|Title EN||Does the ban on pyramid promotional schemes challenge the business model of a typical direct selling company?||URL EN||N/A|
The article presents a hypothetical example of a fictional direct selling company's business model and discusses whether it would be legal under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 Sch.1 Item 14 prohibiting pyramid promotional schemes and which is the equivalent to Annex 1, item 14 of the UCP Directive.
It examines the separate elements of the Item 14 prohibition, including the meanings of "consideration" and "consumer".
