I have to pay to have him testify against me? Pshaw.

TherapyContractModificationFilter: The contract my shrink wants me to sign has a paragraph saying that if he is asked to testify in a court case involving me (even if it's for the other side), I have to pay him.

Does the man disaprove of ROM sites?

I was wondering about the exact legality of distributing video game ROMS on the internet? Is it legal? Does the "delete it in 24 hours" statement really shield a site from legal action? All ROMS sites seem really shady with a lot of layers of pages to go through to get to their content. Some insist it is perfectly fine, while others disagree I searched and only found these two threads. Thanks!

Names changed to protect privacy?

Scenario: Linda, an author, is at a party. Linda says that she is writing a book about near-death experiences. Sarah, a guest at the party, says, "Oh, I had one!" and proceeds to recount her experience to the assembled guests. Linda finishes writing her book and includes Sarah's story in it, using Sarah's real first name and some details from Sarah's life (profession, husband's first name and profession, Sarah's religious background). Is Linda legally allowed to do this without changing Sarah's name in the published book? Did Sarah waive her right to privacy by telling the story at a party? What about Sarah's personal details, which were not revealed at the party, but known to the author because of their shared social circle? Legal citations are appreciated.

Lack of rectal exams = malpractice?

Does the fact that the patient is part of a population that has an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer matter? [more inside]

UK will condition

I am watching ITV's Midsomer Murders at the moment, wherein Detective Chief Inspector John Nettles just heard that a 20 year old student Aidan is told he will inherit £100,000 if he reaches 21 as a non smoker. Are these Will clauses legitimate in UK law? Or are they a convenient dramatic device, long superceded in legal practice?

Help me write a legal document for house-sitting.

Recently, a nice-sounding girl posted in a local forum, asking for help over Christmas. She needed someone to come to her house and feed and administer a pill to her cats while she's away. Fearing an unscrupulous individual may try to take advantage of her (as this is a public forum), and genuinely feeling generous and helpful this Christmas season, I offered myself for help. One small thing: I want to prepare a legal document ahead of time to ensure that both of us are protected in the event of a break-in or other calamity, and I need help! [more inside]

What do "publishing rights" entail?

What do "publishing rights" entail? Game maker Acclaim is selling off publishing rights to over 200 games, and I was wondering what I'd get if I bought the rights to one. Basically: If I set up some kind of collective donation site, and we bought the rights to a game, could I then creative commons or public domain license it's content, or just the production (DVD, CD, etc)?

What if my non-US citizen fiancée is denied entry into the US at the airport?

My fiancée and I are travelling to her country this Christmas to visit some friends and her family. I am a US citizen and she is Moldovan. She is a grad student at my university here in the US. As she is from a non-EU Eastern European country, there is a chance that she may not be allowed entry into the country due to some technicalities, even though she will have received another valid F1 visa. If she is denied entry in the airport, what can I do? Am I allowed to see her, arrange for her flight home or contact a lawyer before they force her out? [more inside]

How does copyright law work with RSS feeds? Can they be republished?

What are the legal implications of re-publishing full-text entries from another site's RSS feed? Planet sites do it for mostly legitimate purposes, and spam-logs do it for, well, spammy purposes. But are there any laws that apply? The US copyright code doesn't assume the information is already freely available on the internet, so it seems like a grey area. [more inside]

How Can I Use Wikipedia's Content?

I would like to start a Comic Book Encyclopedia (Which I am calling, for lack of a better name, "Heropedia"), using mediawiki as the engine. I've been a comics fan forever, and a contributor to wikipedia. It's a great project, and I dig it a lot. However, I think branching off into a seperate project would be good for a subject with as much ephemeral information as comic books. My question is, can I use the infromation in Wikipedia pertaining to comic books, as long as the text of my site is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License? [more inside]
