The rule was first established in Webster v. Omnitrition, 79 F.3d 776 (9th Cir. 1996), a case that MLM apologists fervently wish would disappear.“sale of products or services to ultimate users” does not include sales to other participants or recruits or to the participants’ own accounts.
Why does this matter? In answer to the charge that, in joining an MLM, one is really paying for the "opportunity" to engage in endless-chain recruiting, MLMers will say, "Oh, no! Why, we sold 1.4 billion units of our SuperHyperJungleJuicer last year!" That figure is a little less impressive when you find out that distributors bought 1.39999999 billion units, of which 1.39999998 billion are still sitting in garages somewhere.
