For example, I would like to name a non-profit I am creating, Mockingjay Medical

Given the connection of that name with the Hunger Games series, I'd be extremely cautious. Are you sure it's even a good business idea? In any event, you should consult with an intellectual property lawyer before using it in a business name.
My company's name is INK Therapy, or "IT"
AND the slogan is,"Sit down and deal with IT"
I'm trying to find out if I can use PennyWise's image???

Basically no, as you would presumably infringe on someone's copyright and also likely a trademark.
I try to make it simple: If you are trying to make money off of someone else's work, there is likely a problem.
Most companies have a couple different licenses under the same business(dba/LLC). If there are bank accounts in other states owned by the corporate officers and also in the same name of the business being sued can the out of state account be attached also.
Now the business in the other... Read more »

Yes. Once a judgment is granted against a corporation, it may be enforce against the corporation snd assets located anywhere within the United States.
I had a business associate who was going to be a partner rip me off for a lot of money and inventory. We started a new joint bank account together at banner bank. What I did not know was he was friends with the assistant manager of the bank. So the next day she cancelled our joint banking account... Read more »

If you opened a personal joint bank account, it is usually opened "A or B",not "A and B", which makes a huge difference. If the account was opened as "A or B" or "A,B", the meaning is the same. The Terms and Conditions agreement you would have been given by... Read more »
The moratorium said those who dont have the virus but are late will not be at risk of eviction but I've just paid my rent 8 hours late and my landlord is still attempting to follow thru on the 72hr notice. It also seems to me this prop mgmt company is predatory. I fell down the steep crooked... Read more »

A landlord does not have to accept rent paid after a 72 hr deadline and normally can proceed to evict if they wish. Currently however no court in Oregon is processing or enforcing residential landlord-tenant cases so the landlord can do little at the moment to enforce rent payments. If they DO... Read more »

This sounds very bad.
I might be willing to help, but first I need to know who is the employer and owner of the business. Also, where you worked and when this all happened.
We would like to know if it would be advantageous to create a LLC that would make us employees with regular paychecks instead of using profits as personal income. Thank you for your help.

Generally, the answer is yes - from a liability standpoint. To shield your personal assets from claims against your business, at a minimum you must form an entity separate from yourselves as individuals. That's usually an LLC, but it could also be a corporation. The DBA alone is not enough... Read more »
I'm in a new multi-member LLC with uneven ownership percentage but everyone contributes the same dollar amount per percentage, (ie 1%=$2k, 5%=$10k, etc). Almost 100% of the capital contributions will be for 1 private investment idea this year, not stock related. I know the membership operating... Read more »

You need an operating agreement to define these terms immediately. Without an agreement, you have no good way to resolve disputes, add or remove members, track profit shares, etc.
You need everyone to come together on this. Frankly you should not be investing money into any company where... Read more »

Sounds like you will need to sue them. I doubt a letter alone is going to dislodge $100k from someone. You need a real threat. Give me a ring and I can look at it with you.
Could a company have one name but operate under another? The webside specializes in organic farming and farming tools. Also, is there any liability using "Dr." or "Doctor" so long as I am not giving out medical advice?
answered on May 8, 2018
A business name does not have to match the name of a website it owns. It is fairly common for a business to own internet properties of a different name. It is likely fine to use the name doctor as part of a longer website name, so long as you do not do anything to suggest or cause confusion as to... Read more »
When I was hired on by a company I had to sign a non compete contract June 15 2016. The restriction is for two years. I habe learned that the new law is 18 months. If that law went into effect January 1 2016 does the contract stand or is it voided by not containing the correct requirements?

I don't know what new law you are talking about. Do you have a citation for it?
Four hour maximum sitting time only. CPR certification only. Not looking to make a big business out of this. Would I need insurance, and if so what type? Would a simple contract be enough to cover my bases?
answered on Mar 9, 2016
I do not do elder law, but you might want to look into if this would require some sort of license like a CNA. As to insurance, you always want to have insurance, and a commercial general liability (CGL) should suffice, along with perhaps a professional liability rider. This way if something happens...
