Hello everyone, thanks for listening.
I am a foreign national, UK born, based in Asia. I would like to produce my own books here in Asia, import them into the USA and sell strictly online to US buyers.
Do I need to register myself as a business to both import the books and sell them? Are there other legal requirements I must consider?
The books are my own IP, so this is not a problem.
