Head note

This article criticizes the inclusion of the prohibition of pyramid selling in the UCP Directive, as the restrictive definition given to the notion "consumer" in this Directive makes the provision redundant. In Belgium, a broader scope of application is accorded to the prohibition of pyramid selling.
