    In general, a principal is liable for his/her/its agent's misconduct as long as the agent was acting within his scope of employment. For example, if the agent commits a wrongful act that injures a third party, and the agent is acting within his/her actual or ostensible authority, then the principal is liable to the third party. See Civil Code § 2330 et seq.; see also Ach v. Finkelstein (1968) 264 Cal. App. 2d 667, 677, 70 Cal. Rptr. 472. However, you weren't clear on whether this is a...

    In general, Cyber Piracy (or online piracy) is the registration of a domain name of another's mark for the primary purpose of selling the domain to the mark owner for an extortionate sum of money. See Chatam Intern. v. Bodum, Inc., 157 F.Supp.2d 549 (E.D. Pa. 2001). It’s usually for the purpose of retaining, and not using the domain name, with the notion that a party with greater interest will eventually buy it from the cyber-squatter. In the past, trademark owners have been forced to sue...

    This is a very good question especially due to the recent cybersecurity breaches that occur. In the past, there have been cyber attacks on law firms' network infrastructures and confidential files were compromised. In general, an attorney has a duty of confidentiality and confidence towards the client. Attorneys have an express duty “[t]o maintain inviolate the confidence, and at every peril to himself/herself to preserve the secrets of his/her client.” See Bus. & Prof. Code, § 6068(e)(...

    It seems that their conduct constitutes nuisance. I agree with Mr. Ashouri in that you can report the incident to the appropriate state agency. The website for the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety is http://www.permitla.org/csr.

  5. Legitimate terms of service for an online service provider

    I agree with Mr. Doland in that filtering a provision out of the entire Terms of Service is not the proper method of analysis. A contract may be interpreted as a whole and in conjunction with its sub-parts. Be as it may, it may be standard industry practice to include a provision that permits the website to unilaterally terminate a subscription. However, as my colleague pointed out, the website may be liable for a partial refund.

    In general, both state and federal laws regulate e-commerce websites and the collection of customer information (e.g., personally identifiable information or "PII"). In fact, the Federal Trade Commission (the "FTC") has specific guidelines, which are referred to as the Fair Information Practice Principles. They are as follows: i. Notice/Awareness - Consumers should be given notice of an entity's information practices before any personal information is collected from them ii. Choice/...

    I agree with my colleagues in that you can hire a third party, whether an attorney or other organization (e.g., Corporation Service Company) that can act as the registered agent for service of process. Many law firms provide this service for an annual fee.

  8. I am a co-founder of a stationery business. What are the pros & cons of copyrighting my illustrations under my name vs company?

    The answer to your question depends on who wants to ultimately control the copyrights. For example, if you choose to be the copyright's author/claimant, then you have the prerogative to transfer, sell or revoke the copyrights to any third party, e.g., your company. This way, you retain control. The potential "disadvantage" is the cost of paying for a separate copyright license agreement. It's best to speak with a lawyer to go over the options.

    Your predicament relates to data collection and privacy. California laws have recently influenced the regulation of data collection and privacy online. For example, the California Online Privacy Protection Act (“OPPA”) requires the operators of commercial websites which collect personally identifiable information from California's residents to conspicuously post and comply with a privacy policy which meets certain requirements. OPPA is codified under Business & Professions Code §§ 22575-22579....

    Yes, although there are restrictions on a foreign resident's registration of certain legal entities (e.g., S-corporations), however, you should be able to register a company in the United States as long as you follow the guidelines. My recommendation is that you consult with a business attorney who knows the rules and regulations.
