Since violation of macronational law in a venue sponsored or operated by Nova Roma opens the republic and corporation to the possibility of legal action for abetting that violation, the Aediles Curules are compelled to protect the republic and the corporation by ensuring that such violations cease immediately on determination that they have occurred.


  1. To meet macronational legal requirements vendors in Nova Roman venues in the United States of America who take orders by surface mail, email, or telephone are required to comply with the Mail and Telephone Merchandise Order Rule of the Federal Trade Commission. The text of the rule and guidelines for compliance are provided by the Federal Trade Commission at: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/buspubs/mailorder.htm
  2. In the event that the Aediles Curules receive a complaint of noncompliance with this rule by a vendor under their authority and the Aedilician Court in accordance with the Edictum do Commercio Iusto should find that the rule has been violated, the violator's privilege of advertising in the Macellum will be suspended immediately for a period of one year, a request will be placed before the Censores for removal of the violator from the Ordo Equester, if applicable, and for a nota depriving the violator of the rights of commercium (carrying on business in NR venues), honores (holding office, including senatorial rank), and suffragium (voting in Comitia) for one year, and the Federal Trade Commission will be informed of the violation.
  3. Like all judgments of the Aedilician Court in accordance with the Edictum de Commercium Iusto, a judgment under this edictum shall be subject to appropriate intercessio and appeal to the Comitia Populi Tributa. Notice of appeal must be received within seventy-two hours of publication of the judgment.
  4. This edictum takes effect immediately.
