Submission + - Microsoft pays for positive XBox One coverage, requires breaking FTC rules (kotaku.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft, partnered with Machinima, has put forth a promotion for YouTube personalities — make a video about the XBox One and get money for it. Problematically, they also require that the review not mention anything negative and not disclose that they're getting paid, which breaks FTC disclosure rules. Microsoft has a well-known history of astroturfing, but is this the first proof of them doing it illegally?
