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? This article in the Google Blog strongly suggests that trademark law prohibits me from using (in a non-commercial context like a post on MeFi) the verb "to google" to mean "to search on the Yahoo search engine." 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?

The RIAA at La Grange (aka Mitch Bainwol Left Chicago)

I own a copy of Tres Hombres by ZZ Top. I'd like to get it into mp3 format so that I can listen to it in the car, etc. The problem is that the copy I own is on a record. Assuming I download with bittorrent, and then the RIAA comes after me, can I use the defense that I actually already owned it, so downloading could not be considered criminal? Would it be different if I owned a record rather than a CD? In other words, can you legally download the mp3 of an album you already own?

Who will take care of my kid if I go nuts?

Depression: My depression is outpacing my doctors' (yes, plural) ability to control it, and the time has come for something more than a will and a divorce settlement. My primary concern is my son's welfare. He is in his mother's custody, but she has her own mental issues and my parents would hock their souls if given the opportunity to take him from her. I know I need a lawyer, and I will be making an appointment the next time I emerge from the 'dark place'. I want to cover as many bases as possible, like ensuring disability insurance payments continue, the runaround with Social Security is handled, mental illness clauses in insurance policies, legal expenses if I commit a crime, etc. My question is: What else should I consider that even a good lawyer could miss? Also, how much might this cost? [more inside]

i will, now, drive 55

I got an extremely expensive traffic ticket (my first! and $632!) for doing 97 in a 75 on a lonely stretch of road outside of Lovelock, Nevada. I paid the ticket, and asked the court (and the ticketing officer, at that point) about traffic school; they both said that the points wouldn't transfer to California or go on my record, but as far as traffic school to lower insurance went, it was between me and my insurance company, and they'd get in touch with me. However, can't I do something pre-emptively to keep this from going on my insurance record? Or am I screwed? I paid the fine in mid-June, just before it was due (took a little while to save the money); the ticket was issued in mid-May.

Green-card marriage: risk vs. reward.
