    You probably cannot take a sound clip from a movie for any app, regardless of whether you make money off of it. Copying someone else's creative work product is violation of U.S. Copyright laws. There is a possible defense to a claim of copyright infringement based on "fair use" depending on (i) the amount of what is taken, (ii) the nature of the use for which it is taken, (iii) nature of copyrighted work, (iv) and effect of use on the market for the copyrighted work. This is a highly...

    As someone who has had 3 back surgeries, I certainly can relate with your pain. For your health , you need to consult with a neurosurgeon or Orthopaedic surgeon specializing in backs. Based on assessment of qualified physician, a med-mal attorney could assess whether or not you had a case. If u are in the Atlanta area, call me and I will recommend some doctors.

    Based on the facts you describe above, you are likely OK. The main two bodies of law that govern this question are copyright and trademark. Copyright law gives the author/creator of the work the EXCLUSIVE right to reproduce the work and any derivatives of the work. In other words, the creator of the Pac Man game has the exclusive right to publish Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man Jr., the Pac-Man cartoon, Pac-Man pop-up book etc. Thus, copyright law would not allow you to publish a book about Pac-Man....

    Probably not. The cost of proving the nail salon caused your injury is likely greater than your damages. Thus it is not likely to be a viable case

    Yikes! What you should do is get him out of your life as quickly as possible, and you should seriously consider seeking a restraining order. I am not an expert in domestic disputes, but I believe you could find out more information on how to do this on the the Cobb County Superior Court website. It probably does not make sense to pursue him for monetary damages based on his destruction of your personal items. Proof of losses would likely be difficult and collection even more so.

    Your unique logo (i.e. design) would be something that could be trademarked. You cannot trademark a generic name for the product as everyone who sells "carrots" has a right to use the term "Carrot" in the marketing of their "carrott" product.

    Banks and other premises owners are not responsible for every injury that occurs on their property. They do have a duty to take reasonable precautions to keep their premises reasonably safe. Typically, this means that they have to make sure that the premises is free from hazard that they had knowledge of or should have had knowledge of but you as a customer would not have seen even exercising reasonable care. The viability of your case will be very fact specific since black ice is...

    I am very sorry for the pain this has caused you and your daughter. This is not something that you want to pursue legally. My mom used to tell me that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar (or something like that). My advise would be to bake some cookies for the other mother and take them to her. While visiting inform the mother of what your daughter heard at school and that it hurt you and your daughter. Without accusing her daughter, ask the mother to do what she can to help you...

    You need to hire a us attorney who is a member of INTA and can arrange for foreign filings at reasonable costs. I would not recommend navigating this landscape pro se.
