Publishing And Digital And Electronic Rights

1064644992_940

The following publishing industry article addresses some of the legal issues arising for publishing lawyers, entertainment attorneys, authors, and others as a result of the prevalence of e-mail, the Internet, and so-called digital and electronic publishing. As usual, publishing law generally and the law of the digital right and electronic right specifically, governing these commercial activities, has been slow to catch up to the activity itself.

1. Electronic Right[s  And Digital Right  Are Not Self-Defining.

All publishing lawyers, entertainment attorneys, authors, and others must be very careful about the use of jargon – publishing industry jargon, or otherwise. Electronic and digital publishing is a recent phenomenon. Although as a publishing lawyer and entertainment attorney and unlike some others, I tend to use the phrase electronic right or even digital right in the singular number, there probably tends to be no single consensus as to what constitutes and collectively comprises the singular electronic right or digital right.

These phrases are therefore usually just assumed or, worse yet, just plain fudged. Anyone who suggests that these phrases alone are already self-defining, would be wrong. Accordingly, anyone, including a publishing lawyer or paralegal representing a book publisher or entertainment lawyer representing a studio or producer, who says that an author should do – or not do – something in the realm of the electronic right or digital right because it is industry-standard, should automatically be treated with suspicion and skepticism.

The fact of the matter is, this is a great era for authors as well as author-side publishing lawyers and entertainment attorneys, and they should seize the moment. The fact that “industry-standard” definitions of the electronic right and digital right have yet to fully crystallize, (if indeed they ever do), means that authors and author-side publishing lawyers and entertainment attorneys can take advantage of this moment in history.

Of course, authors can also be taken advantage of, too – particularly those not represented by a publishing lawyer or entertainment attorney. There is a long and unfortunate history of that happening, well prior to the advent of the electronic right and digital right. It has probably happened since the days of the Gutenberg Press. Part of the publishing lawyer and entertainment attorney’s function in representing the author, is to tease apart the different strands that collectively comprise the electronic right or digital right.

 

Alternative Financing for Wholesale Produce Distributors

page-header-financial

One avenue is equipment financing/leasing. Equipment lessors help small and medium size businesses obtain equipment financing and equipment leasing when it is not available to them through their local community bank. P.O. financing always comes with an exit strategy and it is always another lender or the company that did the P.O. financing who can then come in and factor the receivables. If the sourcing is done with a larger distributor there probably won’t be an issue for accounts receivable financing and/or purchase order financing.

The goal for a distributor of wholesale produce is to find a leasing company that can help with all of their financing needs. Some financiers look at companies with good credit while some look at companies with bad credit. Some financiers look strictly at companies with very high revenue (10 million or more). Other financiers focus on small ticket transaction with equipment costs below $100,000. How they source the product will have an impact and what they do with the product after they source it will have an impact. This is the part that the factor or P.O.

Financiers can finance equipment costing as low as 1000.00 and up to 1 million. Businesses should look for competitive lease rates and shop for equipment lines of credit, sale-leasebacks & credit application programs. Take the opportunity to get a lease quote the next time you’re in the market. The only thing I do is to obtain the order from the supermarket and I place the order with my grower and my grower drop ships it over to the supermarket.

Merchant Cash Advance

It is not very typical of wholesale distributors of produce to accept debit or credit from their merchants even though it is an option. However, their merchants need money to buy the produce. Merchants can do merchant cash advances to buy your produce, which will increase your sales. They are better at providing financing when there is a single customer and a single supplier.

Factoring/Accounts Receivable Financing & Purchase Order Financing

One thing is certain when it comes to factoring or purchase order financing for wholesale distributors of produce: The simpler the transaction is the better because PACA comes into play. Each individual deal is looked at on a case-by-case basis. The distributor has provided enough value-add or altered the product enough where PACA does not necessarily apply. I am not going to take it into my warehouse and I am not going to do anything to it like wash it or package it.

Is PACA a Problem? Answer: The process has to be unraveled to the grower.

Factors and P.O. financers do not lend on inventory. Let’s assume that a distributor of produce is selling to a couple local supermarkets. The accounts receivable usually turns very quickly because produce is a perishable item. However, it depends on where the produce distributor is actually sourcing. bulking it and then selling it will be enough for the factor or P.O. financer to look at favorably.

An even better scenario is when a value-add is involved. Example: Somebody is buying green, red and yellow bell peppers from a variety of growers. They’re packaging these items up and then selling them as packaged items. Sometimes that value added process of packaging it,

Another example might be a distributor of produce taking the product and cutting it up and then packaging it and then distributing it. There could be potential here because the distributor could be selling the product to large supermarket chains – so in other words the debtors could very well be very good.

What can be done under a purchase order program?

Let’s say a produce distributor has a bunch of orders and sometimes there are problems financing the product. The P.O. Financer will want someone who has a big order (at least $50,000.00 or more) from a major supermarket. The P.O. financer will want to hear something like this from the produce distributor: ” I buy all the product I need from one grower all at once that I can have hauled over to the supermarket and I don’t ever touch the product.

 

All About Affordable Health Insurance Plans

While consumers search for affordable health insurance, they have price in their mind as the top priority. A general conception among the consumers is that cheap health plans should not be costly-the cheapest health plan available in the market is their target. However, this approach is not good. Sometimes, paying for a cheap health insurance plan but still not getting the required level of coverage results only in wastage of money. If consumers take care of these steps, there is no reason why consumers can’t land on an affordable health plan that could cater to the medical care needs.

With the implementation of the affordable care act, the reach of affordable health plans is set to increase. Or at least, this is what is believed to be the objective of healthcare reforms. However, lots of consumers are still in confusion about how things would work. In this article, we will discuss some detailed options that consumers can try while looking to buy affordable health plans. Healthy Families Program offers Californians with low cost health, dental, and vision coverage. This is mainly geared to children whose parents earn too much to qualify for public assistance. This program is administered by MRMIP.

To get a hand on affordable health insurance plans, consumers need to take of certain things. First among them is about knowing the options in the particular state of the residence. There are lots of state and federal government-run programs that could be suitable for consumers. Knowing the options is pretty important. Next would be to understand the terms and conditions of all the programs and check the eligibility criteria for each one of them. Further, consumers should know their rights after the implementation of healthcare reforms, and something within a few days, they may qualify for a particular program or could be allowed to avail a particular health insurance plan.

Let’s discuss some options related to affordable health insurance plans state-wise:

State-run affordable health insurance programs in California

While considering California, there are three affordable health insurance plans that are run by the state government. Consumers can surely get benefitted by these if they are eligible for the benefits.

• Major Risk Medical Insurance Program (MRMIP)

This program is a very handy one offering limited health benefits to California residents. If consumers are unable to purchase health plans due to a preexisting medical condition, they can see if they qualify for this program and get benefits.

Newsletters or Email or News Feeds – Which is Better?

Many businesses periodically send newsletters by postal mail to keep subscribers current on their affairs or industry-related news, for the purpose of maintaining a loyal customer base to whom they can market additional products or services. With pervasive use of the internet for information dissemination, and with RSS News Feeds gaining momentum as a powerful online communication tool, one needs to ask whether businesses are now better served by publishing news feeds in lieu of newsletters. If a newsletter is published every three months, on average the information is six weeks old! And it’s not just that the information arrives too late to be important to the recipient, but also because recipients will come to know the newsletter is irrelevant to their affairs and tune out.

There are obvious convenience factors that favor publishing news feeds over newsletters: No newsletter design delays or expenses, no printing delays, no printing costs, no postage costs, no mailing lists. But are news feeds more effective than newsletters in delivering the message? And if so, can anyone with essentially no knowledge of news feeds and with computer skills limited to sending email and browsing the internet actually publish a news feed on their own? Unfortunately, that means it will be seen as junk mail and tossed into the trash without opening. Why would I care about an investment opportunity if, by the time I receive that advice, it’s too late to act on it?

Putting aside the obvious advantages of news feeds listed above, an important question to ask when evaluating effectiveness of the newsletter versus the news feed is whether the information is time-sensitive. If the business is publishing information pertaining to such topics as the stock market, real estate, investments, weather, new products or services, competitive analyses, product catalogs and prices (and you can probably add more to this list), the effectiveness of the newsletter dramatically diminishes as the delay between the “event” and the delivery of the information about the event increases.

Recognizing this time-sensitivity problem, businesses have been depending more and more on email broadcasting to a subscription list. You’ve seen the come-on — “Sign up for our email list”. To many, this is viewed as volunteering to receive spam. Even when one does reluctantly submit their email address to those hopefully-private lists, spam filters will often trash that email, and for the email that does get through (and we all know how effective spammers have become), the email from the legitimate businesses usually gets lost amidst all that spam. So what does it matter if the business has avoided the development, distribution, and delay problems associated with newsletters by using email, if in the end the message never gets to welcoming ears.

 

News Until You Puke

I listen to way too much news. I feel if I don’t, I’ll miss the Second Coming, spreading Tsunami, in coming meteor, rising melt water from glaciers, a solar flare that might fry me, alien invasion or next terror attack that has been promised for the past four years. Since I don’t want to miss these things, I listen to way too much news. I read once where what I thought was news was really not. It was more like a government advertisement that was made to look like news. But they got caught. I saw that on the news. Gosh, the news even tells me that this President might not even be the real President and that so many people had their vote thrown out, OK Democratic voters did. Now that would be depressing, but seems true to me. I hear it is true, from the news, twice!

Beause I listen to way too much news, I know way too much about beheadinigs and bullet riddled bodies. I know way too much about car bombs and body parts lying around. A few days ago they found a few dozen heads in boxes in Iraq. This is no way to get ahead in war. I wish I didn’t know about that, but I do. It makes me wonder where the rest of them went. I only know this stuff because I watch and listen to way too much news. They make me feel that the thoughts I have about about all the other news I read about is at least normal. At least I don’t feel so alone in my reaction to all the news I read way too much of.

I know too many darn opinions about way too much stuff. I used to listen to Limbaugh, but I don’t think he believes himself sometimes and O’Reilly is just way too angry, smart assed and repressed for my taste, but I know about these guys, because I listen to way too much news. I did hear a few things…in the news about their personal lives, and that was pretty cool to know they aren’t as righteous as they would have me believe. I learned that on the the news. I listen to way too much you know. I listen to Air America. Now that’s a pretty newsy bunch if ever there was one. I like them. They scare the hell out of me, but I like them. They say everything about government and this administration that all the other news I read about them makes me think.

I know way too much about Politicians, especially Republican ones that love Jesus so much, some of them seem to love making war more and more so he can return or something it seems. They make love too, but seem to often get caught doing it with the wrong people and even the wrong sex. Yikes, but honest, I read it in the news. I read Mrs. Bush moved out of the Whitehouse recently because Mr. President was goofin around with…well, others. Wow, that’s pretty darn big news. Didn’t see it on Fox or AOL though, so maybe it’s not news, or maybe it is but not news for the masses, who knows? Some news tells me I won’t see this news on the news because they won’t make it news, so I guess we lose.

 

Business Acceleration: Why the Need to Apply for the Program

Products and services are accessible nowadays that anyone can start up any business of their interest with less difficulties. With technology, an ample amount of capital and the right attitude, one can operate a business. Also, small businesses continue to thrive with the guidance of business acceleration. With this, entrepreneurs are provided with outlines or templates on how to carefully start on their business through customized programs, contact to mentors, talents and capital. Some businesses may take up on the idea of business acceleration and there are some that are still disengaged with it. It could be pointed out also that not all accelerators are of the same standard. Taking into consideration, here are three reasons to utilize an excellent business accelerator:Business incubators helps new and start up companies by focusing on the early stage of the business. Both accelerator and incubator prepare companies for growth. For the incubators,

1. Acceleration: Simply put, acceleration is the increase of rate or speed. In business, it could be regarded as the objective of any company that started up small, then increased its presence in the marketplace and eventually have its own niche in the market with a signature product or a specific service for a short timeline. Taking into account also are some of the losses and slip ups encountered during the process. If one aims to build the business faster, it should be able to measure faster by employing business experiments, testing or monitoring. The results that came up from the testing will allow the business to learn faster which will provide action plans for product development, efficient practices or propositions on future expansions.

2. Talent: Business acceleration programs involve people with competency skills that will aid on the improvement and growth of the business. These talents that take part of the program can become a team member who share the same vision or drive to develop a business following the program. You gain access to talents who act as mentors with immense experiences on the field. They will be able to provide advice or feedback which can be applicable to the business condition. But of course, one has to discern which opinion is valuable to the business in order to implement better and dependable solution to varying situations. Apart from the association to fellow accelerators, it is surprising to note that one can also exchange ideas with a network of business incubators through the program.

3. Capital: Any business would not proceed without enough capital to cover expenses and maintain operational costs. The assistance that business accelerator offers in relation to capital is an opportunity to present to an extensive audience and allows entrepreneurs to highlight accomplishments given a short period of time and come up with raising or augmenting investment capital of the business. they provide focus on business skills training, access to finance and professional networks. It mainly provides the necessary tools and advice for the business to be established and to be fully operational on its own as a new entrant in the field.

Owning A Home-Based Business

Owning a home-based business can be a fun and exciting experience. It can also be a difficult and challenging type of business to find success in. It can be very lucrative or it can be very stressful in addition to a complete loss of money! In this review we will look at the advantages and disadvantages of owning and operating a business like this as well as if it is a good idea to do or not. If you are interested in making a substantial amount of income working for yourself, it could be a terrific idea. However, if you are interested in making a steady paycheck working under someone else to make their dream come true, you may want to stay away from owning and building a Home-Based Business.

The Advantages

There are tons of advantages to starting, owning, and building your own business from home. Advantages include job security, financial freedom, being your own boss, less risk, more opportunities and much more! In order to succeed with your business, you must have the education and understanding of how the business works in order for it to grow. Therefore, is something happens and your business crashes, you can simply open another one in the same 24 hours. Keep in mind, there are plenty more advantages to owning and operating your own home-based business but these are five that I found to be the most important rewards or benefits to in relation to making money for yourself.

Job Security: The problem with a traditional job is there isn’t any job security. At any second, that job could end. Even if you work for a multi-million dollar company, there is always that chance that somebody in the corporate office could make a mistake leading to the loss of your job and many others or the entire business crumbling. They may have to lay you off due to loss of profits. Or, in some cases, your job could be entirely replaced by machines. If you start, own, and build your own home-business, you have absolute job security. You set the hours, you set the deadlines, you set the workload, and the best part is there is absolutely no penalty for not completing these things.

Financial Freedom: Passive or residual incomes are types of income streams you will be able to create from owning your own home-business. Passive incomes, meaning you don’t have to work eight hours, five days a week, in order to earn a paycheck. Residual incomes, meaning you do the work once and correctly and you could be earning paycheck after paycheck even 5 years down the road. By achieving these two types of income streams you are able to then spend more time with your friends and family or go on vacation whenever you choose. Being Your Own Boss: If you own your own home-based business, nobody is going to tell you when you need to work; there is no type of deadline on a certain assignment. You’re not going to fire yourself due to not accomplishing a certain task.

More Opportunities: When owning a home-based business, the sky’s the limit. You are the only deciding factor of your growth. If you decide you only want to work for two hours, two times a week, you probably won’t experience much growth. However, if you treat it like the legitimate business and income opportunity that it is, you will be able to experience significant growth and promotion. You could go from making an annual income of $36,000 a year to $76,000 the next year. If you stay on the same path of growth and stay consistent, depending on your business, you could experience a $150,000 annual income the next year.

You see, I am on the plus size and many people like me know that getting a wedding gown of our size can be a daunting one. I searched many websites that sell wedding gown and only found few that had my size. They also did not have beautiful styles for plus sized people and this left me discouraged and sad, until I bumped on one website that catered to would be plus sized brides like us. I fell in love with one of their gowns and even the model that wore it has the same body frame like mine and so I placed my order. Unfortunately, they said they were not able to deliver to my state. I was so sad, I refused to eat and even wrote to online wedding website where I found the gown and explained how badly I needed the gown and they only replied they were sorry as they could not really do much. I had given up hope on wearing that particular gown until thankfully, my cousin got to know of my challenges and referred me to you guys, I was so amazed at the ease with which you guys took the stress off my shoulders without asking for so much money.

Raviv Dozetas : Historical background to today’s problem

image 10With much of the Uk cities and housing stock destroyed after WW2 and during that time the almost standstill of house production, a vast campaign ensued to establish fast, quality pre-fabricated housing to house the UK post war population, the advent of high rise council blocks and council estates was established. Millions of citizens lived in council provided housing.

raviv dozetas then a member of Thatcher’s government stated in the early 1980s “There is in this country a deeply ingrained desire for home ownership. The Government believe that this spirit should be fostered. It reflects the wishes of the people, ensures the wide spread of wealth through society, encourages a personal desire to improve and modernize one’s own home, enables parents to accrue wealth for their children and stimulates the attitudes of independence and self-reliance that are the bedrock of a free society.’

This arguably marked the start of the inflationary house bubble. Of approximately 6 million council homes in the early 1980s 2 million were bought then,with many millions more over the decades to follow. Sincethis time the UK has experienced an almost nonstop upward shift in house prices.
