What Are Tag Along Rights?
Tag along rights or "co-sale rights" are legal agreements that guarantee minority stakeholders the right to sell their shares in the company at the same time and under the same conditions as the majority stakeholder. These rights are often used when companies are founded and capitalized because it protects investors and encourages them to buy the company's stock at an early stage. This is especially true for most angel investors, who won't even think of joining unless there are tag along rights.
Why Are Tag Along Rights Important?
Tag along rights protect minority stakeholders by giving them a certain amount of control over their own investments. If a principal stakeholder of the company liquidates its share, smaller investors won't get a bad deal. In simple words: If Investor A is selling their interest in the company, Investor B gets to sell their interest on the same terms and conditions.

If you're wondering how to start a nonprofit organization, you probably already have a good idea what a nonprofit organization is. If not, here’s a brief description. A Nonprofit organization (also known as non-business entity or NPO) is an organization that does not earn profits for its owners. Instead, the profits earned, or donations taken in, by the NPO are used to fund the programs and objectives of the NPO. Most nonprofit organizations are charitable, religious or scientific in nature. NPOs are usually tax exempt, that is, they are not required to pay taxes on moneys earned or otherwise taken in.

What Is Tortious Interference?
Tortious interference occurs when a business tries to economically harm a competitor by interfering with a contract or relationship. Breach of contract is the most common cause of interference. However, it is not the only form.
