Legal and Regulatory Voices of DRMA
FTC’s Negative Option Rule Remains ‘As Is,’ but Beware the States 
During the summer, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued what many in the direct response industry considered to be an early Christmas present. Following a lengthy rulemaking review process, the agency decided in August not to broaden the scope of its “Negative Option Rule,” which many had feared would happen when the agency started its review in 2009.

DRMA Spotlight: Hitting a Marketing & Production Home Run

“When Rob Albert and I formed Grand Slam Direct, we didn’t want to be just another production company,” says Frank Battisti, co-founder and executive producer at Carlsbad, Calif.-based Grand Slam Direct (GSD). “With Rob’s experience selling hundreds of millions of units of his own products at retail, it made complete sense to be marketers — but with my 14 years of experience in production, we agreed to provide a great production service and take on both in-house and outside projects.”

The Direct Response Marketing Alliance (DRMA) member company is just more than two years old today, but has found solid success — even though the learning curve was steep early on for Battisti.
