We are a publisher. One of our authors has been missing ten
We are a publisher. One of our authors has been missing for over ten years. Her book is still in print and I know that her daughter has been receiving the checks and depositing them. I don't know if she is depositing them into the authors account of the daughters account. We don't have a problem with the daughter getting the money since we always continue to pay a deceased author's royalties to their heirs. Our problem is the heirs have never contacted us and we have no way of contacting them. Now we would like to publish the mother's work as a condensed version. Can we do this without a contract with the heirs?
A company formed in '06 as an LLC in VA. They collected
A company formed in '06 as an LLC in VA. They collected investor funding but the business did not move forward. In '08, that business was no longer an LLC and no longer attempted to conduct any business. In 2016, I was given a business plan from that '06 company by one of the original investors and copied a few pages of legal jargon from theirs into docs we are using in a new LLC; parts of the operating agreement and subscription agreement. Completely separate businesses, no relation to each other at all. The owner of the '06 business caught wind that I used some of the language in his old agreements and is now attempting to say we have violated copyright laws by copying the legal jargon which he paid counsel to draft for him in '06. My question is... if those agreement were from a now defunct LLC, can this guy sue my company for copyright violation for use of the old agreements from an LLC which has been out of business since '08?
