Price Fixing is Now Legal – Brighten Purses Won

Brighten Purses Won – Let’s Show Brighten & Others They Lost!

Brighten (http://www.brighton.com/), the maker of purses and many other consumer products ‘won’ a Federal Supreme Court case today. They established their privilege to set prices at which an independent retailer can sell their products. This ruling expands to all manufacturers and all retailers.

So now, you can expect to pay higher prices for many things. Retailers are now forbidden to discount the price a manufacturer decides the price should be. To whit, a manufacturer controls the price. From now on, it will be impossible to find a good deal on many things. Manufacturers can now legally engage in price fixing.

I encourage everyone to show Brighten they actually lost. I encourage everyone to show our Federal Legislature this ruling is not liked and they need to change the laws so a retailer can sell at any price the retailer wants:

Do not buy any Brighten product!

If you just bought a Brighten product and you can return it – return it!

Don’t buy a Brighten product again until the law is changed.

I can not imagine any price fixed product without a substitute that is not price fixed.
Do you personally know of other manufacturers that follow this practice and should be added to this list?
(Please only suggest manufacturers and their products you definitely know price fixing is true.)
