349B Securities RegulationPlaintiff’s payment to a private, members-only hunting preserve was for annual membership dues, which were required by the corporate by-laws and afforded plaintiff access to and use of the hunting preserve and related facilities, and thus payment was not for a “security” within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act; plaintiff’s payment was not motivated solely by the prospects of a return on his investment.
