The Questionable Line Between Crowdfunding And An Illegal Securities Offer; The Pabst Brewing Case Study
from the this-won't-last dept
The website has the typical "tiered" options that we've seen from other crowdfunding offers (though, what you get at each level isn't clearly explained). I'm assuming that this is something of a PR stunt by those ad firms, but I'm wondering if they may run into some serious legal problems pretty quickly. They're basically offering unregistered securities in another company without having gone through any of the rather strict legal process required to make any sort of investment offer of this nature. Even if it is just a joke, it seems like the kind of joke that could end up with people in court.
