Is there any state or federal laws before starting a web page

Is there any state or federal laws before starting a web page as a referal/public relations site with different links provided?
As long as you are not using any copyrighted images without proper permission, there are surprisingly no regulations on these types of websites. The sites can be started without any licensing or any really law interfering. The only thing you have to be cautious of besides copyrights is not to us the trademarks of any other entity besides your own on the site. You can provide links on your site to other sites for information as well, but the owners of those sites do have the right to request you remove their links from the site. Additionally, if you are sending out emails, you have to be cautious of the "CAN-SPAM" Act which prohibits unsolicited emails and you must provide a means in your emails to unsubscribe from the emails.

how do you unsubscribe to emails? and what would you suggest for employees w2 or 1099. and would you use a service fo that or have a bookeeper?
That is something the webmaster sets up for you if you are sending out the unsolicited emails (I am not a webmaster so I do not know the specifics). Typically, the employee of this type of service would be an employee (w-2) and not an independent contractor (1099) and you have to pay overtime and also pay unemployment and workers compensation to the state. You would use an accountant to provide this service and most charge reasonable monthly fees to keep up with payroll, deductions and payments for workers compensation and unemployment.
That is something I really have no way of even finding out, but you need to please go to http://ww2.justanswer.com/contact-us as they are the ones who can access that information.
