This week in small business with Ombudsman Kate Carnell #1

The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman talks this week about online sales, government procurement and protecting intellectual property online.

Online sales: "People are worried about Amazon (coming to Australia) but it can be a positive for small business."

Government procurement: "If the Federal Government is paying a prime contractor in 30 days ... everyone in the supply chain should be paid in 30 days as well."

Intellectual property: "It can be stolen easily by unscrupulous international companies."
