I am trying to start a business but the name is taken on instagram and facebook, but the accounts have not posted in years, and has under 100 followers on instagram and just 2 on facebook, can that lead to trouble?

I believe the right to manufacture and/or sell such items is strictly prohibited by state law in California. You will need to contact counsel in San Diego County to fully research the legality of the manufacturing or sale of such products before you undertake such an enterprise.

It is a fairly simple procedure actually. Of course, there are several types of partnerships, and you probably should not rule out a Limited Liability Company, or even a Corporation.

It is my understanding that sidewalks in front of stores are open to the public. However, if someone is operating a business right in front of your business, and is blocking the sidewalk or simply being annoying, I think you can report it to the City or even call an officer to remove the offending...Read more »
