    I came across a website that does product reviews, and they have a link to profit disclosure that basically states they get money from affiliate programs, etc etc, I guess basically stating that there opinion may be somewhat biased.
    And it was written by their lawyer.

    Is there any law regarding this? Making recommendations for people to buy X product, when the only reason you're doing it is because you're getting a cut.. and not telling them? I mean small products are probably not a big deal, but I have one site that is reviewing and referring people to a $3000+ product.
