Welcome to our LegalSIG

Highly Recommended
Dealmaking in Hollywood is full of ideas collaborating networks need to consider.
Mark Litwak's Dealmaking in the Film Industry is highly recommended.

Its focus on the Hollywood film industry and how contracts are negotiated among entrepreneurs gathered for a temporary project gives us a mature model to study at Sohodojo.

LegalSIG members exploring how elastic webs of entrepreneurial free agents and nanocorps can openly collaborate on dejobbed business ventures, should read this book to kick start their thinking.

What are the legal structures that need to be developed for the nanocorp business model? How do 'Portfolio People' share responsibilities and benefits in their networks of dejobbed businesses with many stakeholders collaborating on an agenda? And what are the tax implications?

For legal insights we can turn to the Hollywood movie industry as a mature 'networkization' model to study. It's a jumping off place, not a "solution" space. Open Community Businesses and other dejobbed business models are very likely to need unique legal frameworks. Precedents must be established to give 'Small is Good' equal footing in the New Economy.
