What if I pay to place a political ad on someone else’s Web page? Would I be subject to any rules and regulations?

Yes. An ad placed on someone else’s Web page for a fee would be considered to be a “public communication” under the regulations. To take this question one step further, paying to place an ad on another’s website may result in a contribution or expenditure. All disclaimer requirements would also apply in this situation.
