Comments:I was recently made aware of the fact that Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Business opportunities are being exempt from the "Business Opportunity Rule". I do not agree with this and feel they are getting special treatment. If you make a rule for a business opportunity all business opportunities should fall in this catagorie. What makes a MLM any differant from any other business oportunity out there? I also feel this would be a big opportunity for the MLM industry to scam more inocent people into thinking they can make a lot of money and stay home doing it. You can only sell or sign up a few people to sell an over priced product before they start to realize they were scammed and no one really wants the product. How many inocent people do you need to get hurt before you realize this exemption was a mistake?
