I’m being sued and I’m representing myself in court. How do I fill out the form called “answer to complaint”?
You can represent yourself. Each form is different per state or county but generally an answer is simply a written document which presents a synopsis of your story to the court. The answer is not your defense, just written notice to the court that you intend to contest the suit. The blank forms are available at the court clerk’s office and are pretty much self explanatoryThere will be a space calling for the signature of an attorney. You should sign your name on the space and write the words “Pro se” after your signature. This lets the court know you are acting as your own attorney.
How will the FTC complaint being launch by YouTube Laws affect Patreon and Paypal?
Should the action go through I’d hope that the two entities are taught a lesson. It’s one thing to not like an opponents ideology and speak out against it. But it’s unethical, immoral and un-American to take detrimental actions against other to silence them and try to negate their right to free speech.If nothing else happens I hope people will contact there congress and senate representatives and have them pass legislation. Any company that refuses service to other members of society may not use the banking system. Banks are required to serve many they would probably not wish to serve. I think PayPal should be required to operate under the same set of rules.
What's the most effective way to stop SEM brand-jacking on Bing and Google beyond going online to formally fill out a complaint?
I had experience with Bing and Google stopping our brand name usage in competitor's ads, in both cases I used online form to contact Bing and Google ad approval teams. The responses from Bing and Google reps were really fast, it took less than 2 business days.Another solution is to create a special group of keywords and ads that contain your brand name and to bid higher than average on these keywords. So when a person searches for your brand product, the first thing that pops up is your ad. Thus, you can supersede your competitors.Besides, if you have resellers or affiliates, you can set special rules for them and forbid online advertising on brand keywords.
