  • Can i sue for them recordeing the live broadcast and sending it to a porn site?

    i did a live broadcast to the world via live stream when i was drunk i showed my self nude asking for comments on my body someone recorded the live broadcast and uploaded it to a porn site

    Warren’s Answer

    You didn't ask for anyone to post that tape, but what are the terms of service with the service you used to livestream? Maybe there is a condition of use that says that those watching may not record and rebroadcast. I'd check that out, and if you can find that rebroadcasting or recording was not allowed, then the reposter was violating his license, and you can get the video pulled.

    If you haven't simply asked the porn site to remove your video, you should. They probably don't want trouble.

  • Is it legal to have a domain name of someone else if the person whose name you hold wants the domain? Can you legally sell it?

    I am interested in buying a few domains of other people's names. The law on this is not so clear to me. What I understand is that it is illegal to purchase a domain in the personal name of someone else in an attempt to make profit.

    Warren’s Answer

    If you don't misrepresent the site as something it is not, you are typically okay. If you are trading on someone's name for commercial gain, you're more likely to be in trouble.

    Just getting a name and then holding it hostage to a rich person will usually be a bad idea. The Trump purchase of jebbush.com involves political speech issues. The closer you are to political speech and farther from commercial efforts, the better your position.

    Usually, for real people in a real world (rather than people who are famous), the named individual can spend a few thousand dollars and probably get the site back, IF the only motivation is to make money.

  • Can I use photo's of bracelets posted online for a website that is designed to educate and teach the public?

    I am currently in the process of creating a web page devoted to people who are interested in learning more about paracord. It is a fully comprehensive site that includes the history, how-to's, frequently asked questions, and other information abo...

    Warren’s Answer

    If this is a noncommercial page and doesn't just copy other people's pages, you're probably okay. You'd need to ensure that you have a means for people who want to have their photos pulled can send you a DCMA takedown notice.However, if you can pay a few bucks and get actual permission, you're better off.

  • Do Bankruptcy over rules foreclosure

    2009 I filed a chapter 7 BK and discharge in 2010. My HOA put a lien on the property and now 2016. Now my HOA is Foreclosing on my property for not paying. My loan was not reaffirmed after BK and my mortgage is not on my credit. If I get Foreclos...

    Warren’s Answer

    This is a common problem with HOAs. It should not go on your credit, but very often, these kinds of things pop up where they should not, and you have to deal with them. Be prepared to write to the credit agencies to ensure that they know you had no personal obligation to pay these debts.

    Whether you can purchase another home is based purely on your ability to convince someone to give you money. There's no law preventing someone from loaning to you.

  • Can I make a copy of a movie and leave it at my family summer home?

    Now that I can copy movies for my self. Can I make a copy for my family summer home and leave it there?

    Warren’s Answer

    Generally, you can make copies for yourself, but not for others. If you have a copy for the purpose of allowing people who are staying at your place while you are gone, you're in trouble. If you just are trying to keep from physically moving the movies around, you're fine.

  • Is this true and if so what can I do?

    I am going to have to go through infertility treatment and I have my medical insurance through my employer (PPO) I have asked them if we could add infertility treatment on our coverage but they will not. Texas the state I live in is one of the ma...

    Warren’s Answer

    While Texas is a mandate state, it also has a number of exemptions, so not every business carries that duty. You might just ask your employer why the insurance doesn't offer that service, and then your PPO, if neither of those answers are satisfactory, I'd talk to an attorney. There are lots of us.

  • Should I be paying Social Security and Medicare taxes after I have physically left US?

    For a year after my masters degree, I was on OPT. During that time one need not pay Social Security and Medicare taxes. I did not get an H1B in the lottery - so no work permit. As a solution, my company kept me on the US payroll, but physically m...

    Warren’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer - while generally you may not be liable, there are weird situations. It is worth speaking to an attorney who will take the time to really take all the details down and make sure that your demand for the funds back will be heard, and correct.

    Warren’s Answer

    If you know who drove the other car, then sue them in small claims. If the car is not totaled, go get it and stop the bleeding.

  • How do i go about with sueing if i can?

    Car was towed cause car company didn't get insurance policy from insurance company. But had insurance 5 days before and car company says to have insurance company that i got my insurance from to pay for it for not submitting papers to car company

    Warren’s Answer

    Seems like a rather simple issue. Probably easiest approach is to use small claims court. Your closest Justice of the Peace will probably have a form to fill out at the court, and just follow the directions that they give you, or hunt around for instructions on handling small claims court. It helps to have a visit with a local attorney.

  • Is it legal to put any time limit on a handicap parking spot at a place of business such as my apartment complex?

    I live in a large apartment complex. I'm having issues with the management over the time limit they have placed on a handicap spot (5 minutes only). The handicap spot is right next to a regular parking spot by the mailboxes. There is another spot...

    Warren’s Answer

    I don't see why you should feel bad about using the spot when it is open. You might contact the city folks in SA and ask what the local rules are regarding disabled parking, and make sure that the apartment complex is doing its job. I don't know about any time limit on parking on handicap spots.
