Surfview Entertainment strives to assure the SEC that producers are aware of the law in regard to advertising for active investors.
Producers who have a listing in "Projects Seeking Active Investors" must only be advertising "Business Plan Available To Active Investors". When a potential investor responds, only something resembling a business plan may be forwarded, (i.e., no private placement offerings!).
The SEC insists that producers know the distinction between an "active investor" and a "passive investor".
Surfview Entertainment will not be liable for and does not offer legal advice. It is strongly suggested that you contact a knowledgable entertainment finance attorney early.
A knowledgable entertainment finance attorney should be familiar with the following.
Active Investor (Nonsecurities) Vehicles.
The Self-funded Sole Proprietorship Business Plans The Investor-Financing Agreement Joint-Venture Financing The Initial Incorporation
Should your search for a few active investors be unsuccessful, (there being too many potential participants needed for full funding), your knowledgable entertainment finance attorney should be familiar with the following.
Passive Investor (Securities) Vehicles.
The Investment Contract Limited Partnerships Limited Liability Companies Corporate Financing The Out-of-State Corporation S Corporations Small Corporate Offering Registration Regulation A Offerings S-1 Public (Registerred) Offerings Over-the-Counter Companies A NASDAQ Company Stock Exchange Companies Convertible or Participatory Debt Instruments Regulation D, Rule 504 Offerings Regulation D, Rule 505 Offerings Regulation D, Rule 506 Offerings
