Starting up a new company, wanted to check on the legality of it

  • I'll be selling a 6 - 8 week course of me training, Live, topics relevant to the subject of the week
  • Most topics will be based off a book designed to teach others principles
  • For the most part, I won't be quoting directly out of the book, merely teaching the concepts
  • Company name, design, my power point slides, what I'll be saying, etc. is all coming from me, only most of the topics are coming from books
  • Some topics come from previous employer training sessions they had me go through


Wouldn't this be just like a teacher (although without a license)? If giving credit is necessary, that isn't a problem. It would be hard to teach it without giving credit.
