Course Description

Length: 1h 12min    Published: 10/6/2014    
Crowdfunding is a great tool for artists and entrepreneurs alike to raise funds for their endeavors. The reward/discount model made popular by websites such as Kickstarter is the most common type, but recent changes to the law have paved the way for equity crowdfunding to emerge as a key source for raising business capital. In this program, intellectual property attorney Deirdre Fox will cover the various types of crowdfunding models that may benefit your clients and discusses which options may or may not be best suited for their needs. Ms. Fox then delves into the main issues all attorneys need to be on the lookout for when counseling a client in this area, including consumer protection issues, securities law, and intellectual property.
