Comments:Dear Sir or Madam: I am writing this letter to express my strong opposition to the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I understand that it is the responsibility of the Federal Trade Commission to protect the public from "unfair and deceptive acts or practices," but the rule as proposed would make it very difficult for me to operate my business as a Scent-Sations Inc Independent Distributor. The proposed rule calls for the release of any information regarding lawsuits that allege misrepresentation, or unfair or deceptive practices over a ten-year period. It does not matter if the company was found innocent or not liable. Today, almost all business lawsuits contain claims of misrepresentation or unfair competition. It does not make sense to me that I would have to disclose these lawsuits unless Scent-Sations Corporation, or its officers, directors or sales department employees, had been found guilty or liable. Therfore I DO wish this would STOP! It will RUIN my future business! And will NOT disclose any information period! I'm totally against this letter!!
