Kendall and Kylie Jenner in legal trouble and public relations mess after using images of iconic musicians without permission from the owners of the trademarks. They definitely need a better intellectual property lawyer. https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2017/jun/29/kylie-kendall-jenner-t-shirt-line-pulled-notorious-big-tupac #marcapr #trademark #trademarklaw #solidrep

A debt is a bet on someone's future ability to pay.  Okay, so why are sellers and lenders willing to make deals with someone who is already broke?  

Well, recent cases show that some lenders deliberately create their products with an expectation of substantial default.  Instead of making fairer lending terms for the consumer, they created the debt business.  

For example, Joe owns a car dealership.  Louis needs a car but has "bad credit".  Joe doesn't really care if Louis can't pay for it because the business deal is already rigged in favor of everyone involved except the consumer.   All Joe needs to do is find someone to lend Louis the money and become Louis creditor.  Bank agrees to lend Lous the money as long as a monthly amount is paid.

Suppose Joe misses a couple of payments on that high interest loan the bank qualified him for.  Now the bank has the right to gain posession of that car because Louis breached the agreement.  

Joe doesn't care, he already got paid on day 1 by bank.  The bank doesn't care because there's already a market in place to sell not only the car but to sell the right to collect the rest of the money from Louis. 

What about Louis?  Well Louis's credit rating is going to decline even more which will mean even higher interest loans, he'll get phone calls from debt collection agencies, that debt collector might sue him and he doesn't have transportation which might make him lose his job. Then....

Law enforcement: In the past 10 years, the FTC has brought 82 weight-loss-related law enforcement actions, and since 2010, it has collected nearly $107 million for consumer restitution. Early this year, the agency announced Operation Failed Resolution, targeting new weight-loss fads that include food additives, human hormones, skin creams and acai berries.

The Commission has also noted several disturbing developments in weight-loss advertising:
reliance on proprietary studies using erroneous or fabricated data.
marketers capitalizing on weight-loss fads propelled to popularity by trusted spokespeople such as one recent FTC case involving marketers of the Pure Green Coffee dietary supplement. Within weeks of an April 2012 Dr. Oz Show touting green coffee bean extract, these marketers were making overblown claims about the supplement online, such as, “lose 20 pounds in four weeks” and “lose 20 pounds and two to four inches of belly fat in two to three months.”
Media Outreach: To combat the promotion of fraudulent weight-loss products in respected media outlets, the FTC recently issued a “Gut Check” reference guide that advises media outlets on seven claims in weight-loss ads that experts say simply cannot be true and that should cause media outlets to think twice about running the ads.
