Is it legal to use the words 'We are the ONLY

Hi,Is it legal to use the words 'We are the ONLY ones...' in our marketing:"We are the ONLY ones who do xyz." (even though there are many other companies that do the same thing as you do)?What other statements are we allowed to legally make without substantiation? "We are the best..." "We are the leading manufacturer of x..." "We are the #1 makers of..." ?Thanks

I saw your answer too late, and am sending a note to Just answer so I can rate it 5 stars.Followup: so what happens if plaintiff sent it to wrong address (they had the correct address in their complaint and on all notices) and we received it too late to take action (they sold off the storage during that time).If clerk was supposed to, what happens if they goofed? Below is the question, which you already answered.In California, does a creditor have a legal obligation to timely inform the debtor that the creditor has obtained a judgment? The complaint was served on the debtor, but not defended, as the money was owed. The notice of judgment was sent to an incorrect address (creditor knew correct address as it was even in their complaint).We are the debtor.This relates to a sale of storage (self-storage firm) items wherein if the debtor found out in time about the judgment (and the amount), he could have called to settle. The goods were sold at auction 45 days later without proper advertising of the event.

Hi,I operate a local news site in NJ that is dependent upon subscriber support. We came up with the idea of cross-promoting with local businesses to give away unique items to our paid subscribers. For the past month we've been advertising a giveaway (a one-of-a-kind skateboard made by a local company) that will be awarded after a drawing next week. I am reading over some of the stuff that's written about contests online, and I don't want to run afoul of the law to host this project. We've already had lots of other businesses inquire about how they could be partners in these areas, too, so we think it's a good opportunity to reward our subscribers with unique opportunities. Is there any way we can do this without getting into trouble or being told we're running an illegal lottery?

quot;If I copy team graphics - say Cleveland cavaliers and Golden State Warriors and make a advertisement for posting on facebook, can I do that without worry about copyright infringement?" Same question for MLB teams, NFL teams - soccer teams - national and club level - it seems unreasonable to have to seek permission from each team.
