You're asking about media in which the owner can assert certain intellectual property rights. This does involve all the categories you correctly listed, but if you reposted in the Copyright Law category, the attorneys there could probably offer the most meaningful insight. Good luck

I am currently building an online adult Toy store, I haven’t done anything yet except source products. I live in New York. My question is legally do I have to have an 18+ only disclosure on my website?

Additionally, since you sell online through credit cards, access to shopping...Read more »
It is pretty standard for an employee of a company that gets a patent on work related work to cede ownership to the employer. This matter will be governed entirely by the agreement you signed. Thus, what rights you have needs to be determined in a review of the agreement.
