what would you do if :
1) A company allegedly involved in million-dollars fraud charges approaches your company to do up their corporate / product websites?
2) Host the website for a year after development completion (this is advertised on our website as a freebie for all new customers)
Ethics aside, can someone advise on the legal implications of a developer/host in this situation. Note that there will NOT be illegal content or functions on the website. That is, the website is perfectly legit corporate site.
The said company is currently fighting off those accounting fraud allegations (for many months), which are reported on newspapers and online news sites but nothing is confirmed up till now.
So, should we go ahead and build + host their site? Or should we say .. go somewhere else.
And also, what if those fraudulent accounting charges are confirmed in future, are we obligated by law to shut down the site immediately?
Thanks in advance!
