FTC Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising

For purposes of this part, an endorsement means any advertising message (including verbal
statements, demonstrations, or depictions of the name, signature, likeness or other identifying
personal characteristics of an individual or the name or seal of an organization) that consumer are likely to believe reflects the opinions, beliefs, findings, or experiences of a party other than the sponsoring advertiser, even if the views expressed by that party are identical to those of the sponsoring advertiser. The party whose opinions, beliefs, findings, or experience the message appears to reflect will be called the endorser and may be an individual, group, or institution.
