Course Description

Crowdfunding is the process of receiving investment capital from a variety of sources using online tools. This is a relatively new concept for lawyers. Until recently, crowdfunding was largely limited to "donation-based" crowdfunding though websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, which helps businesses and nonprofits raise funds in exchange for various goods and services. But with the 2012 passage of the JOBS Act revising the rules on private securities restrictions on private placements, "equity-based" crowdfunding has started to gain steam.

In this program, crowdfunding attorney Mark Roderick will cover the nuts and bolts of equity-based crowdfunding. Among the topics discussed are the SEC's amendments to Rule 506, the already implemented Title II, the forthcoming Title III, and the various rules and definitions associated with these exemptions.

This is the best lecture I've seen yet. The presenter had a very conversational tone. It didn't sound like he was just reading a script.
