I signed a contract for $36,000 with a company called

I signed a contract for $36,000 with a company called Multiview to do online marketing services. After two months, I have discovered that this company is likely to be fraudulent. I have not seen any uptick in web traffic. I have a small company and this is too much money to waste. I would like advise on how I can get out of the contract or the consequences if I break the contract and discontinue the $30,000 of remaining payments. I am a California based sole proprietorship and Multiview is a Texas based corporation

Question I have a royalty contract with a company that was

QuestionI have a royalty contract with a company that was recently dissolved. Is the contract still enforceable?I have had a contract with a company (XYZ Company) since Sept 2013. I licensed the right and recipes of a specialty food company with 13 company owned locations. The conditions of my contract required me to pay a 4% royalty, to get approval on any new geographical locations, in addition to paying a license fee for any expansions.I was told that the “Licensor” had changed the name of the company along with making several modifications to their method and strategy for doing business. They offered me a partnership with the new company if I would assume the name and come on board to help them grow. I opted not to pursue their offer.I did some checking with the state that they are incorporated in and was surprised to find out the company that I had my agreement with was dissolved. In addition, I discovered that the new company is in one of their General Managers names.The following exempts are from the contract and I am wondering if I am still bound to my contract with XYZ Company since it legally no longer exists?“THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT ("Agreement") is a legally binding contract by the undersigned, entered into as of this SEPTEMBER 11, 2013, by and between MY COMPANY, LLC, a MY STATE corporation located at MY ADDRESS (The “Licensee") and THEIR COMPANY, LLC a THEIR STATE corporation located at THEIR ADDRESS. (The “Licensor") This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions on which Licensee may use THEIR COMPANY's recipes, methods and techniques to produce and sell a food product. (The “licensed Property”)”“SeverabilityShould a court of competent jurisdiction rule one or more provisions or parts of provisions of this agreement invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions or parts of provisions will remain in full force and effect.”
