Titan, a pyramid selling outfit that uses the Web to spread its message and recruit acolytes, is highlighting the problems of the cross-border nature of the Web. In the UK, pyramid selling has been outlawed, but this is not the case across the EU, let alone around the world. Consequently, as quickly as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) manages to shut off one line of entry to the UK, Titan manages to open up another operation elsewhere on the Web.
At the moment the operation, Titan III, is based in Holland and the DTI is said to be seeking help from the Dutch authorities to close the operation. Last July, a previous incarnation of Titan, run from Germany as the Titan Business Club, was wound down as an illegal lottery. The DTI unsuccessfully attempted to take similar action against Titan LLC and Titan International, both run from the US, though Titan LLC ended up in liquidation.
Anyone participating in pyramid sales in the UK is breaking the law, but it looks as though the ISPA, which acted by closing off access to child porn sites, is not considering any action in this case "unless one of our members brings it up at a meeting".
