    It seems you have a case if injuries are still there. Of course more facts are needed as well the pictures. Call a personal injury attorney in your locality. You can search excellent attorneys here on Avvo (look for NY and then Monroe). Best and good luck.

    There is an entire industry flourishing on international money transfer. The US is the leading country for international transfers. The industry is extremely lucrative and based on the fee and the arbitrage on the exchange rate. Aside from the opening of a bank account overseas (for which there is a specific regulation to comply with), you may have several reasons to send money overseas. Paying a bill, making a gift, lending money are plausible and generally lawful. In any case, banks...

    Do you have the name, position within the Agency, and the phone number of the person who called you? I assume you did not ask any. An agent usually gives you his/her contacts info. If so, you can easily double check the identity of the caller and verify if this is real. Ask the caller questions.

    The legal, corporate and tax repercussions are numerous. This is something you should plan in advance. There is very information that you can obtain here on Avvo. In addition, even after having selected a particular corporate structure you need to work with a CPA and international tax attorney to help you navigate the intricacies of US law. The selection of the most appropriate structure is a false problem. There is wrong or correct answer. Any structure can work, but you need to understand...

    Your question has more to do with Comparative Law and less with the practicality of the legal consequences. Let me break down your questions: (1) " I would not be considered criminal offender in terms of Canadian law because it is 'criminal offence' only for content exceeding 0.08 in Canada, Ontario". This assumption is wrong: Korean law and Canadian law are very different. You are comparing a state system with a Federal one. The ground and rationale of the laws maybe completely different....

    If there is not a de jure corporation, meaning the formed entity still lacks all the legal requirements to acquire its full legal and corporate personality under the law of that particular jurisdiction, in general promoters (investors/stockholders) are personally liable. Their actions are personal actions and the entity will become responsible only when, after formation, it ratifies the contracts that the promoters signed and expressly relief promoters from their personal liability. in general,...

    I agree with Mr. Doland. If you do not want to spend money for an attorney why then asking us an opinion? You think that you can obtain all the information you need? Avvo is a community to help you not only finding the very basic information you need (more often than not the law requires extensive analysis) but also the best professionals working with you, namely for your benefit. What if someone drags you to court because you infringed their rights? Are you still thinking to save money? Or do...

    I concur with Mr. Doland. You can form a company in the US. Selecting the most proper jurisdiction for incorporation is a delicate balance. However, in addition to that, once you start doing business in the US, you are subject to US taxation (state and Federal). In addition, because you are an alien foreign resident there are tax implications in your country of residence. The best solution for you is to work with an international firm. Please note that we have an Indian attorney among our staff....

    My suggestion is to develop and build a personal relation with the attorney rather the firm. Feel free to look around. As you will discover, attorneys are paid hourly or on a contingent basis. After you have spoken with at least three of them you can get you own idea and be more prepared to decide what it is better for you. I have several colleagues practicing Entertainment law. Feel free to contact my office. Best and good luck!
