I have a translation company. We were asked to translate a few comic books, which we did. The customer has not paid us, and is not responding to any communication (they once responded saying they have no money right now and offered to pay less than half owed, but not until next year, and we declined).It has been over a year now. The translated books are for sale at Amazon, iTunes, etc. Can we claim that we own the content since it is an original creation by us until we receive a payment, and therefore issue a take down notice to prevent them from selling the books? Obviously they are not going to pay us, so can we block them from making money using the translations?

I had a defamation case. The other side filed for Dismiss since they believed there was no publication. I lost in the district court, the court of appeals and in the Utah Supreme court. Can I appeal in the Federal court?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?Customer: UtahJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I don't have an attorney and don't want to have. That is why I am asking you.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes. 1. I know from the company (Progressive0 agent they contacted the state agent, but the attorneys of Progressive rejected. Then, I relied on the fact that they sent me the letter via e-mail and my e-mail is insecure. Also, I insist that the e-mail is a form of publication. In my case, the letter made me a criminal, so I don't need to prove damages.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Corporate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I lost my case in California Small Claims Court. I loaned my friend money for business and told the Judge it was an Oral Agreement and all I have are text messages, but the Judge did not want to look at my evidence that I was ready to present and he said I must have a written agreement.Actually I am not very clear on his explanation on his ruling and why he does not want to look at my evidence.I understand Plaintiff can not appeal and Judges decision is final. If I am confused by the judges findings, am I allowed to ask why? Is there something I can do?

I am a pro se plaintiff in a case that has been moved from

I am a pro se plaintiff in a case that has been moved from small claims to district court. I was sent a notice that there will be a conference to discuss discovery schedule. I may be interested in a settlement agreement, but I would insist that the settlement agreement have no confidentiality clause and that the agreement be available to the public. I am not looking to force the defendant to profess liability. How do I make sure that the settlement agreement becomes public record and doesn't get buried? How and where would it need to be filed? It is me against a very big entity, but it is not for much money. My case is mainly for principle and fighting injustice. Thank you.
