Comments:I strongly oppose "Business Opportunity Rule, R511993." As a Quixtar independent business owner, it would impose needless and unproductive burdens on my ability to operate a legitimate private franchise. Especially onerous are the requirements that each prospect receive a list of 10 local IBOs as references, as well as the requirement that each prospect receive a list of all lawsuits arbitrations and legal claims against Quixtar in the last 10 years. Imagine if, say, Wal-Mart had to provide every customer with a list of references as well as a list of lawsuits against it before they could shop there. You would call it madness. It is just a crazy to impose such burdens on Quixtar Independent Business Owners. This proposed regulation protects nobody. I repeat, nobody. All it does is impose an undue burden on legitimate business. I will be putting a word out to my fellow Quixtar IBOs to contact the FTC in opposition to this conspiracy in restraint of trade.
