Comments:As an update to my previous comments, it should be noted for the public record the UK judicial system has determined the strong reforms implemented by Amway UK last year are appropriate, and similar reforms need to be implemented in the United States. One of the links available that provides additional information can be found here: http://sev.prnewswire.com/advertising/20080514/CLW07014052008-1.html, a portion of which is, "The ruling by Mr. Justice Norris of the High Court declared that the company could continue doing business under a series of reforms volunteered by the company over the past year. The judge did express his belief that Amway allowed "misrepresentations" of its business by Independent sales organizations in years past, and failed to act decisively against those misrepresentations." Similar changes need to occur in the U.S. market.
