How to put “wrote fan-fiction” on your résumé:

fivewrites: fivewrites: xeno-lalia: resumespeak: Leveraged an inventory of established fictional character and setting elements to generate a disruptive custom-curated narrative entertainment asset. I worked in HR, handling applications and interviews, and if someone turned in that string of techno babble nonsense, I would have rejected them out of hand. A resume doesn’t need to sound fancy or overly technical, it needs to tell us why we should hire you. “Independent novelist/writer” is more than sufficient here. If you want to express the skills that fan fiction taught you, something like, “creative writing, editing, and publication,” will get you a lot further than… Whatever that just was. A resume should be tailored to the position, if you can afford the time and energy for that. But if not, then just think about what writing got fandom taught you. How to respond to criticism, how to present a professional pubic face, how to correct….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...

Big changes for internet shopping

By Mark Snider On June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Wayfair v. South Dakota that internet and catalogue retailers can be required to collect sales taxes from customers in states where they have no physical presence. In plain English, in most situations, no more tax-free shopping on the internet. This decision overrules two older decisions that allowed retailers to avoid collecting sales tax on customers outside of its home state and outside other states where the retailer had employees, a store, a warehouse, or some other physical presence. This is likely the most significant state and local tax case in 25 years and will have a profound impact on businesses who sell taxable goods or services online. Further, there are implications for mergers and acquisitions and could have a chilling effect when the potential buyer of a company realizes that the target has major sales tax exposure. In Wayfair v. South Dakota, South Dakota enacted a law that required all merchants….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...

Since 2009, Kiko has been accusing Wycon (previously known as Wjcon) of copying its concept stores before the Courts of Rome and Milan but, on those occasions, unsuccessfully. Again in 2013, Kiko decided to bring suit against Wycon in Milan for infringement of Article 2598 (unfair competition) of the Italian Civil Code and Article 2(5) of the Law on Copyright (Legge sul diritto d’autore L 633/1941).The Court backed Kiko's claims at first instance (decision No 11416/2015) and now also on appeal (decision No 1543/2018).First of all, the IPKat wishes to thank Mr Fabio Ghiretti, one of the lawyers who acted for KIKO, for providing the text of decision.
