The sales person told them that since they are on social security the services with Claro TV+ in Puerto Rico was free for them. They also signed a document which tied them into a 24 month contract which they were not aware of. Moreover, they went without the TV service for 15 days after signing the... Read more »
Unfortunately, this is a common practice: a salesperson saying whatever he/she can to close a sale. Leonine contracts such as this also makes it extremely difficult for a persona to wiggle out of, under normal circumstances. Also, these types of contracts unilaterally increase monthly payments each...Read more »

No. See O.C.G.A. section 16-11-62. While Georgia is a one-party state, requiring the consent of only one party to a telephone conversation to record that conversation, Georgia requires the consent of all parties to record a video chat (i.e. FaceTime) in a "private place and out of public...Read more »
This is not an easy question to answer. Presenting evidence to court is something that you learn in law school and through the practice of law. There are different types of evidence and different ways to present it. May I suggest, for a starting point, that you review the Ohio Rules of Evidence....Read more »

If you're looking for criminal charges, contact the police. If you're looking for civil damages, they problem will be what damage you've sustained? Did they just record the conversation for their own purposes? Have they posted it on a blog or something and it's affected your business?
I live in Defiance county, in a township outside of the city limits. A business placed a sign near the road, but still on my property, advertising their services in an attempt to get customers. I don't want my property used for advertising, but do I personally have a right to remove and... Read more »
Contact the business and tell them to remove the sign. If they don't, use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local attorney to review the situation and contact them on your behalf, or advise you of your options.
A mental health practice in Colorado must comply with Colo. Rev. Stat. § 12-245-216 (some older forms will have the old code section as § 12-43-214, but that is no longer the current law). The code section requires a mental health care provider to give each patient a form detailing the...Read more »
Child is underage and I am the guardian/parent. Sent email requesting it and they claim they can't due to some copyright excuse. I've never heard of this from other requests I've made of other news outlets.
Whether they must give you a copy would depend on the terms of the agreement you made with them when you gave them permission to make a video using your child. They own the copyright in the video recording, but can only use it and broadcast it within the terms of your permission and agreement to...Read more »
If this involves something with an estate or will, you might have better chances of a reply in the Probate or Estate Planning categories under New York.

The neighboring apartment building the one directly beside mine. As I was doing so a couple of the people over there came out cussing me trying to fight me saying I was trespassing.

Technically it could be considered criminal trespass in the third degree if there are clear signs that this is private property or that you are in a housing development or section 8. If you were not charged by the police you likely don’t have anything to worry about.
I plan on Live feeding the Mummers Day Parade in Pennsylvania to my Youtube channel. The marching bands play music and there is other background music in the parade. Would those music sources be considered "fair use" for News Reporting of the event?
This is not a simple question and it may not be cost-effective to retain counsel. But you need to play it safe and make sure you have written consent to record. Fair use is a complex issue. Your channel is for profit, and unless you have the proper corporate entity for your YouTube channel, you...Read more »

If anything, this would be a civil matter. A cop will not get involved in this capacity. If she feels her claim is strong enough, she will sue you. Until then just ignore it and or block her number if she continues to harass you.
