With the current economic climate, knowledge of legal rights and legal resources is becoming more important to individuals, business owners, and our community in general.  Our economy is impacting individuals who are now facing bankruptcy, foreclosure, buyouts, and even divorce.  Yet, these uncertain times can also bring about positive change, including a growing number of entrepreneurs starting businesses.    There are of course many legal issues involved with starting a business, including protecting the intellectual property involved in that business.
