Should we read much into the fact that they aren't accepting bitcoin as a payment option?  haha

Anyone registering for this?  I'm very intrigued, but I'm also very busy at work, so 1 hour of my time on a Wednesday in the middle of the afternoon as well as $40 to find out if my $1,500 worth of bitcoin are legal doesn't seem worth it right now.

My mining and trading operations are both in the red for now, so taking them $40 further in the whole (as I would consider this an expense) doesn't make sense yet.

I'm gonna see if I have a lawyer friend who needs some CLE which I'm assuming stands for Continuing Legal Education?

I have continuing ed requirements as an actuary, so I'm guessing this is lawyer continuing ed.

Sorry for the thread revival but I feel this webinar deserves some kudos.

You can watch it for free if you register with lawline which is very easy. It also follows a dialog format between the host and the speaker so could really be helpful for folks who like this format.
