The IRS, Paypal, John Doe--and ME???

I just received an email from PayPal notifying me that my account information has been requested by the IRS. I rarely use the account--it has very little activity other than the occasional small purchase (ebay, etc) and small ebay sale. It doesn't seem like a scam email, but I have no idea why my info would be requested? Should I get a lawyer involved or is this just a large-scale email I should ignore? Here is the email with my name removed (however, the case does refer to John Doe): [more inside]

What do I need to do to get in the clear with my car title?

This september I was given a car by a friend of mine who was moving out of state (the car and I are in Ohio).

Declaring Next of Kin?

Is it possible to legally declare someone your next of kin or the equivalent? I know that you can make a will for estates, and medical care proxies and the like, but next of kin make decisions about funeral arrangements and other issues and I'm not sure how to go about covering all the miscellaneous bases out there. I'm in the US/NYS, gathering info before talking to a lawyer about specifics.

How do I clear celebrity photos easily and effortlessly?

"We need to use that picture of that pregnant singer from the cover of Mary Claire in the next show," says my boss. "What's my budget," I ask? There's a pause. My budget is nothing. "Can't you just get permission? As a promotion?" I make a note. "When do we need it by?" "Yesterday. As long as you get me the release by Friday, we're good." Yes, this is my job. Anyone have tips on successfully licensing photos of celebrities... for as little money and hassle as possible? [more inside]

Letting a subletter use your internet connection

If you let a subletter use the internet connection that's in your name, what are ideas for holding them to a promise that they won't do things that could get you sued by the RIAA (or arrested)? Is there any legally meaningful way to notify an ISP that Person X, not you, will be the connection's sole user for X months? This will be wired DSL (no wifi).

Can a cop legally do anything if he sees my girlfriend and I moving from the back seat to the front seat?

So my girlfriend and I were hanging out in her back seat. Nothing with sex was happening, but then once we finished kissing she moved from the back seat to the front seat. As she is moving a cop notices her and comes over and looks at us. She rolls down her window and the cop makes a comment about her moving. He then asks for her license. She gives it to him. He glares at me (I'm still in the back) and asks her if its the correct name and address. She says yes. The cop gives her a lecture about how perception is important and then goes off. Can he legally do anything?
