Nevada Law question: I have a friend who is considering

Nevada Law question: I have a friend who is considering opening an LLC in Nevada. I have heard a one man LLC has scant protection in Nevada, as it can be treated as a disregarded entity and creditors can go through the LLC easily and get to the owner, but a two man LLC , even if one owns only 1% is much stronger. Is this true? Can you explain a bit how this works. Is the same true of a one man S corp or C corp. Also, if a person incurs expense to start a business, this must be amortorized over 15 years. But if they start a business on a small scale,they can expand it without amortization and deduct expenses. E.G. A person wants to stat a school. They rent school building, train the staff, buy furniture, computers, etc. etc. do the legal docs etc etc. and then open and amortize this over 15 years. Lets say this is the FAST LEARNER'S ACADEMY. Now, they could have opened up the fast learner's academy in their living room, signed up two students and collected cash, and then done the above and it would pretty much have been all Pt expnse, assuming they qualed for 79 deduction. Is this correct? Is there a limitation on it?

Copyright question here. Let's say I secure the permission

Copyright question here.Let's say I secure the permission from Peter Dinklage, the Game of Thrones star. Let's say I get permission to use his quote, only his quote that says, "I love animals, all animals. I wouldn't hurt a cat or a dog, or a chicken or a cow".Am I allowed by law to mention that he's a Game of Thrones star. Or is that crossing the line of what's allowed? Does that require permission from Game of Thrones company themselves? Or is that allowed because it's a reference?Thanks so much!!!Ron Jr.
