I believe that this is a huge over reach by the FTC into a voluntary code of ethics provision by MTNA. It has forced them to spend valuable money fighting the FTC rather than promoting music which is their stated purpose. Anyone with a modicum of common sense would agree that it is good professional manners not to poach other music teacher's students. Music teaching is still a genteel occupation practiced in large part by individuals and that code is hardly promoting monopolies! How preposterous!
