Besides what Iñaki Viggers said, you might want to check your signed contract for the standard "Entire agreement" clause. If it's there, then all your relations with the other party would be solely bound by the contract or its written amendments. So no luck with the texts, unless the other party agrees to amend the contract. If it's not there, you could be ...

Are those text messages legally binding for the other 2 services even though they were not mentioned explicitly in the contract I signed? Based on what you describe, yes, they are legally binding unless they are implicitly and sufficiently related to the signed contract. For ease of reference, let's label as S1 the service which is the subject matter of ...

Yes, anonymous contracts are valid For example, when I buy groceries I rarely identify myself. However, you will have virtually no chance of enforcing them because you have to sue an identified person.

It is possible that a court would hold Comapny X's agreement with Bob to be unconscionable for overbredth and therefore void. This would depend on the state having jurisdiction, and on the specific facts of the case and the language of the contract between X and Bob. Some states do not favor such broad agreements on automatic assignment of IP rights. If ...

An example of a site that does text to speech conversions is Google Translate. I might illegally copy a book into the input box and have it play back either the English version or the translated Icelandic version, and my action would be infringing. Google however is not subject to liability thanks to the safe harbor provisions of the DMCA. There is Article ...

If the resultant audio is only for personal use, then it is unlikely to be an infringing copy. The UK's Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 as amended has 28B Personal copies for private use The making of a copy of a work, other than a computer program, by an individual does not infringe copyright in the work provided that the copy— (a) is a ...

Should I sign this? should ask if I can initial the page next to the opening paragraph to show that I have read and understand it must be returned within 15 days of move-in. Would this work? No, that is an unwarranted risk. A mark such as your initials may constitute sufficient evidence of your awareness and acceptance of the statements in the ...

It is not forgery to modify a signed document if you clearly indicate the date and nature of the changes, but the landlord could retain and rely on the original version, whoch would be to your disadvantage. I would suggest writing and signing a letter in which you acknowledge receipt of the condition from, and indicate that you know that it must be filled ...

Make sure you have everything documented - make sure you have documentary evidence of your notice period (your contract should suffice), and make sure you have documentary evidence of the agency refusing to honour the notice period. Then open an Employment Tribunal claim against your agency - your loss of notice period should be covered under the "unfair ...

I presume the contractual chain is: client -> agency -> you. If so, what you are entitled to is entirely spelled out in your contract with the agency. What the agency is entitled to is entirely spelled out in their contract with the client and, in general, is none of your business. However, a rather critical point raised in your comment is "if for whatever ...

John can surely negotiate the contract, and submit it to his parent, Janet. If Janet ratifies it, it will be binding on all parties.

Yes. BUT: here's the catch. under most jurisdictions, contracts are unenforceable agenst minors. So, suppose person A, a minor, signs a contract with person b, a adult, and person A is going to cut the grass for person B, and person b is going to pay person a 10 dollars. but, it turns out that person A already have vacation planned, person b CANNOT sue ...

is it normal to charge the client extra money for delivering the source code (let say 20% of the total price), beyond the implementation time in our case (500 hours/40,000USD)? It is lawful to charge for delivery of source code regardless of the implementation. For instance, when you buy a product (say, a vehicle), the delivery hardly ever contains material ...

how do they prove the contract exists? By producing --in court-- the exact same contract they are unreasonably declining to produce per your request. Their pretext that "no physical copy exists" is devoid of merit. They should still be able to send you electronically the contract you signed electronically. If they are genuinely unable to do so, then they ...

No It specifically says that your liability for damage to the boat is limited to the insurance deductibles. Your liability for other loss is unlimited and uninsured - get your own life, health, public risk etc. insurance.
