I am TOTALLY OPPOSED to the FTC INTERFERENCE with MTNA GUIDELINES. Just because the business community operates on the basis of " the law of the jungle" in stealing each others clients and hostile takeovers and other immoral, unethical practices, that is no justification for imposing those repugnant standards on a professional organization that before the FTC bullying operated with the highest ethical standards. Recruiting another teacher's students, without the consent of that teacher, is COMPLETELY UNETHICAL and creates an atmosphere of unhealthy competition among colleagues and students. Doctors do not solicit each others patients and the same should apply to music teachers in MTNA and other professional groups. FTC-- YOU NEED TO BACK OFF and allow MTNA reinstate the former policy without fear of legal action.
