Subd. 2.Communications; untrue or omitted material facts.

No person may offer or sell a franchise in this state by means of any written or oral communication which includes an untrue statement of a material fact or which omits to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements made, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.

Subd. 3.Misrepresentations related to registration and filing.

No person may represent or cause to be represented to any prospective purchaser of a franchise that the filing of any document under sections 80C.01 to 80C.22 or the registration or exemption from registration of a franchise constitutes a finding by the commissioner that any document filed under sections 80C.01 to 80C.22 is true, complete, and not misleading, or that the commissioner has passed in any way upon the merits of any franchise, and no person may represent that a franchise is registered or exempted from registration when in fact, such is not the case.
