0:19 and similar types of protections. You might just want to choose whatever is local for you.
0:25 There are sometimes, especially if you are looking to get venture capital and participate in some of the US markets that you might want to have
0:33 a company that is set up and registered in the United States, with a US bank account that can accept credit card payments and things like that.
