Business Opportunity Rule

Tyrie Barrott of Melaleuca, Inc. (comment #535221-00058, dated 5/27/2008) is merely parroting the DSA in its comments applauding the exemption of MLM (which they call “direct selling”) from RPBOR. I also object to the suggested language for “business opportunity” and “buyback” in a Revised Business Opportunity Rule, believing it far better to have no rule at all than to have a rule exempting MLM. So the appropriate language for a bad rule is irrelevant in my mind. For the facts and a correct and consumer-oriented rebuttal of the points they make, see attached rebuttal of DSA comments by Consumer Awareness Institute – Comment #535221-00091.
