Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
A spreadsheet that tracks changes in Kickstarter's Guidelines, Rules, Prohibited Items and Terms and Conditions, over time.
Please note that the rows for 3 December 2010 and 17 July 2019 are reliable. All other rows should be checked for completeness.
I created this data because I was interested in seeing how much Kickstarter had changed their rules around campaigns and rewards since launching. 3 December 2010 was the first archived version that I could find that didn't contain the words 'Beta' or 'by invitation'. 17 July 2019 was the date of collection of the data.
This was collected as part of a chapter about legal risk in crowdfunding.
