JGM, Thanks for the reply - this clarified some things. However, what about the bit about the having a company bank account. I would rather not go to the bother of opening a new account at this stage as there will be no money coming in. So can I pay for any expenses personally and transfer ownership to the company? E.g. if I pay for domain registration myself, how to I prove that the domain registration is in the name of the company and not me personally?
You mentioned 'formal assignation of the copyright' is this to help if others steal my data (I dont think this will matter for me) or is this also part of giving me protection from being sued / proving the website is owned by the company and not me personally?
