I browsed these articles, and there are three things that may bear
noting that seem to have been missed:

SEC rules are written, I would say, badly. Paraphrasing difficult to
understand materials is tricky, and a couple of these pages scare me.
Can I stand up in a crowd and say I am a hedge fund stock picker? One
of these pages thinks I cannot. It's called freedom of speech, and the
rich are inaccessible enough as it is in this country. And it's going
to get worse. If you want to split hairs, you can definitely get up
and say you're looking for very rich investors for a hot investment.

It's tawdry that some son of a gun can go to jail, while another with
the same intent but slightly different language gets patted on the
back at the polo field.

The SEC is trying to protect little investors, so they don't want you
talking to them, especially if you're prone to exaggeration. Makes for
good jokes and bad lawsuits. They're hoping that you will approach
mutual funds, and not individual investors. You send them your picks,
you tell them to watch you. Approaching individual investors,
especially small investors, is either very  charitable of you, because
you will be completely liable if they don't do as well as they hoped,
or you're a vicious cuss.

If you're a great stock picker, let the world keep a record. There are
a bunch of places you can do this, like mailing your pick pages to or a Yahoo Group.
