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,

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.
