I have couple websites and vanity phone numbers tied to those websites. I have a S corp which is a professional services business. I want to operate the websites as part of the S corp, instead of setting up a separate companies for each of websites. For doing that do I have to register DBAs for each of the websites I am going to operate under S corp? or just mention on those websites that they are " website/vanity is operating business of --- my S corp" .What does " operating business of XXXX" mean? does it have separate entity for each operating business/website or it is just reporting to parent company for all revenue and expenses under the operating unit tab?

At my previous company, I developed the specifications for

At my previous company, I developed the specifications for an educational product and oversaw the work associated with the development of the product. The client for whom this product was being developed was the parent company of the company I was working for. Because of the parent company/subsidiary relationship, a contract was never written in regard to the work that was being done and, therefore, there is no formal language in regard to who ultimately owns the specifications.Everyone who worked on this project has either left the company or been terminated. The parent company wants to continue to develop the product, but the subsidiary lacks the expertise to do the work. Since I originally developed the specifications, the parent company has approached me and inquired about whether or not I would be interested in starting my own company to continue to develop this product for them. My question is-- would I be putting myself in a position to be sued by the subsidiary and, if so, would I be culpable for "stealing" their proprietary information? Or could I argue that the parent company owns the specifications since they paid for their development and that they would ultimately be "loaning" them to me so that I could continue to develop their product?
