I was given an answer to a similar question last night,

I was given an answer to a similar question last night, however it may have lacked some of the following details and would like this question answered now that I have provided perhaps a more organized background for the consideration of my question. I am forming an LLC for an online consulting business, as well as developing a couple additional websites for the purpose of affiliate marketing. These additional websites ultimately tie into the consulting. The main site will be a blog, forum, and appointment generator. Revenue will come from any advertising that may be associated to the site once it gains traffic and through contracted consulting. I am building a website to list businesses for sale, and as a affiliate lead generating site for business brokers. Revenue will come from advertising space paid by business owners, and pay per lead affilates. I will have the site linked to the consulting site where I plan to look for opportunities to add value to those businesses by consulting on operations and marketing strategies. The other site will be an affiliate loan leads generator. This site will also be linked to the other sites as it will be gathering information as leads for business loan institutes. I currently live in South Carolina. I have been planning my business strategies for some time, however not until I made the decision to leave my salary position and give my full focus on my business did I plan, or research much on the time of expedition of the LLC as well as what benefits may be available forming in another state. I have looked into Nevada as it appears to have all the protections I would want in a llc, they also offer the series in the llc. I plan on all sites to operate under one llc, and given my interpretation of the series see that as an opportunity to protect each site individually under the operating LLC Name. Is my interpretation correct? Also given I did not research the expedition of South Carolina llc formation, which is 35 days/25 if rushed, the nevada expedition can be done as fast as 2 hours for a fee with normal processing 6-7 days and for an additional $50 it can be done in two. The state filing fee is less than South Carolina as well. The expedition process is important to me, as I wish to set up and fund a business account asap, and want to launch everything under the protection of an llc. I have some cushion financially, but it is limited. All this being said I will be a single owner for this formation. The only potential change I can for see in the next year would to bring in a profit sharing partner. I plan to outsource any work to freelancers rather than have employees for now. Given the information I provided is forming in Nevada a good consideration?

I have a small accounting practice in West Los Angeles. I

I have a small accounting practice in West Los Angeles. I need to increase my client base and basically there were couple of ungrateful tax clients in past about few years ago, that wanted me to provide them free service for them which I declined and I requested payment for the additional work. They have gone on Yelp and posted very untruthful facts about my services and gave a bad rating on my services that I provided them. I responded to their false accusation on the site and also requested my other clients to post a review about my services and asked them to express their view and opinion about my services. Few of them wrote up very good reviews about their experiences with my services. However, for some strange reason, all those reviews were taken down from yelp and now only these not favorite reviews are being seen by the potential clients. I called customer representative of Yelp and they said these other good reviews did not make reviews for others in yelp and thereby they have taken them down. In addition, I wanted to advertise with Yelp and they told me that since I have these couple of bad reviews which have given me 1 star, my advertisement with them would not be effective and they are not even willing to take me as a client. Is there any remedy for this situation.

I work at a college in California. I am attempting to present to our Faculty Senate why we should not allow "For profit colleges" to advertise on our kiosks where our newspapers are distributed, because many of us are wary of the for profit model of education. (Companies can pay to rent the space to advertise on the kiosks.)However, someone has raised the possibility that it might be illegal to discriminate in who we allow to advertise on our kiosks - ie, we can't be selective, as long as what they are advertising isn't illegal.I would like to know specifically if it is legal or not, and whatever relevant statutes may apply, so that I can present the best case possible to our Faculty Senate.

I formed an unofficial business partnership with someone to

I formed an unofficial business partnership with someone to develop a tourism phone app. I came up with the idea originally, and approached him to do the programming. We never signed a contract and I never agreed to pay him, the long-term goal was to go in 50/50 once the app was finished and we started making money from advertisers. I did all of the research, writing, voice recordings, and pictures for the tour spots within the app. My partner designed the company logo and designed the app itself, uploading my written information, photos, and audio files. He put some money in on his end for hosting the app online, I put some money in one mine for business cards and flyers to market the app. The app the my partner came up with does not function properly and is not marketable. He said that he has to start from scratch to redesign the app. It has taken to long, so I want to dissolve our unofficial partnership and find someone else to design the app with. I know that I do not owe him monitary copensation, as we never had a contract. I plan on moving forward without uing the logo that he designed, any of the elements in his app design. I came up with the company name, and plan on using a similar word spelled differently. Is there any possible way he can turn around and sue me?

I'm having a hard time registering a Trade Name in Oklahoma.

I'm having a hard time registering a Trade Name in Oklahoma. The trade name we want to use is "Muskogee Tree" but apparently the state of Oklahoma considers it a conflict with the name "Trees Inc" because the state is ignoring the geographical location at the beginning of our DBA name. My question is - if I registered "Muskogee Tree Trimming and Removals" as the official DBA name, put that on our trucks and shirts, but also used "Muskogee Tree" for short on some items, or in conversation with customers - or perhaps had the customers make checks out to "Muskogee Tree" (so long as my bank would accept them) would I be breaking any laws or on shaky legal ground with the state?
