The website I would be buying is the same words just moved around. And the merchandise would potentially be clothing designed to look similar to the original brand’s clothing but not the same. Or would it be legal to offer this new and similar domain to the owner of the original for a price?

An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. In terms of hours, COVID-19 has resulted in many entities having greater leeway in reducing hours or effecting closures at their discretion.

Last year my husband signed a 2 year painting contract with a possible 2 more years of work with a retirement facility. According to my husband in the contract it states if they choose to let him go they need to give him 3 months notice. As of now we can't find the contract, but he believes... Read more »
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Anyone can bring a lawsuit. But it would be useful to have the contract beforehand. A reputable attorney would want to see the contract to determine if there was a breach, and to also make certain there...Read more »
We're making a show, and for the show we need art, we have a very talented artist that wants to help us but the problem is they are underage. We're wondering is it possible to use the art from the minor for commercial use if we bought it as a commission? If not, would we have to end up... Read more »
When you say "use" the art, what do you mean? You are able to resell a painting, like you could resell a book. However, buying the item does not give you rights in the copyright associated with the work.
Because a minor is involved, you need to tread carefully. Minors are not...Read more »
I recently started a company with around $80K of my own money as a 65% partner. The partner of 25% bought things in the company name and my personal name without my approval saying she paid for these only to find out months later they haven't been paid for and they're in my name. I have... Read more »

He needs me to be the 1% partner so he could register a business in US since I am a resident and soon would be a citizen. I am doing MBA at Kelley School of Business and a have hefty... Read more »
It depends on the corporate structure and jurisdiction. It'll also depend on your other income. You'll most likely have additional reporting requirements personally. You're best off finding a tax expert to advise you on this.
Hiring offer included base salary plus sales commission for working at a retail store. After one year I was asked to assume all the same duties for two stores. Employer reduced my total commission at each store because "it gives you a disproportionate amount of total commission". My... Read more »
Without seeing your entire employment contract I would think not; however, both the rate of pay and the amount of commission should be included--and is so, this change has violated the contract. So, if you still want to work there I advise you to object to the lowering of your remuneration and...Read more »
In the past, it would have been no big deal. However, some communities and associations have rules prohibiting flyers, brochures, or similar materials. It could be worthwhile to confirm there are no local rules against it. Good luck
I have the receipt from the time I started living here. I believe they are messing with the books. My receipt says taxes was off but I'm paying the same price plus 25 dollars more. The owner raised the rent during the race. I do not know what avenues to take to get my money or how to start the... Read more »
If you have a written contract covering your extended stay both you and the hotel are bound by the terms of the written contract. And if the contract was for 30 days the hotel can raise your room rate on day 31 going forward. Why? Because under most state laws hotels can change their room rates at...Read more »
I already have a signed contract from a buyer to purchase my home in Michigan. I can understand them requiring the purchaser of their home to have a local lender or whatever they want because it is their home. It doesn't seem to me like they have the right to infringe on my home sale.

It depends on the documents themselves. A Non-Disclosure agreement is usually binding, except in cases where the law would not allow it (such as in mandatory reporting cases, covering up a crime, criminal conspiracy, etc..).

I am not an Indiana Attorney, but generally anybody can prepare a financial statement for their business. Where you would need the licensing is if you were preparing financial statements for a publicly traded company or you were Auditing those financial statements.
Yes. If you entered into a contract with a salesman who was employed or representing the business at the time you entered into the contract, the salesman can bind the company he or she represented at the time.
There may be other considerations, but a company cannot get out of a contract...Read more »
