When people say “Superfund,” I don’t think purchases of “run of the mill” commercial real estate come to mind (as often as they maybe should). Prior to becoming a lawyer, the word “Superfund” evoked images of Mad Max-esque chemical spill disasters, rampant white collar crime and greedy capitalism in my mind – the purchase of an office park, or future nature preserve, by an average person who isn’t DuPont? No. This post is about the…
We have written in the past about the control that a copyright owner has over the subject of his or her copyright. However, it seems some people aren’t paying attention to the message that they can’t simply use (and especially charge money for) other people’s works without permission. In this case linked to above, there is some controversy about Disney charging an elementary school’s PTA $250.00 to show the 2019 version of The Lion King…

Spoiler alert everyone – I’m in Europe right now. Special thanks to my awesome business partners, Erin Ogden and Jeff Glazer, for making this trip possible. As all business owners know, finding time to vacation is tough, especially if you don’t have partners to lean on. As a way of background before we get started – I hate flying. I hate TSA body scanners even more – and with the proliferation of facial recognition technology…

OK, you have gone through all of the questions that Gary set out for you, but now’s the toughest one of all: Do you have the support network at home for this? Start-ups are not for the faint of heart. You will be putting in hours of work – possibly for little or no pay at first. Definitely a lot of time and effort will be put forth. That time, effort, and often, money, could…

Two months ago, the FDA disclosed that they recently warned 15 companies producing andor selling CBD that their actions in marketing the products were contrary to Federal Law. We were just gearing up for the holidays, so everyone at OG+S didn’t want to sour the mood, but now that we’re halfway though January, this development is worth discussing. What is the FDA’s beef?: We’ve discussed this issue before, so I won’t go into great detail,…

I joked last time that I was having an existential crisis about my own value by discussing how much I should pay myself when starting a business, but this week’s post kicks it into high gear as we ask: Are you the right person to start this business? Well, now, these questions are not getting any easier. And, this one definitely leads to a lot more questions that I have to answer. For one, what…
