Four deadly legal mistakes startups make

A reader asks: My co-founders and I are working on a cool new site, and we’ll be ready to launch in a few weeks. I’ve been reading a lot on the web about incorporation and other legal stuff. We have no money, so we’re going to do the legal ourselves. Assuming we might mess something up, are there any mistakes that can’t be fixed down the road? We know that once we get money in we can clean things up, but we’re worried about mistakes that just can’t be fixed. (And please don’t tell us to hire a lawyer.)
