Great news! I'm sure that a $11,000 fine will be enough to make all of those Autodesk-fueled bloggers (with their biased market-speak) clam up -- particularly about things like how great the Revit 2010 ribbon is.


good thing to do as well!

although the figure of $11,000 does not make sense to me...

economic penalty for an ethical requirement does not always work!


What would be even cooler, would be to hit up jaded talkbackers with a fine. For example, I am part of a vendor (ok, still in stealth, but nonetheless), but I identify myself with my real name and organization. Having talkbackers/responders with made up identities posing as customers - that should be a punishable misrepresentation.

It probably won't hold up. It's that First Amendment issue.

What's a bloger? Does a tweet count? Where's the opportunity for a 200 word disclaimer in a 140-charachter tweet? What about commentary in blogs? Do the same rules apply?

Did I really need to say that?
