Business Opportunity Rule
May 27, 2008 Re: Business Opportunity Rule, R511993 Dear Secretary Clark: Thank you for revising the Proposed Business Opportunity Rule, R511993 to exempt legitimate direct sellers from coverage. As a company with a subsidiary that operates a direct selling business, we share your commitment to protecting the public from unfair and deceptive business practices that undermine consumer confidence in legitimate business enterprises such as our own. As a member of the Direct Selling Association, we agree with the comments and suggestions submitted by the Direct Selling Association to the FTC in response to the proposed rule. We encourage you to incorporate these recommendations as you work to implement the proposed rule. Thank you for considering our views. Sincerely, JOCKEY INTERNATIONAL, INC. Edward C Emma President and Chief Operating Officer
