    Hey Everyone,

    I want to launch my programs on a website that will be created by me.
    I have my own "Name", which I would like to start the company as.
    For example: "Microsoft".

    I want to release my applications for free, however, when I get more hits, I want to

    release other kind of applications for a fee.
    For example -> Application Home Edition = Free, Application Pro Edition = $19.99

    I want to license my programs from being disassembled, copied too, and so on... Just

    general protection license.

    For my website, I want to license that also.

    I will probably generate income from advertisements, and in the future by other apps.

    I wont have my own office and I'll be programming from home only.

    Anyone know what are the License/Materials I would need ? I kind of have an idea but not

    too sure. I was thinking of something like "LTD", or perhaps even Umbrella ?

    Also, Would I need a business license ?

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    For license and copyright concern, it is advise to seek for legal advise. To make the license work, it require few draft. To further protect the product and services, you may consider file a trademark and pattern technologies.

    For free application, you can try participate open source project, that is one of the easier way to get user response.
