Legal Answers
25 Questions Answered
Q. What's the law that include right-of-action related to corporate governance agreements?
A: In the State of New York business owners, shareholders, members LLC, may file lawsuits related to breach of contract controversies in state court. For purposes of these controversies the applicable law is the New York General Business Law as well as the specific rule applicable to fiduciaries depending on the type of entity involved in the controversy.
Q. I have a DBA in NYC (advertising, marketing agency), and want to sell one of our services from a website for just that
A: Let's start by saying this, ideas are not protected under the law. Secondly, branding is a very broad concept, therefore, you may need to elaborate on that. Finally, a logo may be protected under copyright or trademark law. If you have not registered the logo, it could be appropriated by someone else. Additionally, having a DBA registration only protects you from certain sanctions on the local level and informs the public what you use to do business but it does not shield you against commercial name appropriation by another. THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE.
Q. I am creating a tv show blog, may I upload trailers of the show and take pictures of it and post them on my blog?
A: As long as you are uploading materials that are entirely yours, this means, that all pictures, sounds, and recordings are your creation, then, you should be fine. However, if any of those materials are protected by copyright and owned by someone else, it could be copyright infringement.
