      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?

    Hey Compusolver,

    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. πŸ˜€

    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.

    For more information: http://www.dvdfllc.co.jp/dvdlogo.htm

    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.
