1. Obtain the very best legal counsel you can possibly afford.

I have a tentative appointment next week to meet an attorney who specializes in intellectual property matters with a large firm in Minneapolis. I got a reference and introduction from a friend who has 30 years experience working in the Twin Cities legal community.

You will need legal advice at some point. It's a good idea to start off with the best you can afford. Lawyers usually don't charge for an initial consultation, and they'll be able to give you a pretty good idea of the kind of legal advice you'll require, and an estimate as to what it will cost you to get started. You can then incorporate these costs into your business plan.

SB (When I spoke with the attorney on the phone yesterday we both laughed a lot, which is a good sign.)
