## Abstract

We show that the length of the set $$\{z \in {\Bbb C}: \left|\Pi^n_{i=1} (z - \alpha_i) \right| = 1\}$$ is at most $8\pi e n$. This gives the correct rate of growth in a long standing open problem of Erd\"os, Herzog and Piranian and improves the previous bound of $74n^2$ due to Pommerenke.
