Details

After 12 years of rulemaking activity, the

Federal Trade Commission issued the first

revision to the FTC Franchise Disclosure Rule

since it was promulgated in 1979. The

Commission amendments to the rule include

separating the requirements for franchising

and business opportunity ventures. This will

streamline the disclosure requirements, minimize

compliance costs, and respond to changes

in technologies and market conditions. This

book includes full-text of the FTC Disclosure

Rule and expert analysis and explanatory

materials from the CCH Editorial staff and David

J. Kaufmann senior partner with Kaufmann,

Feiner, Yamin, Gildin & Robbins LLP, New York.
