There is no ownership in a name or even in an image.

You may write and publish anything you like so long as what you are saying is true or your opinion.

So by way of example you can say "I have always believed my sister is dishonest." But you cannot say "my sister is a thief" unless that is true.

You do not need permission to use their names in the least bit and if they sue you they will lose and get stuck with a good part of your legal fees.

I have a business and loaded money from RBC. I am in Alberta
I have a business and loaded money from RBC. I am in Alberta Canada. The business was closed last year. I have been trying to contact RBC to discuss to sell the equipement to pay the loan back. However, I really have difficulties to get the hold of their representative. Just make the story short. RBC tell me I have to get their permission first before selling the equipement, but I can not have a chance to discuss anyone from RBC, because everytime they call me would be a different person from collection depoartment. Then They pass the case to a lawyer, and the lawyer didn't contact me either to work out a solution until they start to sue me. I replied the sue and waiting for the trial, but now I recieved message saying that : Further to our correspondence dated May 18, 2018, please be advised that we will be setting down an Application for Summary Judgment and we will provide you with copies of same in due course. I was trying to sell the equipment, but could not get their permission, and they were not response my contact either. Now I said I will pay what I own but not the interest and lawyer fee because it was not my fault. If they think I should pay those, we can get a solution from the judge, but at least I can pay what I own now to avoid more interest. However, as mentioned above, they refused that and " setting down an Application for Summary Judgment" I don't know what was that mean. … read more
