Comments:Quixtar and the IBOAI support reasonable business disclosures that are fair and help consumers make wise choices. In our view, here is what the rule should and should not do. The rule.... *Should create a level playing field by requiring clear, simple, and standardized income disclosures that apply to all direct sellers. *Should provide a reasonable cancellation policy. *Should not require a seven-day waiting period before a prospect could register. *Should not require IBO references be provided to prospects or disclosure of past litigation. *Should not require financial records to be disclosed to prospects. We have been IBO's for over 20 years and have operated our business with honesty and integrity. Don't punish the whole direct selling industry because of the behavior of some individuals.
