In essence the Courts declared that because the contract could be unilaterally changed by Quixtar, then they are not valid contracts. One immediate result is that Quixtar is unable to enfoce arbitration in the Simmons et al vs Quixtar Inc case.
Network TwentyOne is proud to announce that it has recently passed the Quixtar Professional Development Accreditation Program for North America having satisfied all requirements laid out in the Quixtar Accreditation process.

They engage in communications that comply with the IBO Communications Platform, which can be summed up as: focus on business and “treat others as you would like to be treated.” They demonstrate a commitment to best practices and ongoing education. They offer professional development compensation plans that are transparent, written, and contractual. And, Organizations who achieve accreditation are in good standing and compliance with Quixtar.

I was excited when the Accreditation program was launched, I was even more excited when it effectively became compulsory thanks to being linked to QBI awards and bonuses. I’m just hopeful that the professionalism which it imposes on BSM companies and organizations spreads throughout Amway around the world.
A few days later, Quixtar Director of Communications Beth Dornan, responded with a post Not ashamed of Amway, outlining the relationship between Quixtar and Amway and admitting to some nostalgia for Amway amongst longer-term employees. I asked in a comment in that blog if there were plans to resurrect the Amway name in the US. Beth deftly responded without answering.
Amazingly, even since the transformation became public, announced on Quixtar and on Quixtar Blogs, I’ve still seen IBOs around the internet deny a connection between Quixtar and Amway. Now, in the past it has been correct to say Quixtar is not Amway, but it has never been correct to deny any connection and say they’re completely different – they’re not. In 2008 however Quixtar is becoming Amway, so to try to limit, minimize, or even deny a connection is specious to say the least. A moment’s internet research by a prospect will lead to them discovering they’ve been lied to. A great way to build a business relationships – “join with me in building a great business! By the way, as you’ve just learned, I can’t be trusted!”
Wth Stage 1 in place, the Amway name is clearly at the top of the Quixtar website. In 5 months, stage 2 will occur and Amway will become the more prominent name. In a year, Quixtar will be consigned to the history bin
One day I hope we can consign deceitful IBOs to the same place.
