Thank you for your follow-up.I was asking about your income because certain types of business structures are more favorable for tax purposes based on levels of income. In addition certain business entities like the S-Corp cannot be sold or bought by other entities, if that is something you wanted to pursue at some point. Since I have no idea what income basis you wish to have but you are thinking of selling this at some point, an LLC is the better all-around choice.At this time there is no need to register differently later, just in your articles of incorporation define all possible future income streams or types of work your company will pursue. No need to be specific, the way you described it in your question here is sufficient.The last question you posted is very general in nature and tough to answer because of it. You can only post true information about other entities as otherwise it may open you up to defamation claims. Likewise using logos or names without permission for commercial purposes when not consented to is not permitted. For example, linking to a third-party story about your competitor experiencing trouble on your site is likely permitted but trashing the competitor would likely be grounds to a suit.Good luck.
