The law states that a DBA California filing is required when sole proprietors, partnerships, limited liability companies, or corporations want to do business.

What Is Cybersquatting?

Cybersquatting examples show Cybersquatting (a.k.a. domain squatting) is the act of registering, trafficking in or using a domain name in bad faith. Cybersquatters neglect the existence of a trademark to profit from others. In fact, domain names are cheap and are sold on a "first come, first served" basis. 

As the internet started becoming popular, internet users knew businesses would need a website. Some users started buying domains to create sites that looked like they were from reputable companies.

Example: A cybersquatter could buy Heinz.com if the company hadn't created a website yet, looking to sell the domain to Heinz at a later date for profit, or use the domain name to attract traffic and generate money through advertising.

If a business has a good reputation but no website, the company either pays the owner of the domain name to transfer the domain or

Exclusivity Clause

What Is an Exclusivity Clause?

An exclusivity clause is part of a bigger legal document that restricts the signer from buying, selling, or promoting any goods or services from any person or company other than the issuing company associated with the contract. In other words, the company or individual works exclusively with the issuer of the contract. Many company owners who are excited and eager to get started in business may overlook the clause. It may also be included as part of another legal document or contract.

However, an agreement of this nature should be taken seriously. Make sure you understand the terms and potential risks involved before you sign. Violating an exclusivity clause can come with stiff penalties and fines. It is also very difficult to break this clause of a contract without being held responsible for the penalties listed. The clause is also referred to as an exclusivity agreement form and an exclusivity contract.
