Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
On this week’s Capital Thinking, Kevin O’Neill will begin with guest Carol Van Cleef for a conversation on the usage and implications of the digital currency known as Bitcoin. The protocol of Bitcoin introduces various technologies and economic properties that have numerous applications. Next, for any seller using third-party telemarketers, Paul Besozzi will explain a new ruling by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that will potentially hold the seller vicariously liable under federal common law principals of agency for certain violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) that are committed by such telemarketers. Finally, George Schutzer will discuss the tax consequences for noncompensatory partnership option and convertible instruments issued by a partnership or limited liability company.
