J. Scott Colesanti, Professor of Legal Writing

On March 23, 2015, Professor J. Scott Colesanti submitted a comment on the Massachusetts crowdfunding proposal.

The pending proposal, one of about a dozen such state initiatives, would modify federal securities regulations governing small-business financing to meet the exponential growth of “crowdfunding.”

Such measures have been prompted by the success of groups such as Kickstarter, which boasts of contributions of approximately $1.5 billion since 2009.
