How do I pick the right tenants to sublet (or swap for) my apartment, and how do I help them feel at home?

Have you done a short-term sublet (or housing swap)? If you were the renter: how did you evaluate applicants, and how did you help your subletter feel at home? If you were the subletter: what worked, and what do you wish the renter had done for you or told you? I'll be subletting my apartment in NYC but I'd love to hear from people in all areas & situations. [more inside]

How long do you have to deliver a service?

I purchased a service to deliver traffic to one of my web sites. I know it reeks of scam, but I was curious. That's beside the point. The terms of service don't state anything about the timeframe in which that traffic will be delivered. It's come in dribs and drabs (then entire purchase would take years, literally, to be delivered). And their stats do not match mine. Every single day shows them delivering more traffic than my whole site gets. That said, I have two questions. 1) What is the legal basis for timely delivery of such a service, given that timeliness is not discussed in their terms at all. There ought to be a reasonable assumption of how long they have to perform their service, right? 2) Since legal action is not a reasonable option (it would cost more to get a refund than the refund is worth), what are some ideas for completely legal ways I could put a spotlight on this company's potentially fraudulent but certainly terrible service?

Laid off with no equity, as promised

I've just been laid off by my employer, small tech start-up, and a few fishy things linger in the air that I'm looking for guidance on. The first is that I was promised equity come Jan. 1 in exchange for being paid slave wages for half of this year. I have this promise on paper. After being laid off, I'm told I'm no longer eligible.

Possession & the Art of Strategy: Legal advice and karma adjustment?

This happened to somebody I care about, who could really use a break. I'm trying to help him figure out his options. Money is the biggest factor, the cheapest solution is best.

He gets pulled over for littering (flicking a butt out the window). [more inside]

If something is sent to you in error can the sender demand it back?

LegalFilter: A laptop was sent for repair under warranty to Gateway. According to one of their customer service policies, if the repair isn't returned to you within 14 days they'll send you a new one. This time period passed and a new laptop was shipped out. A few days later, the old laptop (now fully repaired) was shipped in error. If a person is now in possession of both laptops because of an error in the vendor's shipping, does the vendor have legal ground to demand one of them back? This is in the US.

Is Income Tax Illegal in the USA?

Is there a law requiring you to pay Income Tax? I saw this video over at youtube, from The FreedomtoFacisim.com website. They say that Income tax is illegal and there are no laws. They even mention that the 16th admendment isn't valid via the supreme court. Ok, are these guys wackos? IRS has guns, so they make the rules, thats all I know.

Trademarks: Can I google you on Yahoo?

Does trademark law really offer any basis for the practice of using legal threats to prevent a trademark from becoming common usage?

Is this so? [more inside]

Music podcast legalities help

I have, over the past several years, become the individual that lots of people come to for music suggestions and to talk about music (most metal, but some other stuff). Much like the fine folks at Pandora. So I had the great thought of starting a podcast. However: Mayhaps I'm missing something, but I can't find anything online that spells out how to start a music podcast legally. (More after the jump) [more inside]

What can I expect in my wrongfull dismissal case?

Canada Labor Law: wrongfull dismissal - suing, what can I expect? I have a very strong case for my end of employment a few weeks ago. I was dismissed with clearly no reasonable cause. The law firm I am working with has sent my former employer a certified letter, first step in my case. I was given only one week salary at my dismissal. This employer came to get me from at my previous job, bonified my first refusal and I accepted the second offer. I had been working at this previous job for more then 3 years. There are many missing details here for anyone to accurately comment and I realize that. I am looking for the steps I should expect in this legal battle as this employer received the certified letter signed by the law firm sent last week and has not responded. He is basically ignoring my lawyerrs request for compensation on my behalf. What should I expect?
