The highly respected Hollywood film production company is going to produce a new movie about Russian-German history. The descendants of the main heroes (German noble families) are still alive and do not wish the defamation. We mailed the company a...
You do need a consultation with an tertainment litigator.
You seem to be assuming there will be defamation. Defamation means provably false facts, not simply negative or unflattering portrayals. Also, since no one owns historical facts, you may be in for a disappointment.
Your own lawyer can better advise you once they have reviewed the facts.See question
What are some of the reasons the person doing the interview separate the husband and wife?
If you're referring to immigartion, they're looking for sham marriages, and different answers to the same question could indicate that.
Also, there's an evidentiary spousal privilege so that 1 spouse can never be compelled to testify against the other spouse.See question

Can you then use those photos of those who you didn't hire in advertising if they did not indicate they were copyrighted. Since they sent them willingly or does it require more than just willingly to take such action? what constitutes free use f...
No, you can't use submitted photos unless you have written consent from both the photographer (for the COPYRIGHT rights to their photo) and from the person in the photo (for the PUBLICITY rights to their image, plus their CONTRACTUAL agreement to have their image used for this advertising purpose). It''s also possible that the person in the photo bought the copyright to their photo from the photographer, and you need their consent for a the copyright rights, rather than from their phototagrapher.See question
Can the prosecutor in a trademark infringement case request money or request that the defender face jail time before sending the defender a cease and desist letter?
You got a cease and desist letter from a private CIVIL law firm, probably Johnson & Pham in Woodland Hills, CA, threatening you about stopping infringing on the firm's client's products and asking for money.
CIVIL lawyers are not CRIMINAL prosecutors, and it's just a letter. Criminal prosecutors work for the government, and for us, the people who expect the government to enforce the CRIMINAL laws. Only convicted CRIMINALS face jail time.
Johnson & Pham, however, if ignored, will sue you in CIVIL lawsuit, literally, a federal case, because most trademark law is federal, for money damages. They will not go away if ignored, they'll sue you, because the existing laws are harsh, they have a strong case against you, they bought one of our counterfeit products, and they know a judge could award their client $2M per infringed trademark..
.Hire a lawyer immediately to negotiate a settlement BEFORE you get sued, so it goes away quicker and the damages are minimized.See question

Is it legal, with parental consent, for a minor individual to photograph a nude figure of legal age (i.e. model) in non pornographic (no sexually explicit) positions? I am a member of a local photography group which wants to allow a minor photogra...
The only definition I know of a "child pornography" is when the OBJECT is a child. The age of the creator of the work doesn't matter,
Having the minor creator's parent present is a good idea to avoid any controversy about exposing the minor creator to nudity. Minors aren't legally capable of consenting to sexual activity and nudity connotes sexual activity, even if your group's activity is essentially photography and nudity is just one aspect of it.See question
(Texas)My friend agreed to buy the car from us has stopped making payments and has moved out of state. The car is in my name solely. What are my options to get the car back? Can I report it stolen since I have asked her to return the vehicle mu...
You can't convert a civil wrong into a criminal one. Your "friend" is in breach of the (probably oral) contract to buy your car, and you need to sue them where they live now to get compensated. Unless you had a written contract that says so, or a UCC-1 financing statement filed for a security interest in the car, you can't get it back (and would be obligated to give them their payments made back), although.as a practical matter, if you sue them and they have no money, they might give it back to you.See question
I live in Kansas and I loaned someone who lives in Illinois some money for a potential business deal. We didn't have a contract, just an oral agreement. He hasn't paid me back. I wired the money from Kansas to Illinois. Can I hire an Kansas attorn...
An oral agreement is a contract. Yours should have included a provision about when the borrower was supposed to pay you back, and if they didn't, then they;re in breach, and you can sue for breach of contract. You will need to prove the elements of that claim which are 1( contract 2) breach 3) no excuse and 4) the lender's damages. If you need to prove 1,2 and 4 by your own testimony because you have no emails, notes, or texts, then that's how you do it. They have the burden of proving 3) an excuse.
You need to sue the borrower where they live.See question
