Facebook has procedures for this. I've linked to one of the relevant pages where you can read more, but here's the bottom line:
"What should I do if someone is pretending to be me?
"If someone has created an account to impersonate or imitate you, please go to the impostor profile (timeline) and click "Report this Person" in the left column. Check the "Report this Person" box, choose "Fake Account" as the reason, and add "Impersonating me or someone else" as the report type. Be sure to add a...
1. Sure. LLCs are very flexible. You just have to set it up properly to reflect what you want.
2. You can add owners any time you want.
3. It depends on the type of intellectual Property, but copyright, trademark or patents might be applicable, or it might be something that can only be protected contractually.
4. Whatever you need to protect your confidential information and assure that whatever they create is either yours or you have a right to use it.
If these answers are not adequate,...
These questions are very very fact specific. That means an example of made up names will do little or nothing at all to help you figure out what will work in your specific situation.
A lot depends on the target market. Using your example, while lots of people eat pizza, one company may target the high-end, heirloom vegetable, artisan cheese crowd and one may target the cheap - quick crowd. Or it might not matter because the market is narrow enough that those sorts of distinctions are...
Unless you have a specific contract or lease that requires you have liability insurance, you don't NEED liability insurance - you buy it to protect yourself against potential claims.
Whether you want insurance will depend on what you're selling and how much of a risk you think you'll have of people feeling like they didn't get what they bargained for.
There are various ways to protect yourself from liability. Insurance is one of them. Choosing the proper business entity is another; and...
First of all, President is an officer title and BOD means the Board of Directors. Sometimes the President is also a member of the board, but not always. There can be a chairman of the board of directors, but not usually a "president of the board of directors."
Same goes for VP and Secretary - they are officer titles, not board positions.
As far as conflict of interest, you can serve on both boards but you have to disclose to each company that you are on the board of the other one; I would...
It sure might. But if it's been going on for "a couple of years" you may have lost the window of opportunity to stop them. You should really speak to an attorney sooner rather than later if you want to do anything. You have to enforce your rights to keep them.
“Disparage” is often used in severance agreements rather than “defame” because it is a lot broader and not as well-defined in a legal sense. Neither your intent nor the truth is necessarily a defense where disparagement, rather than defamation, is prohibited.
This is going to sound very non-legalistic, but I'd say if you have to ask, then whatever you were going to say is probably disparaging.
The goal of non-disparagement clauses is usually to have everyone say as little as possible. It...
A fictitious name statement doesn't change the fundamental nature of the entity. A corporation is a corporation. Filing a fictitious name as "John Doe" doesn't turn it into a person, and filing Acme Company doesn't change it into a non-incorporated entity.
Anyone can sue anyone for anything if they want to pay the filing fees.
And even friendly and nice sexual texts and pictures can be considered harassment if they are not consensual.
So if the whole course of the exchange appears consensual, she could sue but most likely not win.
First thing to do is make sure you have and keep copies of the entire course of the contact including you wanting to stop and her encouraging you to continue.
Second, show your texts to someone else, an...
