Securities Law: An Overview

Stocks and bonds are easily recognizable as securities, but did you know that promissory notes may also be securities? So can certain joint venture interests and many other types of investment contracts. Then there are cryptocurrency altcoins, which are sometimes securities and sometimes not.
How do you identify a security? What are some of the requirements related to offering and selling securities? How do they differ between private and public companies? What happens if you fail to comply with securities laws? How has legislation like the JOBS Act, the FAST Act changed the way in which companies offer and sell their securities?
