Hello, my name is Kendell! Happy to help! Please remember that this is a tool for information only, we cannot give you legal advice and thus cannot tell you what to do or not (since that is prohibited).This should not be considered a attorney-client relationship. Also, please reserve your feedback until we have fully answered your question -- I will stick with you until we do. However, I must warn that it sounds like your request is one that may require premium service/offline work.

As a first question, do you know who the copyright owner is, or do you need that to be researched? Also, have you already located the copyright registration associated with your question?

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.
