Q. business paid half for work i had contract for 2 years ago they are coming back and wanting that money back
A: As my colleague has stated, it would depend on what the contract that you signed actually says. Generally there's a clause or two about who takes responsibility for the project being put on hold, or how to handle the contract if something happens, (like the "head guy dying"). If there isn't anything in the contract that directs this circumstance, you would likely want to get a lawyer to view the contract, and any other communication over the past 2 years that may have "modified" the contract.
Q. Would a website with a brand name in its domain infringe if it linked to sites offering services similar to that brand?
A: Absolutely it would infringe, as it would be substantially similar and be in direct competition to google's protected trademark.
Q. Can my landlord charge me per night for having a guest stay in my unit for a week?
A: If you signed a lease that says you would be charged, then you were aware of the "potential" fees. It also sounds like you breached the lease agreement by letting your friends stay more than the allotted "2 days" per month, and sounds like you further operated in bad faith by not disclosing these facts to your landlord when they occurred. So you are likely responsible for the fees. To your defense, the facts don't provide the specific wording of the lease agreement to know whether it is worded "per guest", or "per night". Meaning, its unclear whether the landlord has a right to charge per guest, or whether multiple guests should still count as 1 night. You do also claim the word of mouth was that it wouldn't be enforced. However, that is not written into the lease, and therefore wouldn't likely be enforceable by you. You can't even bring it in due to a legal concept called the "Parole Evidence Rule", and is basically giving the landlord the freedom to charge you if they decide to. Depending on the specifics of the lease agreement and full situation, you may be able to fight for part of the fee not being valid. However, it's likely not enough to take to court. I would suggest trying to negotiate with the landlord, respectfully, and then consult an attorney to provide specifics and discuss options.
