Q. Hello, I see that Howard University is trademarked. Am I able to just use "Howard" or "Bowie" without adding the word U
A: It's going to depend on the actual mark, but "Howard" and "Bowie" themselves are weak marks and will likely not be granted a trademark. "Howard" is a common first and surname and "Bowie" is a location. The USPTO does not grant trademarks to generic or descriptive marks. Strong marks are "fanciful" or "arbitrary" as defined by US trademark law. You should reach out to a business or intellectual property attorney in your area to help create a strong mark for your company. Good luck!
Q. I had a pole barn put up by a co.! everything is fine except I need the 3ft. door raised up 4 inches for concrete!! they
A: Well, it really depends on the contract you signed with them. I'm curious as to what acceptance of the final work product is explained to be, and whether the contract said anything about modifications to the work. If they have a duty to come back and raise the door, which they probably do, then you could bring a suit for breach of contract yourself. However, there are a number of ways to tackle this problem.
Q. Maryland door to door sales agreement cancellation on 6 business day consequences
A: This all really depends on the agreement that you signed. But from your question, it looks like you cancelled the agreement within the permitted time limit, so you will likely not be liable for payment. You should be able to successfully defend yourself if the seller tries to enforce the agreement in court. Or, you could also file suit for breach of contract if the seller does not abandon their demands for payment. However, this all really depends on the agreement and circumstances. Rolanzo White, Esq.
