Which FTC questions should you comment on?

The following quiz is designed to help you focus your FTC comment on the new Business Opportunity Rule. All of the comments request substantial evidence to support your comment. You can find the original FTC announcement document here:



The 2011 Business Opportunity Rule (https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/rules/rulemaking-regulatory-reform-proceedings/business-opportunity-rule) was originally considered in 2006 to address a near endless flow of earnings claims, which prompted FTC action, from MLM companies. Through the coordinated efforts, supported in large part by the Direct Selling Association and facilitated by various lines of sponsorship within Amway, MLMs prevented this regulation by encouraging the FTC to adopt an under $500.00 limitation to the Business Opportunity Rule that would (presently or in the near future as of 2011) exempt most MLM company starter kits. This was in large part due to the volume of responses they received from distributors (nearly 17,000).


In order to bring appropriate action against MLM companies we need to mobilize as many people as possible to share their thoughts and comments on this rule-making. This quiz is designed to help you focus your efforts and comments where they can be most effective.
