I'm going to have to call BS on that one.  Sarbanes-Oxley has absolutely
nothing to do with whom you can do legitimate business.  That law was
created because some large companies had set up shell corporations to hide
debt in to make their balance sheets look better.  The law was designed to
reform accounting practices by making corporate officers personally
responsible for the accuracy of accounting records and financial reports.
