Can I delete that CSS comment? No, it's not just a comment, it's a license and attribution notice for the original creator. Even though you modified the original code, as I covered in my answer here, under Licensing conditions, the Apache License 2.0 states: You must retain, in the Source form of any Derivative Works that You distribute, all ...
The word 'Attribution' by the Facebook Ads guidelines refers to the language used in your ad copy. Facebook has some good examples of what is acceptable and not, here. The example you use would be acceptable since it does not target the attribution categories belonging to any one person (eg. race, religion). I would recommend with every question, running ...
As per my comments, it would be unwise to solicit the sale of example.com directly to the owner of example.net, as that might be interpreted or argued as a sign of bad faith, and/or that you don't have any legitimate interests in example.com, which are two of the three elements necessary for successfully wining a Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy ...
In answer to your plagiarism question, since the website is yours there should be no issue. Copyright in the content does not transfer to the hosting company simply because they have provided a means to publish the content. If they have written all the website text, taken all the photos and designed all the corporate branding logos/graphics by themselves ...
This completely depends on your contract. If you have a contract with them stating they will build a website and manage it for you, but they retain the rights, then no you can not rebuild it. There are two separate issues. One is the code to build the website, and one is the design. It is the Design related contract that determines if you can rebuild ...
Happened to me (designer/coder/hoster) before – and will happen again. My approach always was that it's of course sad to see clients go, but of course it's ok if they take their website with them. And if that means they want to re-write the code but keep the layout I rather feel flattered, than angry. So my point of view is that your website is your website ...
I'm not exactly sure what Chaturbate is, but I'm assuming an adult website. I just did a quick google search and found this company that looks pretty legit: http://www.tmdhosting.com/adult-vps-hosting.html
1.) Is there a (written) contractual agreement between you and your client? (a.) If so, what does the privacy/data usage/advertising-publishing clauses say you can do with the data? There data may be considered (proprietary information or covered under intellectual property law) of the country/state they are located. (b.) If not, then a contractual ...
As with anything legal: It depends on your country If you want legal advice, consult a lawyer Personally, I would be comfortable with permission via email. At least you have a record of the permission then. I would think it would be a step up from verbal permission.
I would not design it to look and feel just like Facebook if I where you. There is always a unclear line when it comes to the copyright. If they feel you violate their copyright they can contact you to make changes and if you don't they can take it to the court. Try to make something unique that makes it clear that it is not the Facebook design.
I am not a lawyer, but there is very little that is unique about Facebook's design, besides the exact color and the Facebook logo. It's just a standard layout that's on many other sites.
