Legal Answers
14 Questions Answered
Q. Motion to Vacate or Appeal?
A: Hi. Attorneys are prohibited from soliciting in the Ask a Lawyer section. However, a search in the directory based on your needs should help you find good options for this matter. Thanks.
Q. I gave the rights to a game I designed to a scammer who is not producing. Can I design a new game with the same theme?
A: Ah, what an interesting legal area! Games-related cases date back quite a bit. On the analog side, you have Parker Brothers (now Hasbro) fighting to protect Monopoly by imitators like anti-Monopoly and Ghettopoly over decades. On the digital side, you can all all the way back to Pong for video game copyright cases! Based on the (very) limited information offered, yours may be a potentially involved and complex matter with multiple legal paths to consider. An attorney would need to, among other things, review what agreements you have with the publisher, the extent to which the publisher may have acted in bad faith or failed to perform, and even what your design and creative plans and the potential that the publisher's intellectual property rights preclude those plans. As a "gamer" who knows a thing or two about how the industry intersects with IP protection, I can assure you that no attorney can adequately answer your question based on the limited information that you have provided. Consequently, you would have to spend some meaningful time with experienced counsel detailing the background leading up to your current situation and objectives.
Q. After 16 years being completely separated, how can my ex and I get divorced, easily and cheaply?
A: If you can agree on the terms of the divorce - e.g., equitable distribution, spousal maintenance, custody if relevant, etc. - through private negotiations with each other, then you may be able to proceed with the formal divorce process in an uncontested capacity. This can essentially amount to no more than filing the standard set of docs, without any need for steps like discovery, completing statements of net worth, and conferences with the court and between attorneys. It may even be possible to facilitate an uncontested process with only one party having an attorney, or perhaps the attorney acting as a neutral element, involved only to draft the settlement agreement and file with the court. Ultimately, coming to an agreement privately can amount to considerable savings on attorneys fees and other costs.
