Opp law So i was reviewing the 2012 opp laws on this guy's

Biz Opp lawSo i was reviewing the 2012 biz opp laws on this guy's site mikeyounglaw.com/ftc-business-opportunity-rule-disclosure-forms/ and had some questions since things seemed to have changed since i was last involved in anything called a 'biz opp' a while ago.What's a biz opp exactly?Is an educational how to course or a money making system taught in a video course a biz opp according to these laws?I would like to open a website that sells video courses on how to make money by doing different online business strategies and systems.So for example: a make money online system would sell "System for Starting a Business Online by Blogging..." So the question is would i be selling "bizz opps"? or is a "biz opp" something where I'm selling an actual business someone would buy vs. a "how to" which is what i'm selling?I would also become an affiliate of others who sell video courses and software related to facilitating making money online and was wondering what issues i would run into there.Also related - if trading systems (ie. Forex, Stocks, Options) as sold as "Trade for a living" or potentially "start your own trading business" or " start your own trading company" by learning this trading trading system... would i encounter any biz op law issues?Thanks. I'm looking to get clarity so i can move ahead without making problems in the process.

How do I proceed and respond to the Franchise Board to make this situation go away as I am not responsible to the companies debts.Thanks in advance,

My father passed away in Jan, 2014, in PA, he made me

My father passed away in Jan, 2014, in PA, he made me beneficiary and left me $8,000 and had me as one of his two Executors in his will I declined the money in writing to the attorney and he submitted a Renunciation form in Feb, 2014 stating this which I signed because I declined being the Executor. I live in Fla.The estate was very small under $17k total.Fast forward to today, 2017, I receive a Family Settlement Agmt. stating that all the assets of estate have been liquidated and med bills and debts have been paid and the Executor is requesting that the estate be closed.Also confirming that I still am declining any monies left remaining.My question is: what happens if a bill or issue comes up at some later date? After the estate is closed. Thank you

This is really two questions but they are related so

This is really two questions but they are related so submitting as one. We sent a direct mail piece to a company in 2011 and the company responded to the marketing piece and we activated their account. We sent them a follow-up letter and subsequent renewal invoices each year afterwards. This year, they told us that they ordered by mistake and never intended to order the service and that the renewals just went directly to accounting and were paid, by check.We did provide a service over those years - though we did not interact directly with the customer. So, it is completely possible what they are saying is true but on our end we provided a service (advertising) to them and they continued to pay.We cancelled their account but they are now requesting a full refund for all years since 2011 and are threatening a lawsuit if they don't get it. On top of that, they submitted something to the BBB calling us a 'scam' and that information is now public and damaging our reputation. Our mailers had clear disclaimers that our offer was an invitation and we can prove that.We feel, at most, we would refund a single year as a gesture of good will. But, that will not remove the public profile from the BBB that will continue to damage the company reputation. And, there is a cost for that.So, I'm looking for some advice.My gut tells me to just off a partial refund in exchange for removal of the damaging item on the BBB website. If not, o refund will be issued. But, it seems they may want to advance to 'court' as they stated in one message.What is the process for scheduling mediation if the company is in another state? Based on the limited facts I provided, what do you think about the case?

I am giving a presentation to a group of people regarding

I am giving a presentation to a group of people regarding the new OSHA rules on prohibition of discrimination/discouragement against the reporting of injuries/illnesses.As part of that, I will be talking about some employee drug testing matters. But I am not an attorney. I have on the other hand done a tremendous amount of research on the topic and been responsible for this in the past with employers I've worked for.I suppose that background probably isn't relevant to your answer, but.....Might you be able to provide any disclaimer language that I should include? And regardless, should the disclaimer be just in the front of the presentation? I'm preparing a PowerPoint deck.Thank you.
