I'm not saying that I want SOPA to pass, or even that I think it will pass anytime soon. Let's not turn this into a debate on SOPA.
What I want this to be is a creative thinking exercise. Like I said in another thread, there are things that happen that you can't control. Some of these things will affect your business.
There is nothing that can happen to your business that is insurmountable.
That doesn't mean that it will be easy or that you may not have to start all the way from the foundations again, but you can overcome anything that happens to your business (aside from something debilitating, of course, such as a serious health issue or something of that nature).
So let's say that some version of SOPA passes.
What can you do to help your business survive?
Finding two local businesses that could work together for a mutually beneficial result - and getting a fee to do so.
Good old-fashioned face-to-face meetings or snail mail - works for me.
Like I said, I'm hoping that this thread will get some great responses and get people thinking about how they can have a contingency plan in case things don't go well.
What would YOU do?
