I just got thrown for a loop. I was talking to another video guy about starting my new business. He asked me if I had obtained a license for selling DVD’s. I had never heard of such a thing. What does anyone here know about it?

Thank you for the reply. I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to get any takers.
While I waited for a reply I did a little E-digging. What do you make of this link? It’s in business/legaleese, so it doesn’t take long for my eyes to gloss over. It sounds like somebody thinks I owe them something if I sell DVD’s.
As for your other directions, thanks, sort of. That all is the part of doing business has kept me from doing business on my own in the past. I am bureaucratically challenged.
Oh. Your check is in the mail. 😀

I don’t think that you are answering the correct question. Licensing has nothing to do with taxes.
Yes, you need a license to put the DVD logo on your replicated discs. No license, no logo. The Phillips and DVD6C licensing is for equipment and disc manufacturers.

The good news is, no logo, no license. You can replicate your discs all you want without the DVD logo. If you go through a replicator service, they probably are licensed to put the logo on your discs.
