I am working on story song books for children. Each story is

I am working on story song books for children. Each story is put to the the tune of well known children's songs. For instance, I have one story put to the tune of the "Let It Go" song from the Disney movie Frozen. Would I have to get some sort of official permission just to refer to the title of the song? I wouldn't be using the lyrics from the original song or printing any sheet music. I would only be stating that my song is "put to the tune of "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen." ???

I have commissioned a package designer to design the box

I have commissioned a package designer to design the box for my product. When he completed the design he transferred all IP rights and copyright of the design of the box over to me. I have a copy of this agreement. This was back in August of 2015. Last month I discovered a similar knife set being sold on Amazon with the EXACT same design as my box. The only difference is they removed my logo and replaced it with theirs. It is this company - Oxgord.com which manufacturers a variety of products. I sent Oxgord a C&D but they simply ignored me. What is my recourse?

We have had the phrase “American Lifeguard Association”

For years, we have had the phrase “American Lifeguard Association” trademark for lifeguard training, and we see that someone has recently created the “United States Lifeguard Association.” We feel the name is ***** ***** to our trademark name. Do we have any legal foundation to object to this, since words “United States” and “American” are such interchangeable words? Could it fall under dilution of our trademark in their attempt to sell their products, or some other possible violation?
