1. Violations of Registration Process: Types & Remedies
The Security Exchange Commission (SEC) requires that publicly traded companies disclose financial information to their investors. Common registration violations include selling non-exempt securities, untrue statements, misstatements or omissions.
2. What Are Exempt Securities and Transactions? - Definition & Types
Exempt securities are financial instruments that do not need to be registered with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). They are generally backed by the government and may carry a lesser risk than securities offered by public companies.
3. Securities Fraud & Insider Trading: Definition, Regulations & Penalty
Securities fraud or insider trading is illegally trading stock on the open market using confidential information. It is usually done to gain an advantage over other traders.
4. Antitrust Law: Definition, Types & Outline
Antitrust laws are statutes developed to protect consumers from rapacious business practices by making it illegal for businesses to compete in unfair ways.
5. Horizontal and Vertical Agreements that Violate the Sherman Act
There are two types of restrictions under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. A horizontal agreement between competing businesses includes price fixing, and a vertical agreement between sellers and buyers includes engaging in resale price maintenance. Learn about both types of agreements in this lesson.
