Blue Sky Laws

Blue Sky Laws - What does it mean?

State regulations designed to protect investors against securities fraud by requiring sellers of new issues to register their offerings and provide financial details. This allows investors to base their judgments on trustworthy data.

The term is said to have originated in the early 1900s when a Supreme Court justice declared his desire to protect investors from speculative ventures that had "as much value as a patch of blue sky.

Comments from Prathap G…..

Blue Sky Laws must also be made mandatory to all politicians, especially those in India.
