Copright Issue with selling replica's
If i create a replica prop that was handmade by myself, crafted after a popular movie prop, such as Batman the Dark Knight's Mask/Cowl that he wears, and want to sell it on ebay. To avoid copyright issues can i instead list an item such as an officially licensed toy that i am allowed to sell and include the replica piece to be given free to the winning bidder? so in effect i am no longer selling my replica mask but instead am selling a toy and giving away the mask free in combination with the toy. Does this free me of any legal issues that Warner Bros might want to come after me for? am i then protected?
I have seen this done many times and to date it seems to work although they might just be lucky and it might have nothing to do with this technique. thank you!
I started an estate sale business using the name ''Needful Things''. I wasn't sure where I came up with that name but it sounded good. Not too long ago I realized it is the name of a Stephen King novel. Am I in violation of copyright law? Should I change the name?
A consultant is offering to provide us copywriting services, but I am concerned his method of generating content is plagiarism.
He has automated a system to download ''conversations'' off the Internet and has multiple teams re-write content by other authors and vendors sentence by sentence and then publishes it as unique versions (10, 20, 50 unique versions generated based on these articles and conversations found on the Internet) to article sites and other online directories.
No effort is made to quote or give credit to the source. The content is no different in idea other than re-writing the content sentence by sentence.
How do I pitch this intellectual property?
I have an intellectual property in the form of a tool that is going to solve a serious problem on the field in American football and revolutionize the way the game is played.
I want a specific NCAA team to test it under a licensing agreement that says they owe me nothing if it doesn't work, and they owe me a substantial one-time fee for unlimited use if it does.
The problem: I have no professional experience in football, and it will be difficult for me to get an audience with the athletic department at any college. After all, no one in the history of football has ever been able to solve this problem, including today's multi-million-dollar coaches; what makes me think I can?
So, in order to get it in the door, I want to pitch it to a private multi-billionaire who has a passion and obsession for doing whatever it takes to put this particular team at the top of the football food chain. He could walk the idea right into the athletic director's office.
Should I have an attorney approach him, or should I do it myself?
Should it be casual, or should it be legal---non-disclosure agreement, etc.?
How should I contact this gentleman?
Intellectual property and outsourcing?
What legal avenues for protecting intellectual property are available to US companies who are outsourcing software to countries like China, India, Russia and the Ukraine?
Right now I have standard NDA and licensing agreements with my US based contractors, which have some enforcement and damages clauses but how do these hold up with in other countries? What do I need to do to protect my source code from appearing out on the internet somewhere?
Intellectual for a software product.
Can a person take legal action against someone if they took a game already owned by a different company such as Electronic Arts with modified content such as decorations, colors and things of that nature which are of their own creation? Claiming the info they put into the game is their intellectual property?
Do I have to turn over a document used for impeachment?
I am a pro se litigant. I asked for a document in discovery that should have been under the exclusive control of the other party and the other side it said it does not exist.
I was able to obtain it legitimately, though their carelessness, and I can show that they should have known it existed. I want to use it at trial to impeach the credibility of their witness, showing that they either withheld discoverable evidence or were wantonly neligent in not searching for it. I also want to introduce it for other primary evidentiary purposes purposes. If they make a request for documents that might include this document, and I do not produce it, am I then barred from using it at trial?
I also have phone records showing calls between me and an opposing party. Do I have to produce those, even if the sole purpose of using them would be to impeach, i.e. if I say ''How much time did we spend on the phone?'' and they say ''Maybe an hour a month'' and I then produce records showing it was more like 10 hours a month? Can I withold those on the assumption that the witness will testify accurately, then use them only if she does not?
This is in an admistrative hearing before the Trademark Board, so it is under the Federal Rules.
