My advice is contact an actual lawyer in the state your LLC will be 
registered.  They can help you way more than PmWiki users/developers ever 
could.  Nothing against this group, they're great.  It's just that for 
legal advice it's best to get it from a lawyer, that way if get bad advice 
you have legal avenues.
