The question is this: can you make a color copy on a copy

The question is this: can you make a color copy on a copy machine in a copy store of a magazine cover or store advertisement catalog for sending to a friend or business contact and does your answer apply internationally when the catalog and magazine is obtained in Washington State (U.S.) and can this be done without permission of the copyright owner? The catalog was sent in the mail and the magazine was sent in the mail also, and it was a gift subscription.This is only a hypothetical situation. Hoping you can forward this to the right attorney type if this is not your forte.

While waiting for my current logo that incorporates my

While waiting for my current logo that incorporates my initials (NIN), my secretary used the Nine Inch Nails (NIN) logo on approximately 3 letters sent out. I have received a letter from a company for copyright infringement. Questions:1) What is my potential liability in that I no longer use the logo and only did for 3 letters?2) How far can a trademark go? I'm sure I'm allowed to use my initials, can I use my initials with a backward N if it is different script and a reasonable person would not associate my logo with Nine Inch Nails?

I am a children's book writer and am hosting a contest that

I am a children's book writer and am hosting a contest that would pair published mentors with people still trying to learn the craft. The contest winners will win a free mentor-ship with the published authors. I am not selling anything nor promoting products or affiliated with any bushiness or company. I am just a children's writer who benefited from a mentor-ship and am paying it forward. This is a very small niche, children's picture book writers. I wanted to call my mentors "Jedi Mentors" and the applicants "PB Padawans." Am I allowed to do this without Disney coming down on me? If no can I use spoof names instead? Thanks Tara
