Reviewing other discussions on this forum, it seems this topic has been addressed in a number of conversations. I know some CUs have taken to LLC incorporation as means of avoiding being classed and liable as general partnerships.
As I understand it, there is currently little to no legal merit in the US law system, to argue that a DAO itself does not constitute some form of unincorporated partnership. This means, there is a currently slim, but still real chance, that token holders can be held jointly and severally liable In the case of litigation, which may legally endanger not just on chain assets, but their off chain personal assets as well. I am concerned that this could become major problem down the road for many DAOs, especially their deanonymized members, if any sufficiently resourced and blockchain saavy organization takes the route of litigation.
I was wondering if there has been any conclusive settlement or discussion on a course of action around minimizing GPL risks for US MKR holders, especially as the MKR foundation, which previously held most of the attention for any legal attack, is set to dissolve soon. I get that there is little legal framework or case law around the topic, but that might be all the more reason to be proactive about engaging with legal organizations and policy makers (if this isn’t already happening around the topic).
