Question by Kate: How can i use the music i want on a utube video despite the copyright infringement?
I want to make my own music video of a song but due to copyright infringement my audio will be muted or my video will be removed.. i REALLY need to use this song tho…
So i wondered, is there any way to ask from utube to leave it as it is by saying… “no copyright infringement intended” or wtv..
Does anyone know something about it?

Answer by FlashCreations
Yes I do. No matter what you do or put, the evil WMG will remove audio. Plus it is a computer analyzing audio, so it won’t see the No Copyright Infringement Intended Text anyway. And disputing it to Youtube is like trying to yell over fans at a football game. It won’t happen! Sorry.

Can the EPA take pictures of a complex that is a trade secret?

Posted by Judd Robbins under Trade Secrets

Question by Amanda B: Can the EPA take pictures of a complex that is a trade secret?
Here’s the (fake, for school) scnario:
A chemical comopany operates a research complex, and the company considers it a trade secret. So, they deny a request by the EPA to inspect the site.
The EPA then hire a COMMERCIAL photographer to take detailed photos of the complex.

Do you know of any cases that deal with this situation?
They were arial photographs; and it was private property, the photographs were taken of a privately owned and operated research facility.

Best answer:

Answer by Shovel Ready
You didn’t say whether the photographer trespassed to get the pictures. Generally, pictures are legal to take in any public place, because there is no expectation of privacy.

Does D&O insurance protect a director from trade secret related lawsuit?

Posted by Judd Robbins under Trade Secrets

Question by Mandy C: Does D&O insurance protect a director from trade secret related lawsuit?
Hi –

One of the director and officer of our company has signed an NDA (non-disclosure) & a PIA (Proprietary Invention) agreements with his previous employer (she was a director/officer at that company too). She will be working on similar stuff at our company. She is obviously not planning on using any trade-secrets she was privy too :-). That said if she or our company is sued by her former employer for trade secret violations, can the

1. D&O insurance cover the legal costs involved in defending
a lawsuit involving the new director?

2. We don’t have any D&O coverage right now, what kind of coverage should we ask for to deal with any legal issues that may come up with the new director on board?

3. How does the D&O insurance work – what percentage of legal costs are covered? How do you typically file a claim?
I am not concerned with her PRIOR ACTS just to clarify only her ACTS in our current company that may invite a lawsuit from her previous employer.
For example unknowingly using a business process in our company which her former employer may claim as a trade-secret.

1. D&O policies are NOT standardized, so you’ll have to check with a particular form. IN GENERAL, however, the policy only covers lawsuits related to your position as a director or officer AT YOUR CURRENT POSITION. So it’s going to depend wildly on the exact wording of the suit. In any case, DEFENSE COSTS are the only thing covered – any JUDGEMENT is NOT going to be covered, if she’s done something illegal on purpose.

2. lay out to your agent, EXACTLY what you’re looking for. Again, it’s not going to cover her PRIOR ACTS with a PREVIOUS EMPLOYER. The point is, to cover YOUR company, not to cover HER, or to cover her but only with respect to her position with YOUR COMPANY.

3. Usually with D&O, defense costs are INSIDE THE LIMIT, and you have to use the insurance company’s attorney. You have to put the company on notice, even BEFORE there is a claim. And on the application, there’s a question: Are you aware of anything that could potentially result in a claim? And that’s a really important question to answer, that would void coverage if you lie.

How do I file a wrongful death suit in the state of NC?

Posted by Judd Robbins under Medical

Question by tmorrow65: How do I file a wrongful death suit in the state of NC?
Our lawyer is dragging his feet, he’s had the case over 1 year and has 1 expert witness (surgeon) willing to testify for us, but has still not filed suit. If it comes down to it, we only have 6 months left before the statute of limitations runs out. We will need to do something to bring this to court ourselves. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
We don’t really have time to start with a new attorney since 6 months is too short a time to start over.
