Hi, thanks so much. So the statement which you said, that is the release claim which they will need to say, correct? Everything else I had above and below that actual statement can stay as it is within the email I send to him?
You are correct, it is about trademark, and not copyright, sorry was mistaken there.
Within the release clause, you never mentioned that he will also release my company, and any people associated with it and part of the company. Nor does it mention anything about the 2 websites, the one I sold and he has and the other which is filing a claim against him. Shouldn't that be included somewhere?
Is it better to send this message in the first place or just not reply? Don't want him to not agree and somehow use this against me.
Please suggest what I should do just so I am on the clear in all ways possible.
Yes, I sold the website separately and not the whole company under which it was.
Well, if I message back saying what I said before and after the consent agreement, it cant come back to hurt me right? And once agreed, I would not need to worry about anything but if he does not, I cease communication? If he agrees, then I can help him?
Will the strategy above save me from every aspect and not come back to harm me?
Last question before I accept, there does not need to be anything mentioned about Abcd.com or Abcd.net within the statement? Thanks
Can you please confirm this is correct:
