… would face and voice count as personal information under GDPR? Absolutely. Does person B have the right to erasure … No. The right to erasure only applies in certain circumstances. While the initial reason for collecting personal data was consent, once it has been incorporated into a film, the processes now has a legitimate interest in the data. The ...

The exception is often called a Romeo and Juliet exception colloquially when applied to statutory rape laws. See, e.g. here. It is an exception to the age of capacity to consent to sexual conduct, not an exception to the capacity to consent to a contract. When children are very young (typically in the range of 7 to 12 as set by statute of common law, it is 6 ...

No Such a contract would be an attempt to evade the court order mandating a given level of support, and would not be enforceable. However it is not the case that no contract can deal with Child Custody or Child Support. A couple could surely make a contract to pay more than a court had ordered, that in no way violates the order. A contract could specify a ...

Your right that nobody should kill your horse is not a consumer right. "Consumer rights" are rights that you wouldn't have if you were not a consumer. This is not about consumer rights. The sign tells you that there are risks connected to using the car park (obviously because there are lots of cars driving around, there might even be car thieves), ...

Severability My understand [sic] of contract law in general, is that an illegal or unenforceable clause does not render the whole contract void, but rather that specific clause is essentially stricken out, as if it did not exist. This is not true. Or, at least, not necessarily true. The courts, when interpreting a contract, try to give effect to the ...

You also retain the right to license the work to others. Therefore you can sell similar rights to MusicBook and anyone else, as long as you do not grant an exclusive license (you have already licensed another party to distribute). They do not gain the right to sub-license your work. If you had executed a copyright transfer, you would have no rights to the ...

Can Hacker Corp. claim that they acted in good faith, believing that the Permission to Attack was granted by someone from within the company who was allowed to grant such a permission? Unless ACME proves that Hacker knew or should have known that ACME's low-level employee had no authority to make the decision on behalf of ACME, Hacker ought to prevail on ...

It is hard to tell what the statement in the OP that "95% of the contract disputes are won/lost directly by the contract itself" was intended to mean. It isn't literally true. A breach of contract claim requires a showing in every case of (1) the existence of a contract giving rise to a contractual duty, (2) an unjustified breach of one or more of ...

What is the principle that children can consent to other children of the same age, but not to an adult, called? england-and-wales There isn't one, per se.  A child can enter into a contract with an adult - for example by buying sweets, getting a bus ticket, or having a part-time job. Two three year old children that agree on "playing doctor" and ...

That is going to depend on the exact wording of the agreement, but it is probable that it defines "revenue" as revenue from ordinary transactions, and excludes a sale of the entire firm. The jurisdiction you are in (country and quite possibly state/province) may also matter.

In Germany, putting illegal clauses into a business-to-consumer contract may leave the entire thing void, and consumer protection groups can also sue to have them removed. In some cases the business was even required to actively inform their customers of the change. The courts took a dim view of companies who "just tried" to place an illegal clause ...

what would be a logical (to a judge) judgement? Simply the amount of rental fees + my earnest money? This depends on when consignment ended. If the equipment was still on consignment at the time the dealership received the earnest money (or perhaps even when you two entered the contract, if earlier), the dealership's allegation of "supply difficulty&...

I am fairly sure "the licences" should be read as a sum of these licences, as applicable: you hereby grant Ditto a license to translate, modify (for technical purposes, for example making sure your content is viewable on an iPhone as well as a computer) and reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Submissions you grant Ditto the ...

The second builder's higher cost affects the claim for damages because it forces the buyer to pay more than he expected to under the contract. Generally speaking, the formula for expectation damages is (Cover price - Contract price = Expectation damages). Here, P expected to lose £5 and gain a fourth cabin. So: Contract price: P's expected loss if B1 hadn't ...

R offers O £10 for the tie, which O accepts. It is not explicitly stated but it is heavily implied that this offer and acceptance was verbal, not written. Since this is the contract, it is arguably an oral contract. However, an alternative argument could be made that the “sale note” subsequently reduced the contract to writing. If this document contained an ...

The "Sale note" may or may not be a contract, it might be just a memo of the terms of an oral contract. By the way, if part of the consideration for the reduced price was the ability of O to advertise that a well known person had patronized O's shop, R has committed fraud in that way as well as in writing a bad check, but that is aside from the ...

I would say that when P accepts D's offer, and P and D sign a contract, that P and D have formed a contract. The consideration for P is the £25 at once plus the promise of £5 per year until £50 is paid. The consideration for D is the bicycle. As P advertised that the price was negotiable it was reasonable for D to offer this deal, and P could chose to ...

In your first example this is a result of what's known as "Age of Criminal Liability" which is the minimum age one must be in order for the person to be held criminally liable for breeches of law (It depends on the jurisdiction in question, but typically 11 years old is the extreme high of the age while 7 is often the low end of the range.). Two ...

Should I read that as (1) "you commit to a year each time, but we can pull out any time". or (2) "you commit to a year, but either of us can pull out any time". In which case what is the point in specifying a year? I read that as "You pay for services by the year. You can cancel at any time, but won't get a refund for the current ...

My question is does LEASING fall in the category of these terms provided in the act: Selling, disposing, transferring, or converting for private purposes? None of these words are defined in the 2016 Act. I cannot speak directly for Kenya, but legal systems based on British common law often refer to relevant and comparable legislation for interpretation, ...

First of all, it is clearer to speak, and think, of ownership of a copyright, not as ownership of the music. That helps focus on the rights that the parties actually have. Secondly, notice that the license granted by agreeing to the quoted terms id "non-exclusive". This means that the grantor (who is probably the artist, but might not be) retains ...

Washington is an at-will employment state, meaning that either the employer or the employee is generally free to terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason. If you send a letter accepting the offer, you indicate your willingness to work, but it is not really "binding" in the sense you seem to be thinking of. If the company ...
