The focus of this Article is on honest businesses that do not realize they may be legally regulated as "franchisors" or "business opportunity sellers" and subject to potentially awful consequences due to noncompliance. This Article first discusses federal and other states' laws, then the Texas Business Opportunity Act (BOA), and finally, practical and litigation consequences.
