 7-11-505.  Unlawful representations concerning licensing, registration, or exemption.

(a) Neither the fact that a notice filing or an application for licensing or a registration statement has been filed under this chapter nor the fact that a person is licensed or a security is registered under this chapter constitutes a finding by the director that a document filed under this chapter is true, complete, and not misleading. Neither of those facts nor the fact that an exemption or exception is available for a security or a transaction means that the director has passed upon the merits or qualifications of, or recommended or given approval to, a person, security, or transaction.

(b) No person may make, or cause to be made, to a purchaser, customer, or client a representation inconsistent with subsection (a) of this section.
