I really like the idea of posting market prices …but…

I'm not a lawyer, but I've had my share of “acquaintances” with them in business.  In the last industry I worked in, the presidents of three large companies (I’m talking over $100 million in sales each) went to jail for alleged “price fixing”.  It was alleged that one company was advertising a price and that the other companies would set their price accordingly.  It was further alleged that there was an agreement to operate in this manner.  The “proof” came from a disgruntled former employee who alleged that he overheard a conversation in which the alleged “collusion” took place.  The three company presidents were convicted under the RICO Act and sent to jail for a couple of years.

I say all this to give a heads up to anyone in the business of selling crabs… be careful what you post.  I really like the idea of posting market prices, but don’t want to see anyone get hosed by a greedy trial lawyer or an employee with a grudge.  I’m not trying to over-react here, but we never thought the other guys would go to jail either!  Its the world we live in… unfortunately.

It might be good to let the price postings be done by customers.

Cheers

I think they probably have better things to do than check local blue crab prices on this board. We aren't exactly Enron or Haliburton!

 Cool Doc

PS I can just see them raiding the next crab gathering: Up against the wall, Jack1747! Drop the jimmie, KingCrabber! Move away from the Old Bay, Joe Crabs!
