As the title presumes, has anyone on these forums shipped a game via Steam/Steamworks? If so, I have two questions.

1) If the sale item in question is an indie game developed over a long period of time (as a hobby), is the seller required to be an incorporated business?

2) Is Steam (particularly Greenlight) similar to PayPal selling in that once you get approved, all they need is Tax ID, bank account(s), proof of identity, etc and your sale item is up for purchase, or is Steam like some publishers that do a full analysis of your product and company to see if it is worth selling?

I am just wondering, not selling anything (yet). I hope this question is answerable and doesn't violate any type of NDA or something. Thank you for any information, and I hope I don't violate any type of contract.
