The gym I'm going to ask me if I can email them before/after
The gym I'm going to ask me if I can email them before/after pictures and my weight loss story for it's corporate's internal testimony. Staffs are really nice and helpful so I don't mind to do that. Since those are my personal images, i don't want the company uses my images improperly such as post them on its website/magazine etc.What kind of disclaimer languages I should use in the email so I can protect myself? Thanks.
This is a two part question related to Directv's NFL Sunday
This is a two part question related to Directv's NFL Sunday Ticket. Issue: Our business (a bar) received a letter from a third party counsel, stating that they were retained by Directv and that they audited our business (there was a picture of a screen included) and they've determined that we've shown Sunday Ticked NFL Game in a commercial setting through a residential account. The person (our partner) who purchased the package for about $500 thought that since this is internet based, he could put a game on a big screen (we only have one screen and generally do not show anything on it, but occasional movies). He was not wise and called the counsel telling them that he could pay whatever the difference was, since he didn't know any better. They asked for $14k to settle.Question 1: Is it normal for outside counsel to contact any business that potentially violates contract with Directv and how do we establish legitimacy of such third party? Would have thought Directv itself would contact first.Question 2: How much of a leg do they have to stand on ($14k for showing a couple of games sounds ridiculous) if they actually sue and wouldn't it be possible to settle directly with Directv?Appreciate any help.
