Websites for lawyers and law firms are subject to a number of ethical rules, so they can appear a bit odd when you visit. The following information helps explain how best to view and use this website.
You will find posts and pages on this site with textual and video content discussing various subjects such as starting an Internet business in California that are relevant to entrepreneurs. My intention is for the information on the site to be educational in nature. The information is not intended as specific advice for your situation. You will make a significant mistake if you try to use it in such a manner. I do not update posts on the site. Posts reflect current law only as of the date of publication!
Please understand I write most of the posts on this site from the perspective of a California lawyer interpreting California laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act. The law in your state is most likely different, so you should contact a firm in your state to obtain advice pertinent to your jurisdiction. Occasionally, I will discuss a non-California topic such as a United States federal law like the DMCA or a regulation overseas such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

Hmm…I wonder if my mug would look good on the side of a bus?
