General members should not be particularly concerned about this, but since it is another landmark, I thought I should announce it.

As of a few days ago, Opera Lively is a fully licensed and registered business with all permits issued by City, County, State, and Federal Government in the United States. Securing all this was hard work, and I'm glad that it is complete (freeing a bit more of my time to work on contacts, public relations, and eventually to being back at generating operatic content - meanwhile our excellent team and members continue to generate prime content).

This is important for our legitimacy (it reassures future partners), legal status, protection of the brand name, and respect for existing laws (e.g., copyright laws).

Stick around, members, because we're building something big here, and the more we grow and acquire more status and clout, the more the members will benefit from a... lively online opera experience.

Sorry Winnetou, business is business
