Dear readers,


India and direct sales seem to be like fire and water. For years, MLM companies have been complaining about the lack of clear legal regulations for the industry. For them, it is very important that there is a clear distinction between reputable MLM and fraudulent pyramid schemes. The sad climax of the ongoing legal uncertainties and the arbitrariness of the authorities in India was the arrest of William S. Pinckney (CEO of Amway India) in May of this year. Pinckney has been in custody for more than two months and there is still no official indictment and also no court proceedings.


India offers enormous economic potential. The country with the second highest population in the world at 1.25 billion people is incredibly diverse, exciting and an extremely lucrative market for nearly all industries.
