Contracts: what should be included in a non-disclosure agreement?

When a business in California is undergoing a merger or acquisition, it may be necessary to divulge information that would otherwise be kept confidential. However, the other party should not then use that information for its own gain or to the disadvantage of the business that divulged it. To prevent such situations from occurring, the parties might execute a non-disclosure agreement.

A general overview of royalties in the entertainment industry

Many people doing business in California, especially in the entertainment industry, are paid in part through royalties. Royalties allow others to have access to intellectual property owned by another, while also providing the owner of the intellectual property with payments for that access. For example, one might earn royalties by selling their intellectual property, such as the copyright to a piece of written work, and then receiving payments that have their basis in the money generated from the sold intellectual property.

Contract law: what are some remedies if a contract is breached?

Business owners in California enter into contracts every day. In fact, contracts are often the backbone of many businesses, who rely on suppliers, employees and purchasers to keep their doors open. It would be nice if all parties to a contract would fulfill all their duties, but unfortunately this doesn't always happen. When a party fails to uphold their duties in a contract, it is referred to under contract law as a "breach of contract." There are several legal remedies that may be sought if a contract is breached.
