hmmm, you have confused me there lol,

whats the difference between publishing a magazine and

owning a magazine publishing company?

My own case is this: I want to hit the market with my own

magazine, i am going to print copies and start selling to the public,

what do i need to do so i wont break a law,

what am i supposed to know before i roll out the magazine?

Thats what i want to know.

Thanks.

This case is different from TV or Radio. You need a licence for these because you're using what belongs to the public, or shall I say, the government. And that is the electromagnetic spectrum. So, they are the ones to decide your frequency and other stuffs, most especially to avoid airwaves jamming. Publishing a magazine is much easier because you're using your things to do your thing (pardon the pun). What will make it a bit complex is if you're starting a magazine publishing[b] company[/b]. In that case you'll need to register the company separately, just as you'll contact the National Library to get the ISSN for the magazine.

thanks for replying,

are you saying this is all i have to do and i can hit the market with my magazine?

Do i need to join a body?

I will just do that and roll out my magazine?

please reply Sir/Ma.

Thanks so much.

E.g, to own a TV station, you need to buy a license, does that apply too?
