Changes proposed to 29-year-old Federal Trade Commission guidelines will, if implemented, more strictly regulate the way advertising companies are allowed to sell endorsed products. The FTC is scheduled to consider new guidelines that will require advertising and marketing companies that use endorsements to prove that alleged results are actually valid. Also, the companies that use endorsements that promote a celebrity user's dramatic results have to show that ordinary users will have similar results or describe in the ad what results can "typically" be expected.
