Are there any issues or concerns in using the word "university" or "school" or "academy" or "institute" or similar in a non-official commercial private for-profit website? There's thousands currently online in various industries; from a complian...
Yes, there are potential issues. It's not so easy to make it clear that the words you're referring to don't literally mean what they mean, and the USPTO and trademark restrictions exist to protect consumers from confusion, so this is a ripe source of such confusion.
Trademarks often contain deliberate misspellings and/or misuses to signal that the words are being used figuratively rather than literally --maybe that's how you'd make it clear?

Some US federal and local governmental agencies publish videos on YouTube, for example: 1) US Department of State: https://www.youtube.com/user/statevideo/videos 2) House Committee on the Judiciary Hearings: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVvv...
Don't confuse "public" with "public domain." Just because something's accessible on the internet doesn't mean someone doesn't own that content and will enforce their rights to not be infringed.
So if your intended use is for YouTube, yes. If not, you may need to get a liens from the content owner.See question

This is a little confusing. Plaintiff served subpoena on a third-party to produce documents. This third party had previously been in a lawsuit with the Defendant in the subject case. During the prior litigation between the third party and Defendan...
The protective order should specify exactly which documents are covered and which ones aren't, and may also exempt documents that are required to be produced, pursuant to a subpoena, as opposed to those produced voluntarily. There may also be procedures in places requiring notification to the Defendant so they can move to quash the subpoena before any production.
You need to review the language in the protective order, or hire a lawyer to handle this.See question
Is it considered libelous to write a fictional story with a timeline starting on election night - November 8th, based on current political contenders and characters?
One of the current political contender has no sense of humor, bears personal grudges, has a lot of money, and threatens to sue and actually sues people.
Because anyone can sue anyone for anything, I would guess that if your book becomes known to this contender, you'll get sued for libel.See question

i want to secure a logo trademark for a clothing brand. i havent sold anything yet since my product is still being developed. I have an instagram account that advertises my brand. Can this be a proof of use? Thanks.
When applying for a trademark registration, you have the option of applying based on an "intent to use" which allows you to develope the brand/business before converting the application to actual use in commerce.
Launching a new business can benfit most from legal counsel before you spend a lot of time, money, and energy on that business, and what you don't want to do is make decisions that are irrevocable or very costly to change. One of those crucial decisions is choosing an available and viable trademark. See your own IP/business counsel now.See question
