I made a coat ( my own design) for myself using licensed Chicago Cubs fabric. Many people want me to make one using their favorite Pro or College Team fabric. Can I legally sell them if I include a disclaimer that it is not an official product of that team, etc.
Thanks
I saw that there is a fee. I am not sure if this advice would be enough for me to move forward. I have customers waiting.

According to the site, I was to pay the fee if satisfied. Does that mean that I pay before I see answer? I have never used this site, just asking
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I would probably prefer a phone conversation except I can't talk right now. Does that mean that it would be $59 plus the legal zoom fee?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am not able to speak on the phone now. Do I re-contact through the site later?

Call Request
This is not my offer, but the site's. The site allows the expert to opt out of the call request, and I must respectfully ***** ***** you want it. Do not worry - other experts receive the request as well, and the first available expert calls. They will also have your question and my replies to build upon, so nothing will be lost.
Yes, as I understand it, the $59 is in addition to the Q&A fee.
Overall Fee
JustAnswer experts only answer questions and do not handle billing, but you can contact customer service - they are really helpful and can explain all billing issues.
The way it works is that the amount is taken out (as I understand it) is that the amount is taken out and placed into your JA account. However it is only "released" once you rate positively.
I do want to mention that you are not going to like the answer, likely. But the expert does not get credit unless you rate positively. Therefore, please do not shoot the messenger.
Finally note you are on JustAnswer.com, not LegalZoom.
Let me know when/if you wish to proceed.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
