Further investigation yields a class action lawsuit filed in PA alleging similar business practices dating back years.
According to the suit: "Rodale used a ''negative option marketing scheme,'' treating customers as if they've ordered the books unless they've taken steps to return them or taken steps to stop the books from coming, according to one of the attorneys involved in the case.
The case alleges that Rodale violated the federal Postal Reorganization Act, which provides conditions for sending unsolicited merchandise to consumers."
Further investigation yields many instances of similar business practices.
