Some More Information on Legal Issues

By Gugu Martini

A prepaid legal plan is a service which allows you unlimited access to an attorney for a monthly or annual fee. Prepaid legal services can work over toll free numbers and charge monthly or annual fees for their services. And is a good form of legal insurance.


In specific laws governing companies and trade in securities, which hugely differ from one country to another, may constrain LPOs to paralegal and secretarial work. Should the decision be made, a paralegal may then be given the responsibility to help prepare the legal arguments, draft pleadings and motions to be filed with the court, obtain affidavits and assist the attorneys during trial.

With paralegal learning, there are legal and paralegal schools to educate and train students to become professional legal associates who usually work under the supervision of a lawyer. Legal and paralegal professions include paralegals, legal secretaries; file clerks; and legal aides; consequently, paralegals often work independently in private practices. You can increase your chances of landing a job as a paralegal by fitting appropriate continuing education courses into your schedule.

On copyright

On July 28, 2004, French Internet access providers and music copyright owners signed a joint national charter aimed at cracking down on illegal downloads and expanding the amount of legal music tracks available online (AFP). The music industry has been saying the same thing for several years now: peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks are exponentially distributing pirated music across the world through the Internet, and this constitutes a copyright infringement. These copyright allegation lawsuits are a minefield, because they involve the personal information of the defendant.

Most popular music is protected by copyright law, and any use of the music, such as in free ringtones, requires that royalties be paid to the artist. But may print and download portions of material from the different areas solely for your own non-commercial use provided that you agree not to change or delete any copyright or proprietary notices from the materials.


Legal music downloads have increased by almost 30% whilst illegal downloads have seen a decline of the same amount. John Kennedy, IFPI (International Federation of Phonogram and Videogram Producers) Chairman and CEO, had this to say, "We are now seeing real evidence that people are increasingly put off by illegal file-sharing and turning to legal ways of enjoying music online. And in more recent news, P2P file sharing companies, and individuals that encourage illegal downloads of music and movies, are now also being sued.

On divorce

A couple may seek Legal Separation if they do not want a divorce to terminate the marriage. Each spouse will need to have his/her own lawyer and the lawyers will deal with each other if the separation and divorce is not an amicable one. Although some couples do not need to have two different lawyers because they agree to divorce and can solve the separation problems themselves.

Legal Separation is the preliminary step before the court awards a divorce decree. And civil attorneys handle divorce and many other cases but you have to get the right one to understand your case.
