Is a distributorship agreement that prohibits the distributor from engaging in any network marketing enforceable?


Dean was a distributor of Tahitian Noni products who, in violation of his distributor agreement, solicited members of his downline to drop Tahitian Noni and promote a competitor’s products. Tahitian Noni moved for an injunction prohibiting Dean from promoting the competitor or any other network marketing company based upon the distributor agreement which prohibited Dean from engaging in any other network marketing program while he was with Tahitian Noni.
