Though keychains featuring celebrities may be fun to collect, it is important to remember that it is not legal to sell these items without permission from the celebrity or their representatives. Doing so can infringe on copyright, trademark and right of publicity protections that are granted to...Read more »
Yes, as long as the vehicle is used for business purposes. It is highly advisable that title is taken in the name of the LLC and is covered by a commercial motor vehicle liability insurance policy rather than a personal one
I'm an investor with 14 years experience. My friends and family all want my help because I've made excellent returns but it is my understanding that I can't help them, because I'm not a financial advisor, and they could sue me if they lost money (is that even true?). So I want... Read more »

It is possible for someone to start up another coupon site. You just have to be outside of the scope of the claims. In this particular case, the four patents have very long independent claims, suggesting that one should be able to work around these claims.
I have started a club called Project: In need, and I wanted to have monthly events such as car wash, lemonade stand, bake sale, etc to raise money so that my club could make goodie bags for emergency shelter workers.
No you do not. You can even file a "domestic public organization" with the State of Texas - Secretary of State. This is pretty easy and should cost I think less than $50 dollars. People start go fund me organizations online all the time, they do no need any special recognition from the...Read more »
Most lawyers who offer advice on a question like this will ask a lot of questions to dig deeper into the details before offering advice. I have about fifteen that I go through when somebody is asking for advice on whether to form a nonprofit.
First, some background to be sure we are on the...Read more »
If I receive a notice for a hearing to NOT revoke our "limited sales, exercise and taxes" while having small outstanding sales taxes, would I need to pay them if I'm looking to dissolve my LLC regardless?

Yes, you can place your home into an LLC. I recommend that you meet with a business lawyer to assist you with this process. I also believe you should consider a revocable living trust, because you have homes in separate states. A revocable living trust will allow you to avoid probate court. With...Read more »
I have 60% of the company and want to keep the same branding. But need to have full control of the new line. Can this be as simple as putting the agreement in the operating agreement and filing for a single member LLC where I have 100% control. My main goal is to keep the branding and customer...

It's doubtful that you could assume complete control of a product line of the original LLC simply by starting a new LLC, and even taking a new business opportunity from the original LLC may be problematic. Presumably you would also need to have ownership of that product line & branding...Read more »
You need to contact a business lawyer in your area to discuss exactly what you mean by "an investment LLC" and what "stipulations" you want. It's possible that you're trying to do something you need to be licensed for, and/or for which you need to register the securities being sold.
You'll need to contact a lawyer in your area who does this. Because LLCs can be so flexible in how they're operated, and in separating the ownership from the right to run the company and the right to profits, LLC operating agreements can be either pretty simple or very complex, depending...Read more »
