First, there is no such thing as a "standard" agreement. There may be and often are standards for a given laqrge compnay that does not want to negotiate chnages, but you had still better have an attorney look at the deal to make sure you are not being pole-axed, or at least not too much.
Second, being non-exclusive, any sub-license is alslo not exclusive and there is no reason to de-list the song. Let tons of artists cover the song. Why not?
The short answer is that in no case is any attorney engaging in an attorney client relationship, nor in fact offering legal advice. Most attorneys on Avvo add an automatic tag line to this effect. It is closer to standing in front of an audience and giving general interpretations.
A longer answer, at least for these three areas is that the three areas are controlled by federal law, not local law--three different parts of the U S Code, which Congress controls. So familiarity with local...
This sounds like a home-brew Note. There might be all kinds of wrinkles, some good for you and some not. If there is substantial money involved, yours personally, it seems worthwhile to have a MD attorney look at it and analyze all the consequences. It will likely cost you less than you think.
So, the take-home is always get all agreements in writing, b/c people forget quickly what they agreed.
So, if anyone else can testify first hand what you two agreed then you can point out to him what he agreed an that actually you did have contract, an oral one, and it is enforceable because it was to be completed within a year. If you wrote the script of the video and the song then you have copyrights on both, and can sue him for infringement if he uses the video; tell him that. Alas,...
The only way to register a mark is to use it in commerce to mark or brand a product or service.
Nor can you register a copyright on a single sentence. Finally, copying one sentence from a poem is an infringement.
BTW, next time you write a poem or a collection, register at copyright.gov. Many advantages.
Three years of non-use creates a presumption of abandonment. But that is not the same as the registration becoming dead—not automatically unless a renewal deadline is missed. Also, you cannot just succeed to the registration. You may need to petition to cancel the existing reg., and then apply in your own right, showing use and clearance.
Before you invest in the mark, invest a few bucks—most likely less—on a conversation in confidence with a TM lawyer.
No USPTO registration is ever needed to use a logo. The risk is in using it without making sure it does not create a likelihood of confusion with another, prior, user of a similar logo in a similar line of business.
The concepts of confusion and similarity are not easily defined, and that is one reason why one should consult a professional who is experienced working with these matters.
Also, a logo alone is far weaker in itself not being copied by someone else than a logo with an...
Your question is confusingly written. You really want to put a _picture_ of Cinderella on a crown, no name, correct. And you are going to get the picture from a Disney site, yes?
No, that is almost certainly a copyright violation at the least--some Disney artist drew it and they own it. They may also have registered the picture as a trademark, another violation.
But ... if you draw or have someone draw a Cinderella from scratch.... You can name it Cinderella if you would like. The...
