legal issues for Senior Move Managers
Small business owners, including Senior Move Managers,
wonder whether certain aspects of their business require the
services of an attorney. For example, what language should
your contracts contain to make them valid and enforceable?
Do your agreements need to be in writing, and who needs to
sign them? With nearly every business having a web presence
today, almost everyone owns copyrights, yet many misconcep-
tions exist about what actually constitutes copyrighted works,
how to protect one's copyrights, and how and when one can
use someone else's copyrighted material. Trademark law is
frequently confused with copyright law, but it is separate and
distinct in terms of how trademarks are created, protected, and
used. Additionally, we will discuss other issues Senior Move
Managers encounter, including powers of attorney, potential
property damage liability, confidentiality issues, and more.
This fast-paced, example-filled, plain-English presentation by a
licensed attorney will provide an understanding of the basics of
these legal issues. In addition to the legalities, business owners
will learn how to evaluate and deal with the practicalities and
business aspects of legal issues.
Understand contract basics, including what constitutes a
valid and enforceable contract, when a contract needs to be
in writing, and who needs to sign a contract, as well as
related issues such as powers of attorney and choice of venue.
Understand basic intellectual property law with respect to a)
copyrights and what constitutes copyrighted works, how to
protect one's copyrights, and how and when one can use the
copyrighted material of others, and b) trademarks and how
they are created, protected, and used.
Know how to evaluate a legal issue from a practical,
cost/benefit standpoint, enabling the business owner to
make a decision that will be in the best interests of the
company.

Why do i need Social Media?
Here's the story: social media isn't going away. It's here to stay.
So what does it all mean for you as a small business owner in a

Traditional marketing strategies - advertising, referrals, and

business reach untapped potential customers and stay
connected to current ones!

and other social media tools? Does the prospect of blogging
