FTC Watching Kickstarter Campaigns

The Federal Trade Commission took its first consumer protection action on a crowdsourcing campaign. Erik Chevalier, an Oregon man, launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 to produce a board game. He raised $122,000 then stopped production on the game. The FCC fined him $111,000 but suspended the fine. #tech
