https://www.kickstarter.com/blog/account...ickstarter


Quote:If your project is successfully funded, you are required to fulfill all rewards or refund any backer whose reward you do not or cannot fulfill.  A failure to do so could result in damage to your reputation or even legal action on behalf of your backers.  For more on accountability, see the FAQ.

VIOLATIONS OF THE Kickstarter’s Terms of Use
-----------------------------------------------------------
By launching a campaign on Kickstarter, CPrice also held himself out as
abiding by Kickstarter’s Terms of Use at the time of the Console OS campaign, which required
project creators to refund the consumer’s money if a reward deliverable was not provided to the
consumer.
 

VIOLATIONS OF THE FTC ACT
-------------------------------------
1. Section 5(a) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. § 45(a), prohibits “unfair or deceptive acts
or practices in or affecting commerce.”

2. Misrepresentations or deceptive omissions of material fact constitute deceptive
acts or practices prohibited by Section 5(a) of the FTC Act. 

Consumers have suffered and will continue to suffer substantial injury as a result
of CPrice's violations of the FTC Act. In addition, CPrice has been unjustly enriched as
a result of his unlawful acts or practices. Absent injunctive relief by the FTC, CPrice is
likely to continue to injure consumers, reap unjust enrichment, and harm the public interest.
