Cable industry merger seeking approval from overburdened FCC

New York business owners may be interested in the regulatory issues that two corporations are dealing with in their attempt to merge. The leader of one of the companies remains positive, however, that the government agency charged with approving the merger will do so by the end of 2014.

Intellectual property protection

When starting a business in New York, it is a good time to make sure that the company's intellectual property is protected. The best way to do that is to make sure that any slogans, logos or other marks related to the brand are trademarked. This makes it impossible for other companies to use that company's name, its slogan or its logo without express written permission.

New York residents may be interested in a new study looking at the overall 'business climate" of 38 different states. Although it is easy to rank which states have the lowest or the highest taxes, it takes first-hand experience to decide which states make a small business owner's life easier. New data compiled by Thumbtack and the Kauffman Foundation has found that a state's low tax rate may not be the most important thing new entrepreneurs are looking for.

Business taxes in New York
