Reasons entrepreneurs get in trouble is trademarks and copyright. Even small businesses must abide by the laws although the market is not big not many realize that if a product has been trademarked or copyright laws are in place, they cannot sell the product or manufacture it without proper approval. Businesses also get in trouble because they mix personal finances and business finances. Once the finances are mixed, they are treated as one and once the law is involved the business will come first. If the business fails and has been ordered to pay back or the assets are frozen then the individual fails and personal assets are frozen.
