Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is competent, occasionally rousing entertainment that nonetheless left me a little bummed. Bummed that its premise — players enter a video game that favors competitors fluent in 1980s pop culture — means that top-level Hollywood talent has again been deployed to sate our apparently endless appetite for reconsuming stuff we enjoyed 30 years ago.

Why would a small business want such a structure? The primary reason is liability protection. Since corporations are separate legal … [Read more...] about Is An LLC Right For You?
