L.L.me?

leave a comment »

Interesting piece in the NYT makes me wonder if every freelance journalist should establish an L.L.P.

“In the U.S., certain kinds of personal information aren’t treated like property at all. It’s very difficult to sue someone for misuse of personal information. And even if you do, they can never give you back your mailing address, your Social Security number or your DNA, for that matter.”

The piece goes on to explain that it is easy to sue someone for misuse of corporate information … hence, L.L.P.

The obvious question: How do you do it?
