The SEC proposed crowdfunding rules don’t permit significant curation of projects.
Although it’s not yet clear if sites can specialize in verticals, the rules do suggest that funding portals must take all comers.
So, what happens if a site “discriminates” on the basis of politics? Recently, Phelim McAleer complained on Fox News that Kickstarter rejected his TV movie on the convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell solely on the basis of subject matter, telling McAleer that the film violated their “community guidelines.”
So, McAleer went to Indiegogo and is currently seeking funding there.
