I'm pretty impressed with this idea, but I was wondering... Do you think Zaplings would offer some sort of legal advice/feedback to help entrepreneurs navigate the complex legal consequences of starting their business or startup? I guess I'm concerned with things like intellectual property rights, tax implications, business incorporation/organization questions, financial regulations or restrictions... there are a lot of things that entrepreneurs will need to hammer out before they can get moving. At least... they ought to hammer these things out to prevent disputes or other problems down the road.

I guess my question is, do you think Zaplings would have a legal help department or "tool" built right in? Or do you think it would be better for attorneys to join Zaplings and offer their services much like Kathleen (the graphic designer below) would offer up her graphic design expertise to an entrepreneur in need?
