Letter Type B:
Attn: Elizabeth M. Murphy
Re: Letter in support of EquityNet’s response to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s request for comments regarding File Number S7-09-13; Securities and Exchange Commission call for comments pertaining to 17 CFR 200, 227, 232, 239, 240 and 249.
Dear Elizabeth M. Murphy:
After a careful and thorough review of EquityNet’s response to the Security and Exchange Commission’s request for comments regarding the above referenced matter, I firmly believe their letter not only raises valid issues for your consideration, but that the solution provided by EquityNet to modify the text in § 227.402(b)(3)(ii) to read:
Except in the instance of peer review and feedback generated by users subject to § 227.402(b)(4), search and sort functionally may not be based on subjective criteria such as, among other things, the advisability of investing in the issuer or its offering, or an opinion of any characteristic of the issuer, its business plan, its key management or risks associated with an investment, generated exclusively by the portal.
is beyond reproach. I therefore ask that you adopt the modified text as rule.
