Legal Answers
134 Questions Answered

Q. Is it possible for buyers (rather than sellers) to be accused of price-fixing?
A: Absolutely yes. Fixing the price of goods or services purchased by buyers is just as per se unlawful as price fixing among sellers.
Q. Can I post content in blogs with the knowledge I acquired from courses online?
A: United States copyright law protects the "expression" of ideas, not the ideas themselves. Therefore, knowledge you have gained from online courses can be used for commercial purposes so long as you do not wholesale copy and we publish their materials and publications. You may want to check the terms and conditions so she with the courses to see if the license imposed on the additional restrictions.
Q. I signed a contract to plant trees and nothing else. Boss forced me to do other work and got injured, partly disabled.
A: You are probably covered by workers' compensation, and also appear to have a valid claim against the employer. You should consult an attorney regarding any potential lawsuit.
Q. Landlord showed and entered our home without letting us know first. Does this terminate our lease?
A: I agree with the other answer, and I add that typically lease agreements allow the owner to show a property without the tenant's consent, and often without prior notice to the tenant. I'm not aware of any specific Florida statute that would override the terms of the lease contract.
Q. Can my girlfriend live with me without being on the lease?
A: That depends on the terms of the lease. It is unlikely Tennessee has a statute covering those circumstances.
Q. I was just curious as to if you can own A law firm without being a lawyer in the state of Indiana?
A: Every state bar prohibits non-lawyers from owning a legal practice as a matter of ethics.
Q. Internet Only business - Does it need to file as a foreign business entity in Virginia?
A: To the best of my knowledge, Virgina does allow single-member LLCs. (Single member partnerships are not permitted.) Your business is conducted online but as the owner you have a physical presence in Virgina, even if just your home. You are therefore required to register as a "foreign" corporation if in operated in another state.
Q. I have a business and a lawsuit has been filed but I have not been served, can I file a cross complaint?
A: You really mean a counterclaim. But if the complaint had not been served within the applicable time limits -- 90 days for federal court and different limit In state court -- there is no risk of an adverse judgment. You should consider moving to dismiss the case for lack of prosecution if you are not served promptly.
Q. If re-sell clothing with a copyrighted name on it but that name is an Acronym, can i still get in trouble legally?
A: If they have a registered trademark in the US on the acronym for the band, selling t-shirts with that TM would be infringement. You should ask for a license since you indicate they do not sell merchandise. Whether a "reseller" or with a website disclaimer, the business you describe would not be lawful.
