Although it is not addressed directly and may be a gray area, it appears that you must acknowledge that you receive affiliate commissions if someone decides to buy a product based upon a review and an affiliate link. It is compensation.
The template does not cover affiliate commissions and if you have no financial ties to an advertiser, you do not even need to make a statement like that. The FTC rules ONLY apply if you DO receive something in return for writing a review, testimonial or endorsement.
What I do not like it the FTC's loose interpretation of an endorsement. What I would call an opinion, they define as an endorsement. If an advertiser or manufacturer gives you a product and you write, "Hey, I tried this out and I really like this product because...", that is an endorsement under the new rules.
I think the only people they are going to go after are those pushing fraudulent medical devices and making wild claims about weight reduction products. I did extensive research on this and it appears that this is why the rulings were modified. They are targeting people pushing products that are doing harm to others. I noticed that the informercials for weight reduction products disappeared in my area in the USA.
