Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here..
I assume you did not disclose your ownership of these in the bankruptcy filing
You should have your attorney file an amended schedule B and C to exempt what they can.
Is your bankruptcy case still open?
No. It's a done deal as of last May 2012.
What are these copyrights worth?
I don't know. They're not worth anything if not used.
did the person make you an offer?
The trustee in your bankruptcy case needs to review the value and any exemptions you may be entitled to. If the value is greater than what can be protected, then the trustee will decide if it is worth liquidation (or offering you a buyout to purchase them if you wanted to keep them).
We (Alzo's former manager who owns some of the rights) just started talking to this person. Nothing has been done or agreed to yet.
did you have any other questions
There is no cash value on the copyright.
well, it has some value..
so, your steps would be to give the info to the trustee, and they will make a determination if there is anything to pursue.
You should reopen the case to file the amended schedules, since failure to disclose assets is bankruptcy fraud, and it will be better if you notified the court, rather than them finding out
did you have any other questions?
I see you have stepped out.let me know if you have any other qestions.
Do you have any other questions?
