Q. In NYC, Signed agreement with a company without reading everything. Owner info they wrote is incorrect. Can we void?
A: Were there witnesses other than "they" that the termination fee was included after you signed? If so then the potential for breach is increased as a factor allowing you to withdraw. The matters of dates, titles may be corrected as an administrative act. It is presumed that a person signing an agreement has read the agreement. Your suggestion that you did not read would not likely be persuasive. See an attorney.
Q. Hi. I would like to use the name feasty? Am I allowed to use it?
A: Is "feasty" a made up word? Your use in commerce to identify the source of goods or services is use as a trademark. If you want nation wide protection then contact an attorney with Trademark experience who can file an application. Cost including the Federal Trademark Office filing fee and interaction with the Trademark office will be about $700-1500. See an attorney.
