You Can Be Held Legally Responsible for Your Affiliates
The Federal Trade Commission’s message for Internet marketers is very clear:
“Monitor your Internet affiliate program, monitor what your affiliates do, and put your agreement in writing”
The legal penalties that result from inadequate training of your affiliates and the lack of monitoring them are far more problematic and expensive than any inconvenience or expense involved in monitoring the performance of your affiliates to make sure they are obeying advertising regulations and the terms of your affiliate agreement.
In return for sales made by the affiliate, the website or blog owner agrees to pay the affiliate an agreed-on percentage of the sale or a fixed dollar amount.

Get it in Writing
Although it will not completely release you from legal liability, an affiliate agreement will explain both parties’ rights and obligations, help prevent future misunderstandings, and minimize your liability.
Do not rely on a verbal agreement when doing business on the Internet. Verbal agreements are a poor substitute for an attorney-drafted affiliate agreement and could put your business and intellectual property at risk.
