      • Copyright and Permissions (right to use other people’s stuff)
  • 3. Legal Update 2010
    • Do You Need a Privacy Policy?
      • A major litigation area right now
      • The two types of policy you shouldn’t have:
        • “We sell your info to whomever offers the highest price”
        • “We never sell your info to anyone, anywhere, anytime”
      • If kids are buying or stuff or posting on your blogs, you need to comply with COPPA (Child Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998)
  • 4. Tax Update 2010
    • Income Taxes
      • “Bridging the gap” legislation continues
      • The IRS is hiring . . .
      • Beginning 2011, PayPal and other online payment services are required to send you a 1099 if your gross payment volume is more than $20,000 and you have more than 200 payments during the year
      • The time to “clean up your act” is now
  • 5. Tax Update 2010
    • State/local governments are desperate for revenue, and are looking to (legally) tax Internet commerce
      • Stricter enforcement of “use tax” laws
      • Expanding “nexus” rules to include Web sellers that “directly target” in-state residents
      • Taxing “affiliates” (New York’s “Amazon Bill”)
      • Enforcing interstate agreements to collect sales tax across state lines
      • Is SSTP (streamlinedsalestax.org) going anywhere?
      • Consider a software solution (avalara.com, exactor.com, speedtax.com, taxware.com)
  • 6. Thanks, and Enjoy Vegas!
