Fixed-Price - Est. Budget: $ 50 Posted
Hi, I have purchased a 'water filter' equipment for our apartment (value approx 3.000 EUR). The company deliverable was a total mess, they had several installation trials and also damaged the wooden floor on one of the trials. I asked them several times to report this to their insurance, but until now they did not respond to my emails, voice messages I left on the phone. I would like to understand if I have a chance to cancel the contract with this company based on German BGB law, as they are acting totally unprofessionally (they also delivered with more than 2 months delay vs. their commitment) and are not responding to my communication. Knowledge of German BGB law is required.Further details can be given on demand.

I have an essay I wrote last summer that need footnotes and an outside editor. The footnoting required is not heavy. Access to a library would be preferable or an account on Westlaw or the like. The basic thesis is -- The US should have an oath of allegiance for all citizens, like that required of naturalized citizens. Most of the essay is philosophical; Locke, Kant, and Rawls. Some philosophical background is desirable.

dissertation is based on third party rights in arbitration espacially in reference to Dallah case. Proposal “EXTENSION OF THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE TO THIRD PARTIES” Arbitration clause exhibits the existence of a specific agreement between the two parties to a contract to subject the disputes arising out of the contract to arbitration. It’s an agreement of it’s own and can be severed from the original contract. However, what is important to be seen here is the fact that whether a 3rd party, who is an alien to the contract and has not been recognized as a party in the contract can be bound by the arbitration clause in the contract. For instance, if a subsidiary company enters into a contract with another company, but the duties which need to be performed under the contract by the subsidiary company are instead performed by the parent company of the subsidiary. In this scenario, even though the parent company was not a party to the contract, can they...

Hi need help with this essay question : “The new requirement of the author’s own intellectual creation by the CJEU changes the test to quite a certain extent and arguably restores to originality ‘its core meaning’. However, given the English courts’ entrenched approach toward originality, [it] is inevitable that confusion would ensue over the standard of originality.” Deming Liu, ‘Of originality: originality in English copyright law: past and present’ E.I.P.R. [2014] 36(6), 376-389, at p. 388. Analyse this statement with reference to relevant copyright case law and academic literature.
