooster Teeth?

      I cant emphasis enough that this is just my opinion, but I believe if they are being paid to show off something or advertise something in anyway, I think they should divulge the fact they are being paid. Ray did the the other day, he sent out a tweet stating his next tweet is an advertisement, I respected that.
