Forever Living Products v. Blannter

less-

The Court found that a company can be liable under the anti-trust laws for prohibiting its distributors from carrying competing products, but that the regular prerequisites in an anti-trust action apply in the MLM industry just like any other. To run afoul of the Sherman and Clayton Acts, a company's actions must result in an injury to competition. Because Forever Living held such a small segment of the market in question, the court held that it could not exercise its market power to injure competition.
