It's a scam. The IRS doesn't call you on the phone and they don't threaten to arrest you for a criminal charge. But if you're concerned becuase you do owe money, you should check your credit score at www.annualcreditreport.com to see if you're being sued civilly by anyone.See question
The person I bonded out, is not going to show up and I believe they are getting high. And I was told you can't get high
if the bond says so, yes, but it probably doesn't allow you to revoke it . You need to check the language of the document you signed, since no one who hasn't seen it can tell you what it says.See question
My dentist is suing me for $994.00. I went to their office for a procedure on 2013. Their website never mentions what insurances they accept, so you don't know if you're out of network or in network. Also, they didnt tell me that information. When...
Check to see if you ever signed any agreement with them when you first went to this dentist. Chances are, you signed an agreement saying that you agreed to pay any charges incurred, whether your insurance paid for it or not. If you did sign a contract like that, then you're liable for this debt no matter how long they took to bill you and no matter how bad their website may have been about disclosing whjat insurance they accepted.
Doctors and dentists often agree to submit claims to patients' insurers as a courtesy, but since they can't control what insurers do or don't do, they don't take responsibility for what an insurer covers or not, which is why their contracts provide that they will look to the patient for payment.
There are also pre-approvals you can get to find out about the coverage of any procedure you're not sure will be covered.See question

Business partners who fall out are in a tough situation because "ousting" someone is not easy. Since here emotions are strained and communications have completely stopped , the best way to resolve things amicably and fast will probably need to involve intermediaries such as dispassionate, objective lawyers.
To engineer a buyout, hire a lawyer to draft a buy-sell agreement of her membership share (if this is an LLC) or her stock (if this is a C corporation) with the appropriate warranties, disclosures, and assignments.See question
I have a song that I wrote part of (not the chorus), fincnaced and produced. The writer that wrote the chorus says he doesn't want me to release the song. What are my options
This is a really complicated area of law, because music law is insanely complicated.
The answer to your question depends on INTENT and whether you and this other writer are "joint authors" under the U.S. Copyright Act. You look at your intent to be a joint author, and this other writer's intent. So let's say you started out co-writing a song with this writer and things were good until at some point you got into a dispute and that's when he said you couldn't release the song you both wrote.
If both of you intended to co-write this song, you're joint authors, and your co-writer is wrong, you CAN release the song. Joint authorship means either of you can release the song and make copies of it, and create "derivative works" of it, as long as you account to your co-writer for their share of the song's ownership and income. in a perfect world where everyone had their own music lawyer, you and your co-writer would each have a music publisher which would own your respective songwriting works, and your respective music publishers would do a separate co-publishing agreement for each song you co-write with someone else which spelled out the "splits" of who owns what.
That's the song. That musical composition, lyrics and melody, gets registered for a copyright. That composition also gets registered with a performing roghts society for TV and radio play and film royalties when it's "performed."
Anyone can"cover" the song once it's published, and you and your co-writer wouldn't have a choice abolut it, which is why that kind of license is called a compusory license.
When the song is recorded, that master recording gets another copyright registration. if someone wanted to "synch" the composition and/or the recording of the composition with their own video, like in a movie, they'd need a "synch" license, and your music publisher, which owns your songwriting share of the song, would have to consent.
Confused yet? This is why you need your own music lawyer. if you plan to make music your career, and your work is valuable, hire a music lawyer to struture your music business affairs.See question

Do I need to get resale permit or license from Disney authorized dealers in order to sell Disney products online?
If you're selling USED products and you identify them as such and you're very careful not to imply any affiliation wiith Disney or their subsidiary or parent companies, then no.
If you want to sell NEW Disney items, you'd need a license, and you won't get one. Disney is a very famous brand, as are their many copyrighted and trademarked properties. They have the luxury of being able to decide who to do business with.You should assume that their authorized dealers are under contract to not assign or license their rights, so Disney can be sure to maintain quality control over products that bear their brands.
Know that DIsney is very litigious and very protective of their intellectual property rights. They have a carefully cultivated reputation of never settling any cases. They're not a company to mess with.See question

Probably yes, but I'm guessing about what your fee agreement says. The definitive answer is in that written fee agreement you signed. Ask your lawyer to explain it to you if you're not sure what it says.See question
