I have been a member of MTNA, WMTA and our local association for 20 years. It is a valuable organization for setting professional standards for independent music teachers. We do not set fees for our teachers to abide by and we respect each other's livelihood by not luring students away from each other. This is professional conduct, not illegal. I'm sorry to see the Obama administration, which I have some modicum of respect for, engaging in this kind of activity. I hope this will be over soon, so you can spend time catching the real unethical businesses and associations.
