I recently coded a fairly succesful GPT site and got pushed out of it by my 'partner'. Totally my fault for not covering myself, but I plan on relaunching it with a new marketing partner. Since I've been on the wrong end of the stick on this before, I want to make sure everything goes right this time. My largest concern is how to do the agreement or contract with a partner in such a way that if one of the partners decides to slack off or something, they aren't just being carried by the other. Another concern is that I've put a LOT of time into the code of this site, and I would hate to be unprotected and have a partner sell the code or something afterward. I really have no idea how to implement this. I found one agreement for a more brick and mortar setting here: Code: http://www.smallbusinessnotes.com/managing-your-business/sample-partnership-agreement.html Although the separation involves dissolving the company, which I would hate to do just because it turns out my partner decided to be an ass-hat. There's also nothing mentioned for the resell of or rights to the code after the dissolve. I'm just spit-balling here, looking for any sort of pre-written agreements or general advice on doing a JV like this that the fine folks here may have. Also, I don't want the thread to go on the wrong track here, everything above is my main focus but I would like any sort of tax advice for micro-transaction income and micro-payout sites like this, if anyone has experience in keeping records or anything for that.
