Copyright question here. Let's say I secure the permission

Copyright question here.Let's say I secure the permission from Peter Dinklage, the Game of Thrones star. Let's say I get permission to use his quote, only his quote that says, "I love animals, all animals. I wouldn't hurt a cat or a dog, or a chicken or a cow".Am I allowed by law to mention that he's a Game of Thrones star. Or is that crossing the line of what's allowed? Does that require permission from Game of Thrones company themselves? Or is that allowed because it's a reference?Thanks so much!!!Ron Jr.

I am self employed but need to start getting w2s so I can do

I am self employed but need to start getting w2s so I can do certain things in life. I am involved in teaching (private instructor not affiliated with a school, I get paid by my individual students) and have always thought I might start a non-profit. However, I was to direct the non-profit and not ave a board and stuff cause I've seen that be awful for various art galleries I've known. Is there a way to do a non profit and have me be the one who runs it?JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: It is not in existence yet. I live in NYC but might keep my residence in CA if it is helpful. Or I could go NY.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Why do I need to minimize you?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, nothing. Operating as a private music teacher right now (not a non-profit). No business license eitherJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I guess not.

Thanks, I am not sure where to start. I started a non-profit

Thanks, ***** ***** not sure where to start. I started a non-profit and paid for the set-up personally. As well as raised over 90% of the funds that have come in and have been one of the principals from the very start and fully active. There have been some conflicts with one of the members. The member I gave this to. Anyway, he has been using the funds for pet projects but that is not my biggest concern. I have a client that raised $20,000.00 and was late in getting the money over but he has been late 3 years in a row. Our non-profit had no vested interest and no money out of pocket but last week one of the board members called this person and threatened him with a lawsuit if a check was not sent immediately. Well, it was, my question is would I have any legal ability to blow the whistle on the operations behind teh scenes. They are opperating in Tennessee and have been for the last 3 years and have not registered and my office and company is still directly affiliated with the non profit and in addition to this. I own 100% the trademark to the non-profit and the logo as well as the URL. This argument had me tell them I won't work under this kind of leadership and I was also independently told that if I remotely associate myself with the non-profit that I will have heck to pay. The guy I gave this to is the person behind this, we served together in Desert Storm and well, he has not held a job I believe in 12+ years. Also, I personally handled the structuring of the organization. I own three different companies in two different countries, not that this really applies to this but I wanted to give you a little about me that I understand the legal side a bit. In short, I want to serve them with a cease and desist and do it quite aggressive. I don't want any money for this, not in the least, just that I have given 5 years of my time and the organization is not being run under the guidelines and people are taking advantage of the funds to personally finance personal events. With being active the entire time, responsible for raising over 90% of the funds over the years, 100% ownership of the trademark, logo and URL. Do I have the ability to put a halt to the organization and independently make changes?JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: Colorado, out of my office in LittletonJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes, they have filed the taxes on time but they have been conducting business out of Tennessee for the last three years without registering in that state and have been 100% conducting business in that state.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, but we all served together in a special operations unit during desert storm and Mike Paul has gotten a little rogue and most of the board members have stepped down or just quit. I was going to do the same but I have the most time and personal money out of pocket in this. In a perfect world, I would be able to put a halt to this if I have the legal right and change the board to a more conducive group. Mike Paul has even neglected adhering by the rules regarding rotating every 3 years and independently assumed the position of President and Executive Director. There is just too much put into this to sit back and watch it implode

I am looking for small business General Liability insurance

I am looking for small business General Liability insurance for my home based business ( a 144 sq ft room is all I use). My sales are 600k per year, I need to cover 30k in inventory and 1million per incident, 2 million aggregate.No customers visit my home, and I sell phones on ebay and locally. I am looking to be covered in the case of say- I expect an order of phones by Monday and they are two weeks late, causing the customer to lose their valuable customer and suing me for their loss of business. I want a general liability policy that will cover this, so I don't have to get expensive errors and omissions insurance. I found hiscox general liability for $478 a year, but it doesn't cover shipping related issues (this is around the price I want to spend).I would like to find a home owner's insurance that would allow me to have both on one policy, or a homeowner's policy with a endorsement for my business. My question is three fold.1. Where should I look for a general liability insurance for my situation, that will cover shipping related liability.2. Can you recommend a home owners insurance that will do both (or allow an endorsement)?3. My current home owner's insurance dropped me when I tried to increase my business coverage under my endorsement (with no prior warning) is there an official way to appeal this? I am located in Texas. Thanks!

I was given an answer to a similar question last night,

I was given an answer to a similar question last night, however it may have lacked some of the following details and would like this question answered now that I have provided perhaps a more organized background for the consideration of my question. I am forming an LLC for an online consulting business, as well as developing a couple additional websites for the purpose of affiliate marketing. These additional websites ultimately tie into the consulting. The main site will be a blog, forum, and appointment generator. Revenue will come from any advertising that may be associated to the site once it gains traffic and through contracted consulting. I am building a website to list businesses for sale, and as a affiliate lead generating site for business brokers. Revenue will come from advertising space paid by business owners, and pay per lead affilates. I will have the site linked to the consulting site where I plan to look for opportunities to add value to those businesses by consulting on operations and marketing strategies. The other site will be an affiliate loan leads generator. This site will also be linked to the other sites as it will be gathering information as leads for business loan institutes. I currently live in South Carolina. I have been planning my business strategies for some time, however not until I made the decision to leave my salary position and give my full focus on my business did I plan, or research much on the time of expedition of the LLC as well as what benefits may be available forming in another state. I have looked into Nevada as it appears to have all the protections I would want in a llc, they also offer the series in the llc. I plan on all sites to operate under one llc, and given my interpretation of the series see that as an opportunity to protect each site individually under the operating LLC Name. Is my interpretation correct? Also given I did not research the expedition of South Carolina llc formation, which is 35 days/25 if rushed, the nevada expedition can be done as fast as 2 hours for a fee with normal processing 6-7 days and for an additional $50 it can be done in two. The state filing fee is less than South Carolina as well. The expedition process is important to me, as I wish to set up and fund a business account asap, and want to launch everything under the protection of an llc. I have some cushion financially, but it is limited. All this being said I will be a single owner for this formation. The only potential change I can for see in the next year would to bring in a profit sharing partner. I plan to outsource any work to freelancers rather than have employees for now. Given the information I provided is forming in Nevada a good consideration?
