    Hello, it has been some time.
    I got a server and a domain name but what legal stuff do I need to do. I know it’s a big topic but how do I start up officially? I guess I need a copyright for any photos and code how about the name and anything else. Any help, even another web site. Thanks

    What are you starting, a web design business or something?

    The copyright is pretty much implicit, but put a notice at the bottom of the site.

    If you want to do business with a created name (for example Hot Web Design) and if you want to be able to advertise it in any print medium legally you would need to get a DBA (Doing Business As). This is the policy in the US anyway. You'd need to check into that yourself, and it costs money. Without this people cannot make checks with the order paid to your company name, you will not be able to advertise in phone books, newspapers, etc.

    If you intend on using your own name for the company title the above is not needed.

    That's the official way to do it. I don't know how many people know or really care about it, but it seems important enough.

    I don't know much about any other legalities, sorry.

    I think that the DBA is one of the things that I was looking for and I think for that all I need is to go to the government center right up the street. Thanks, o ya the web site is for Wolfsburg edition Volkswagen’s here is my site… wolfsburgeditionregistry.com

    Are you going to be selling stuff? Or is it just a club? If not selling, the DBA may not be needed (unless as I said you plan on advertising in the newspaper and stuff).

    Just checking.

    Well kind of, there will be a $5 fee to join and you get a sticker when you join so in order to set up a bank account I am guessing that I will need the DBA. There might also be some advertising in magazines sometime but I think it would be a good idea to get the DBA to get the bank account.
