Legal Answers
Q. I’m NYS, and I was gifted a car, given signed title, and letter
A: You must draft an agreement and then organize the papers. You would need to file the ownership of the vehicle so that you are not charge for taxes, insurance or others dues related to the car.
Q. I own a company in this same exact spelling and everything. Any advice ?
A: I suppose your question is if two companies with same name or trademark can coexist. Well there different considerations to make. In general terms two trademarks can exist if they are not substantially so as to cause likelihood of confusion. However, this is a legal term, one would need more information to give you a real answer. Additionally, for purpose of your trademark filing, if the other business is not opposing to the registration you may have a chance of being successful. Like my colleague said more information is necessary. I wrote this note which could be useful for you: https://www.ayalamateus.com/when-are-two-trademarks-considered-too-similar
