So You're Starting your Own eBusiness on the Internet...

In addition to all of the usual issues which arise when you start a small business, there are special considerations for the business existing on the ethereal Internet...

  • Where is your company located? Whose law will apply? Do you want to be subject to the business laws of foreign countries? What about taxation in other states?
  • What are the ramifications of your contract with your ISP? Your software provider?
  • What if someone else has a trademark on your preferred domain name? What if someone else starts using a confusingly similar name?
  • Do you understand the terms of your agreement with your credit provider?
  • What legal requirements apply to the data which you collect from your customers?

These are just a few of the questions which arise for the budding ebusiness. If you would like to discuss any of these issues, please call us to arrange for an appointment.
