No Oct 9, 2004

Not as far as I know. I work from home as a company and don't need any license. But there are zoning regulations, according to which you can't put commercial signs on your house, etc.

Generally no. Oct 10, 2004

But there are a lot of cities, and they are all different. Best to let sleeping dogs lie.
