    Are You Planning on Opening a New E-Commerce Website, App or Blog? There is much you need to know as you begin your new business. Further, your web site will need legal policies. 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 clients. 1. Business Model – Is your idea viable as...

    Because an international law suit is not cheap, I do not think the UK company would come after you. I suggest you write them saying what you said above (i.e. shut down the web site months ago, shutting down the corporationnow.) I do not think you will hear from them again.

    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.

  6. Question about a threat of physical violence on facebook.

    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.

  7. Can I get charged with harassment or cyber bullying?

    I advise my clients not to feed the Internet trolls. It only makes them more feisty. Ignoring the school yard bully usually means they will move on to someone else. My advice is to block this person from your social media sites, email and phone. I wouldn't start a conflict with the police, and certainly without hiring a lawyer. You never know what unintended consequences you might stir up. If, however, you are ever contacted by the authorities, say NOTHING to them without first...

    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!

    I wouldn't lose any sleep over this scenario. There is nothing "some guy" can do to get you into trouble. I tell my clients not to feed the trolls it only makes them hungrier. Block this guy from your sites and your phone and forget about him. If he pops up again, ignote him and block him again.

    From what I see of the facts it does not seem that you have anything to worry about.
