How to sale songs youve written about your life?
First Step: Start copyrighting the songs. You can do them as albums or individually, and do them online at copyright.gov or through the mail.
Then your second steps may vary. You might have your daughter join a songwriters association or look for an agent or manager to help your daughter promote or "place" her songs.
You should also consult an entertainment attorney before entering into any agreements. Good Luck.
I have been receiving workers comp and attending physical therapy.
You should contact a personal injury attorney to discuss the accident. It is often the case that they can quickly discover the insurance carrier(s) that may be liable. Good Luck.See question
I wanted to know if I am being harassed by one of my Manger a lady and she won't leave me alone I do my job but she always complain and want to talk to me but never closes the door and I have wrote a note to my director saying she is picking on me...
You may want to call an employment lawyer in your area to discuss the particulars of your situation. In a forum like this a lawyer could not give you a definitive answer without further information. Your best bet is to look for a lawyer who may specialize in workplace harassment and try to discuss your problem with them on the phone. You can use the find a lawyer tool here on avvo and try contacting them directly. Good Luck.See question
Do I need an attorney to sell my life story to a movie producer? How do I do it or what kind of attorney do I need? It's a good story.
You should find an attorney to work with you in creating a contract for the purpose. Many attorneys might suggest a 'life story rights' type contract. This may be an option contract that gives the producer a window of opportunity to use your life story, and if they do not then the rights to any movie based on your life revert to you. I do suggest finding an attorney for a transaction like this. It may seem simple but you don't want to accidentally enter a contract that is too broad, too vague, or too long in duration without being properly compensated. Good Luck in your endeavor!See question
I would agree with Attorney Sack above, in that you might focus your search for the right counselor in the intellectual property / internet fields more so than the broad industry of entertainment law. While it is of course a complex industry with many steps to creating a successful viable business, there is a beauty in that... It is also a potentially very lucrative space as technology changes the distribution landscape. SO for all the warnings, don't loose heart, no major accomplishment is gonna drop in your lap. Look for a music intellectual property and/or internet specializing attorney. Good Luck.See question
My school is thinking about dropping multiple sports
This is a very fact specific question that is difficult for attorneys to assist you with in an online public forum such as this. You should try to find an attorney in your local area (jurisdiction) to consult. Someone may be able to give you their view of the situation, after reviewing the specific facts, free of charge. If you are female this may fall under Title 9 protection rules. It is worth looking into. Also, due to the fact you live in Florida, you might review the case of Tim Tebow's high school football career. Good Luck!See question

I TOOK A CAR DEALER TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT.AND HE DID NOT SHOW UP.SO THE JUDGE DEFAULTED HIM.NOW I HAVE GOTTEN PAPERS TO GO BACK.BECAUSE THE DEALER FILED A MOTION TO SET ASIDE THE JUDGMENT.AND SET ASIDE THE CASE FOR TRIAL.I TOLD THE JUDGE THAT I D...
This sounds like a creditor debtor issue as well as an issue of whether the dealer did violate the judges directions. You should argue that the car is worth much less because of the continued repairs, and making you take back a bad car would be unfair to you legally and economically, especially since you already won in court the first time. The main thing is show up, be well dressed, polite, but firm and argue that the judge should deny the motion to set aside. If the dealer really wanted to sell you the car he would have fixed it faster or shown up to court the first hearing. Tell the judge something along the lines of Georgia has a lemon law to protect people from getting ripped off, I came to court the first time to put an end to me getting ripped off. Please uphold the prior judgement and prevent me from getting ripped off. Good Luck in your Endeavor.See question
Specifically a business that makes handmade goods, would it be a violation of the First Sale doctrine to buy licensed product from a licensed legal distributor (B2B) and to then create other goods from that licensed raw material?
You should make sure you create a different good for your own sales, and not merely a repackaging of the other good you purchased. Additionally you may need a license yourself. As is indicated on many items, (not for individual resale) you will run into problems if you buy in bulk items that a not intended for resale. However, you sound as if you are making a product from a raw material which means you likely would not need to rely on protection from the first sale doctrine, but if you were using a trademarked logo for instance (from the purchased good) in your product you might be running afoul of other laws beyond copyright. Best bet is to find a lawyer in your area who can consult you in high detail confidentially on your best way to protect yourself. Good Luck in your endeavor.See question
