Legality of building a software application to access and write to a database which is created and distributed by a third party?

Let me explain. Let's says company A sells to company B a system that includes an Microsoft Access database in order to run. Is it legal for company C to make a system that connects and writes to to company A's database without asking for company A's permission? I assume that since it's just a regular Access database, that anyone can read, it shouldn't be a problem right?

How else could one represent Tony the tiger?

Just gave a Powerpoint presentation (for free) at a non-profit organization and liberally sampled from Google Images to fill out the slides. Afterwards, several of the attendees heaped glowing praise about the talk upon me, with a subset of them almost literally begging me to sell them the talk so they could give the talk to groups of folks they deal with. I don't want to give them my hard work for free. What must I now do to monetize this opportunity legally without getting into trouble having glommed numerous copyrighted images? For what it's worth, the talk had a nutritional bent and had images of commercial stock images of food item such as Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, Crisco, etc... Does this fall under Fair Use?

Looking for web resource for Canadian court statistics.

How can I locate sources for statistics on the outcomes of Canadian criminal court cases, that include such data as type of defence counsel (ie Legal Aid, from large firm, high profile, new in field, or preferably cost of counsel), amount of time before trial, income/profession of defendant, sentence given, and sentence actually carried out? Does such data even exist? I'm only asking out of curiosity, not for any professional or education project.

Is it legal to charge people to use my home theater (rent it out)?

Is it legal to charge people to use my home theater (rent it out)? I have a home theater. It's pretty friggin' sweet if I do say so myself - gazillion inch screen, state of the art surround system, 12 theater seats, etc. I built it myself. I know that movies always have those warnings at the beginning but I am not charging people to see a specific movie, I am just charging them for use of the room for a specified period of time.

Instead of arresting you, how about some pepper spray?

I'm having an online discussion (which I am trying to keep civil) with a group of people who claim that the police in California have the right to pepper spray anyone who does not obey a police order. How in the world can this be true? I'm not a lawyer - but my gut tells me that there has to be case law to the contrary. Help me out!
