  1. Kindly note error to note under 1933 Securities Act of 1933. Reference to uk case law to be rephrased.

    I note no mention of the King Report from South Africa which had an influence internationally?


    • I received following clarification from original creator of this info-graphic:

      “Dear Aishwarya
      Apologies for my late reply
      I’ve taken to comments on board – we will take a look at the 1933 Securities Act and make any changes. My apologies for the error.
      Regarding the Kings Report we do note this has had an international impact, although perhaps not to the extent of major US and UK legislation that emerged at the same time – the Companies Act, The Code and Dodd-Frank. Considering this, in addition to restricted space and a US/UK-centric readership, I’m afraid it ended up being removed.”
