Legal Question

Asked on: 11/30/11, 2:45 pm

I would like to start an Internet site that lists all of the licensed plumbers in the state of California.

Where can I find legal rules on listing professionals on a website? Do I need their permission to list them?

Thanks for you question. If the information is publicly available, then there would be no restriction. Of course, posting non-public information such as personal information about the professional would raise issues. On the other end of this issue is what liability you are assuming from the consumer if they use your website to engage the professional and a dispute arises. Tread carefully if you plan on endorsing in any way these professionals.

If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
