    The answer to your question is Yes, you can engage in this type of activity legally. However, I would suggest you do hire a lawyer to review your contracts (and any local laws, etc.) You may want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in more detail. Most lawyers on Avvo, including myself, offer a free phone consultation.

    The first question to ask is the threat of physical violence real? If you think it is, contact the police. They will take a threat of physical violence (which is called assault) seriously. The FB quote you describe does not give you the right to punch this person the next time you see them. Perhaps moving on with all your lives is the best advice I can give.

    No good ever comes from sexting! Either you will cross the line and create liability for yourself, or your new girlfriends will find what you do to old girlfriends and you will become very lonely. No good ever comes from sexting!

    This is the classic definition of Blackmail - you should call the police. However, before contacting the authorities, where you underage at the time? If you were, and if you have a copy of the video, you should discuss your situation with a lawyer before entering the legal arena so no unintended consequencies befall you. Use the "Find a Lawyer" tab on this site and choose someone from your locale. Most lawyers on Avvo offer a free phone consultation.

    Yes, you could send an innocent person to jail if you lie about your age. Further, if you take nude pictures of yourself, you would be engaging in kiddie porn - a serious criminal act that could send you to prison. Do you have someone you can discuss your urges with - e.g. a parent, older sibling, doctor, pastor, etc. You should reach out to someone to help you with your issues.

    You did not say, but it reads like your material was copied. It is not the students you should be chasing but rather Test Prep who copied your work. You have a copyright in any work you create and publish. This facts say to me that you have a good case against your competitor. You may want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in more detail. Most lawyers on Avvo, including myself, offer a free phone consultation.

    While truth is an absolute defense for a defamation suit, you could have created liability for yourself with your video in another way such as "false light." Further, while you may have an absolute defense, if you need to hire a lawyer (and I would tell you to never enter the legal arena without one) it could cost you thousands of dollars. Sometimes being right is not enough and you should let things go before they get out of hand. You may want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in...

    This is America, you can sue anyone, anytime for anything - the real question is will you win. The scenario above is a little short on facts. If you are talking about a guest who put some pix on FB taken with her phone camera - I would say the law is not on your side. Generally, pictures taken in public places are the property of the photographer, and those pictured have no expectation of privacy. If you are talking about the paid photographer at your wedding I would say - what does...

    Are You Planning on Opening a New E-Commerce Website? There is much you need to know as you begin your new business. I suggest you do not attempt to write your own legal policies. This is not where your training and background lie, and though you are probably as smart as an attorney, you do not have their experience. Below is a checklist for legal issues I use for new e-commerce clients. 1. Business entity - Are you going to be a C corp, an LLC or a sole proprietorship? 2. Terms...
