Section 17(b) & Crowdfunding - What me worry? Webinar 2/26/2015
Join Douglas Ellenoff and Adrienne Ward for a webinar hosted by Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA) on Feb 26, 2015 at 1:00 PM EST.
An entire cottage industry has emerged around online fundraising/crowdfunding platforms, with promoters claiming to help companies successfully raise money online. What many marketers don’t know, however, is that a variety of laws and regulations govern how businesses can accept investment capital and who can market these securities. This all goes back to Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933 and the hawking of worthless stocks by unscrupulous unregistered “brokers” during the Great Depression. Section 17(b) remains in effect, and the SEC still uses it to prosecute promoters. During the webinar, the panel, which also includes security industry veteran Sara Hanks, will walk participants through the following: Why should you be concerned about Section 17(b)? How do you comply with Section 17(b)? What are best practices for compliance? What do you do if the SEC knocks on your door?
