The Global Information Network is presented as a collaboration of insider secrets covering a myriad of information ranging from health, metaphysics, religion, science, politics, conspiracies and government. The GIN is promoted by Kevin Trudeau, a well known infomercialist and bestselling book writer whose works have generated both controversy and profits.
The Global Information Network clearly states on the first and every page of the website that it is not a business opportunity. It is a community of likeminded individuals, who have come together to sell information, and form a membership driven social group that shares this information, opportunities and the like for a price. However, they do offer and affiliate program for resale and promotion of GIN and which pays $200 for every referral, distinctly making it a business opportunity.
