  • Can T-Mobile charge us for unauthorized tablet purchases?

    In our phone plan with T-Mobile were 3 lines. My mom, my uncle and I. With the only one authoritized (at the time, now both of us) and name on the bill is my mom. However my uncle was got a promotional offer of free tablets (2) with data plans tha...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Has your mom contacted T-Mobile to protest the tablets saying she didn't authorize or receive the tablets? What is T-Mobile's position on why they issued them to your Uncle? Are you sure he was not authorized to make the changes? It depends on the contract language and who has previously been authorized. Name on the bill is not the same as being the only authorized person. If T-Mobile won't back down, then I recommend you bring the matter to a local civil attorney who handles small small claims cases to determine your options. You could bring the matter to court, but be aware that T-Mobile may then bring charges against your Uncle for theft of services and theft of goods. That may be harsh, but if he took the tablets knowing he was not authorized, and won't pay for them, then that is exactly what he is doing, committing theft.

    I can't think of any excuse for not returning a client's calls. I recommend a certified letter explaining what has occurred and what you are requesting. Make sure it has a deadline by which you expect to hear from her regarding resolution of the matter. If she still fails to talk with you, then call the State Bar of Texas General Counsel to file a complaint (1-800-932-1900).

    Kevin’s Answer

    Police don't want to get into a civil dispute. Report the vehicle as stolen. Based on what you say, it became stolen when he did not return it to the rightful owner. You will have to file a police report. Then the police will have to act. It will still go to court, but it will be criminal court, where he will face forgery and theft charges, your daughter will face forgery charges, or you will face criminal charges for filing a false report.

    Why do you need to go through a lawsuit to get something that belongs to you? Because you want the courts to help you get it back. If it is your vehicle, you also have the right to take a spare key and go pick it up where ever it is, as long as you can do so peacefully. (i.e. not a big fight, no threatening with weapons, no breaking an entering, etc.) I suggest you consult a local attorney who may be able to direct you to a repo-company.

  • I wrote a book with Trafford book co my book is on amazon I have not been paid fairly can I sue I also had problems with mistake

    I need to know what I have a right to do, I also need my contract read and explained

    Kevin’s Answer

    No one can advise you here without reading the contract. take the contract to an attorney you trust to review it and explain your position. If you don't have an attorney, I recommend using the find a lawyer features of this site to find someone in your area. Then review the advice they have provided to others on this site to see if you agree with their approach.

    Kevin’s Answer

    You have a lawyer, so other lawyers are not going to second guess his actions with limited knowledge you provide us here. Either trust your attorney to handle your matter, or fire them and get a new attorney you do trust. Don't go around second guessing what he/she is telling you.

  • I was raided by Homeland security for selling counterfeit tees valued at $150,000. I was not arrested.. What are the chances I

    will be sued or indicted?

    Kevin’s Answer

    Why would Homeland security be concerned about counterfeit tees? I would be more concerned with what they are really after. I suspect you know what it is, or who you know that they want to put pressure on. Either way, you are beyond the help of asking for free legal advice on the Internet. Hire an attorney now.

    Kevin’s Answer

    You need to see a criminal attorney immediately. You need to do what you can to keep your record clean.. It sounds like you have a possible defense if you had not left the store. I would be hard pressed to come up with an explanation of how your phone could have had evidence on it of if it was a possible weapon, so the store personnel may have made a mistake by taking your phone and preventing you from calling your mother. You need to discuss these matters with your attorney.

  • If I reproduce a product for my personal use is it copyright infringement?

    If I build a product that is 95%-99% the same as Company X's product can I use it for personal use? I am not a LLC or Corporation, just an individual.

    Kevin’s Answer

    Let's look at a few examples:
    You photocopy a book from the library so you can read it at your leisure? The copy is not bound, and may be black and white. It is 95% - 99% the same as the publisher's book.
    You take a video recorder into the movies just so you can watch it again later. The copy is of poorer quality, and you won't have the same experience, but it is 95% - 99% the same as the producer's movie. (Add $20 stale popcorn and you may be even closer.)

    These instances are clearly violations of copyright for personal use and fit with your description. So what ever you have in mind is probably also a violation. There is no exception to copyright law for personal use. There is an educational exception, and a few others, but that would not cover something that is 95% - 99% the same. Also, you use the word "product." Because of the commercial implications of the term "product," I would question your motives and intentions even further.
