We've been in business since 2014 under the name "Yotpo"

We've been in business since 2014 under the name "Yotpo" within the digital advertising field. We registered a trademark for our name in April 2017. We were recently sent a cease and desist letter by another company based in Israel using the same name Yotpo, for a marketing company. They claim first use in commerce in 2012, however their US incorporation document says Feb 2015. Do we have any protection here, and how should we respond to the letter they sent us.

I have a question about a situation I'm in. I was told last

Hello. I have a question about a situation I'm in. I was told last year, on record (have a voice recording, too), that my business was being grandfathered into my location. This year, however, the board who said that I was being grandfathered in is opening my location up for other businesses to bid on. Isn't this the opposite of being grandfathered in??JA: What state are you in?

I have a question about purchasing a business. A Landlord

I have a question about purchasing a business.A Landlord owns a local strip plaza with four tenants close to my house. The Plaza contains a Chinese Food Place, an Phone Repair Shop, A Barber Shop, and a Pizzeria. The Landlord is the owner of the Pizzeria and is looking to sell the pizzeria.I am looking to purchase the Pizzeria and want a 20 year lease. He is only looking to give me a 10 year lease. I feel more comfortable protecting my investment with a 20 year lease, however I think there is great potential at this pizzeria. With that said, I would be willing to do a 10 year lease IF it is possible to protect myself this way.I'd like to have a contingency in the agreement that states after my lease is over (the initial 10 years), he can not re-open a pizzeria in the plaza for an additional 10 years, as well as he can not sell the Property to another Business Owner who plans on having a pizzeria there for another 10 years.The reason I am asking for this is because if he won't give me a 20 year lease. I don't want to build up this existing pizzeria to a gold mine, and then he says I'll just reopen after my lease is done, OR have another Pizzeria Owner say he will just reopen in my location. I want to protect myself somehow. Is this possible to do, and will it hold up in court?Thank You!Dominic
