I read about this via ign.com very shady, but lets face it microsoft isn't the 1st company to do this and paying someone or people to say your product is good, that is just promotion

Actually, that's a pretty big breach.  Imagine if it happened to like Consumer Reports.  That's actually why they don't take advertising, to ensure editorial independence.  That's also why sometimes you read things like "This website is owned by AOL, subsidiary of Time Warner" or in things like stock quotes where Jim Kramer or whoever will disclose that they a certain personal or company position on a specific stock.  It's about being transparent about anything that may cause you to lean one way or the other on a subject.

Advertising and Ad Sales is one thing, but for Editorial (reviews, articles - basically the meat of a mag or website) to only say positive things about a product and then to be barred from disclosing such an agreement hurts the integrity of that company.  Maybe it's not big deal to us internet users that are jaded and such, but to the general public, this is a breach of trust.

Er... It is only Microsoft doing it. Sony, Steam or Nintendo are not partnering with a major gaming network that promises $ in return for undisclosed positive promotion for a console that will most likely not meet their sales expectations.

Everyone who signed up for this is obligated by law to disclose that they are  promoting the Xbox One and they are getting paid for it.

This contract says they can't say they're being paid to do so.

This is sleazy and basically bribery.  It is also illegal.

That's the problem. With this MSFT program, you can't. Previously, by law, you had to disclose if you were getting paid by the advertiser. If there was no disclosure, then you would assume that the content was NOT paid for and fully the author's opinion. With this secret program, you can't be sure of the authenticity of any Machima video on the XB1 that was posted during that time frame.

Here's the thing that is the most ridiculous of all this.

Quote :
The campaign apparently ended almost as quickly as it started. Microsoft had hoped to reach a combined 1.25 million views on participating videos, and Poptent lists the campaign as “expired” as of January 16th. The campaign was intended to last until February 9th if it did not hit the views limit, but the extremely popular Machinima partner channels reached over a million YouTube surfers within a matter of hours. Now Microsoft can pay off the minuscule $3,750 budget and continue to reap the rewards of videos that will be available for months and years to come.

From: http://games.yahoo.com/news/microsoft-reportedly-paid-youtube-video-makers-promote-xbox-201054010.html

MSFT's total outlay... $3,750. A potential youtuber's take? Maybe a couple hundred each? All that to sell your editorial integrity. I hope a list come out of people that took advantage of this and how much they earned from it. So we know how cheaply people can get paid to shill for a product.

This was on Machinima...who has always been shady. They have sent out a new email letting people know that they do have to disclose that they are being paid for this.

Thanks for the heads up on issues from 2004 & 2006. Hey, EA does it too so I guess it is Machinima & MS are absolved.

I'm not absolving anyone.  Machinima screwed up here and have now fixed it.  There's nothing wrong with MS using Machinima for a promotion.  Journalistic integrity is in the hands of the people making the videos....it's up to them if they want to be a shill for this.   Anytime you are under the arm of MCN like Machinima you have to follow their terms and condition...these do not come from MS, Sony, or anyone else.

Who cares if those are from 2004 and 2006?  MS is paying Machinima to help promote their product....nothing illegal or immoral about that.

I'll never believe Machinima just took it upon themselves to advertise for Microsoft out of the kindness of their hearts.  This is an obvious business decision and they were encouraged (financially) to do so.

The agreement that Machinima sent out was in clear violation of the FTC which states...

"When there exists a connection between the endorser and the seller of the advertised product that might materially affect the weight or credibility of the endorsement (i.e., the connection is not reasonably expected by the audience), such connection must be fully disclosed."

Machinima clearly stated in their CPM agreement to YouTubers NOT to disclose ANY portion of the agreement.  Now some may argue that paid advertisements / celebrity advertisements are just par for the course.  However IMO this scenario was clearly deceptive.

To me its clearly unethical and displays just how desperate Microsoft (and now EA) are. Why is this a big deal? Because the FTC has these rules in place for a reason...so big monopolizing businesses can give the little guy a fair shake.

Microsoft is definitely paying Machinima for their services...that is not disputed. Machinima came out with an update accepting responsibility for the language in their terms and conditions and sent out an update to the youtubers explaining that they must disclose they are being paid for their promotion of the the product. I still don't see where MS is being unethical here...they are paying Machinima for a promotion. Now Machinima on the other hand??

I'll give you that - we have no proof how MS disclosed the terms of the deal. However how do you just "forget" to include a disclosure? lol I'm guessing this was a "oops we got caught" fix.

The last few promotions Machinima had were for E3 and Comic Con. Both of those contracts had disclosures in them. The MS contract said they could not.

This is out of the norm. Do you really believe that Machinima did this on their own? They do promotions all the time.

Of course Machinima is going to fall on the sword. Machinima needs MS more than MS needs Machinima.

Trying to buy positive press and hiding it is unethical. It now damages the brand because when you see a positive review, video etc... You have to wonder if they are on the take.

I'm not absolving anyone.  Machinima screwed up here and have now fixed it.  There's nothing wrong with MS using Machinima for a promotion.  Journalistic integrity is in the hands of the people making the videos....it's up to them if they want to be a shill for this.   Anytime you are under the arm of MCN like Machinima you have to follow their terms and condition...these do not come from MS, Sony, or anyone else.

Who cares if those are from 2004 and 2006?  MS is paying Machinima to help promote their product....nothing illegal or immoral about that.

Machinima + PAX = Disclosure
Machinima + E3 = Disclosure
Machinima + Comic-Con = Disclosure
Machinima + Xbox = Non-disclosure

Interesting movements here by MS from http://blogs.computerworld.com/gov039t-legislationregulation/23423/microsoft-kills-stealth-xbox-marketing-campaign-was-ftc-its-tail


Yesterday Microsoft pooh-poohed any hint that there was anything wrong with the secret campaign, telling ars technica in part:

"This partnership between Machinima and Microsoft was a typical marketing partnership..."
But then hours later, Microsoft backed off, claiming that it didn't know about the marketing campaign, and killing it. The company told GeekWire:

"Microsoft was not aware of individual contracts Machinima had with their content providers as part of this promotion and we didn’t provide feedback on any of the videos. We have asked Machinima to not post any additional Xbox One content as part of this media buy and we have asked them to add disclaimers to the videos that were part of this program indicating they were part of paid advertising."
That's the exact opposite of what the company first said. First it claimed that the partnership was a "typical" one, but then later said it "was not aware of individual contracts Machinima had with their content providers as part of this promotion." How could it say the partnership was a typical one if it wasn't aware of the contracts?

By having Machinima add disclaimers to the videos saying they are part of paid advertising, Microsoft is complying with FTC guidelines, the very guidelines it initially said it hadn't violated.

So what happened? The FTC may well have been on Microsoft's tail, asking for materials related to the campaign. And if not, you can be sure that Microsoft's lawyers were on the company's tail, because the partnership seemed a clear violation of FTC guidelines.

No matter what happened, though, Microsoft didn't cover itself in roses with this one. Its initial response to the revelation was flat-out wrong, even if it did eventually do the right thing by pulling the campaign and offering full disclosure.




MS knew exactly what they were doing period
