    Zebulon’s Answer

    This is a tricky question that many websites face regularly. It depends on your services and how much you differentiate your business from the products that the trademarks represent. The question really is can a person get in trouble for using logos without permission, and the answer is yes. Theoretically, you would need permission to use the logos, however if a company were to list brands that it does professional shopping services for, it should put a disclaimer in that states that in no way are the businesses interrelated. This would reduce the risk of confusion and prove that you were not trying to misuse or misappropriate the trademarks in question. Good Luck in your venture.

    You could argue with the management that you have been constructively evicted because you cannot sleep nor enjoy the property for its intended purpose, and this has in effect forced you to move out. However this argument is not certain as it requires that the audio intrusions to actually put you out. But moving out coupled with a diagnosis of insomnia from the noise possibly could allow you to break the lease early. You may also find value in contacting a landlord tenant attorney in your area to quickly review the lease and specific situation better. Good Luck in resolving the situation.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    You should locate a landlord tenant attorney near you to consult regarding your options. Without knowing who signed the lease and the specific terms of the agreement it cannot be determined. You will need a copy of the lease you signed, to review either with the leasing office or with a local attorney. You can use the find a lawyer feature on this site. Good Luck.

  • Can someone take me to court after agreement terms were met?

    I was a editor on a documentary project and had to remove myself. In the original contract I signed if I were not to finish the project I would have to pay the deposit I was paid up front plus fees in loss of time & to find a new editor. Total wou...

    Zebulon’s Answer

    First off sorry to hear about the unfortunate situation. Overall, they could try to take you to court but they probably have a low chance of success, why?, because you have a good defense. You paid the original counter party off, and they accepted the money (300) if you have emails that explain that the 300 is payment in full to extinguish your obligation then you may well be safe from any further action. But as explained it depends on the actual language of the contract and emails. Good Luck.

    This is most likely a circumstance where you need to find a competent attorney and discuss your case with them in private. An open forum such as this will only be of limited assistance. I suggest you use the find a lawyer tool here on Avvo and locate a few attorneys in your area that are willing to consult with you regarding the mistreatment you have received.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    This is probably an unfortunate instance where you have little legal recourse, however a full determination isin't possible on this public forum without all the facts. Businesses are allowed leniency in Georgia to accept or deny service to customers. I am sorry to hear about the problems you had with the day care and hopefully they can help you in the future or give you a discount going forward. Good Luck.
