- Excerpt from: FTC to Hold Workshop on Native Advertising

In September the Federal Trade Commission (“Commission” or “FTC”) announced that it would convene a December 4, 2013 workshop in Washington, DC on “native advertising.” “Native advertising,” or “sponsored content,” is the phrase used by the Commission to refer to the practice of blending ads with news, entertainment, and other content in digital media.
