Unfortunately just like you an attorney would need to research this and thus you will need to setup a consultation with a lawyer to do this and expect to pay for his time and advise. Current law is easy, old law is not.

It will effect publishing, but it is not really a big issue. It impacts nothing else. If you amend for something else, change it, but no reason to spend now.

You do not get to keep packages sent to your address if you are not the intended recipient. Return to sender or you could be committing a crime.

Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer
If the contract shows the amount due and the installment amount and any interest, then I'm not sure you've been wronged. Whether the business may break into your residence to nab the mattress is a separate issue.

small claims would be perfect for you if your claim is less than $10,000.

first, send a self-serving letter to whoever you are going to sue setting forth the facts and making a demand.

when they do not respond include the letter with the complaint to show the court you did not want to take up the courts time and had assumed they do the right thing...but they didn't. Thus you had to sue in small claims.

neither side can bring in a lawyer............maybe even contact your...

Q: Retail Business Space Lease

Answered on Nov 27, 2018
James Alan Greer's answer
Dear LLC Lessee: It is standard practice for a Lessor to require a Personal Guarantee ("P.G.") from the Members of an LLC. The reasoning from a Lessor's standpoint includes the primary concern that an entity (an LLC, for example) can breach a Lease by simply winding down and dissolving, thereby leaving the Lessor with no manner of collecting lost rents. You asked if your LLC still offers protection if/when the two Members sign a P.G. - no, clearly the P.G. negates the personal property...

Unclear what is happening here, such as: who issued the citation; what is the violation specified on the citation, etc. However, your smog inspector may know the answer to your questions.

Q: What are some of the legal things we should be aware of

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law for Illinois on
Answered on Nov 26, 2018
Timur Akpinar's answer
It could be difficult for an Illinois attorney to address your question without knowing more information. For instance, will working from home involve proprietary software and introduce issues with the usage of that software? Maybe a starting point could be to consult with an attorney in Illinois who can review your current contracts and determine if they need to be supplemented or changed.

Q: what is a collective mark? Dilution in value?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law for Tennessee on
Answered on Nov 26, 2018
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer
A collective mark is a type of trademark owned not by an individual or company but by a collective group- so that each member of the group can use the mark. For example the wool trade mark or cotton trademark.

Dilution in value .. equity dilution in value occurs whenever more stock is issued. An example you own 10 shares and your friend owns 10 shares of stock. The company then issues 20 more shares. You went from owning 50% of the company to 25%. Your interest has been diluted....

Q: Is there any cases where I can find details about damage claims in a contract

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law for Iowa on
Answered on Nov 22, 2018
Timur Akpinar's answer
There are, but “damages” is a broad subject, where there are different types of damages, such as compensatory, punitive, consequential, among others. If this is for general knowledge or research, you can find a great deal of information on the subject of damages. If this is for an actual real-life situation, an attorney in your jurisdiction could probably provide more meaningful guidance regarding damages in a contract matter.

Q: Our company bid a job and now no longer has time to do it. No contract signed and contractor wants to sue for damages?

D. Mathew Blackburn's answer
First off you can be sued for pretty much anything so I'd answer that with a yes. Whether there's a viable claim is another story. The fact that the potential plaintiff doesn't really have a case won't stop them from filing suit and forcing you to go through the legal process of proving they don't have a case.

The first analysis is what was agreed to and what were the terms? Was there an agreement at all? If there was a agreement were there damages?

Without knowing more about...

Q: How can I sell my patent to Spotify for example?

Answered on Nov 14, 2018
Griffin Klema's answer
You could try contacting their legal department yourself, or you could engage the assistance of an attorney experienced in patent licensing. A word of caution: how you approach a prospective licensee must be done carefully. Coming across too strong could result in the company feeling threatened, and preemptively file a declaratory judgment action (lawsuit) against you. It is advisable to hire a lawyer to assist with this process.

Additionally, I generally recommend clients have any...
