The nature of "crowdfunding" is changing with the recent enactment of state and federal laws and regulations. Soon, private companies will be able to solicit equity investment via the Internet with less disclosure and regulatory hurdles than in the past. While this may lead to more job creation, the reduced disclosure requirements are creating concern about the potential for fraud and a lack of transparency. Our panel discussion will focus on these ethical issues.
