Barney has finally decided to retire after many years on the job as a deputy in a small North Carolina town and as a detective in the “big city” of Raleigh, NC. Though Barney sometimes appeared to be a bumbling law enforcement officer, it turns out that he was a dutiful saver and a shrewd investor who now owns an interest in a second home on the North Carolina coast as well as some prime real estate in the North Carolina mountains.
Barney purchased the mountain property some 31 years ago as joint tenants with a right of survivorship with his old friends Andy, Floyd, and Howard. All of the friends have passed away, and Barney has

Intellectual Property: A Fight for Ideas

Intellectual property rights provide the foundation for building and extending markets for new technology. Economists and policymakers are progressively realizing that to manage and encourage technological progress, there is a need of a framework of legal institutions that promotes its benefits but also limits its excess. The paramount difficulty of companies and individuals engaging in development of new technology of any kind is appropriating the fruits of their labor. In developed market economies, in spite of the presence of substantial intellectual property rights, the widespread imitation of intellectual property deems them imperfect and inadequate.

What does the doctrine of adverse possession provide?
In its most basic sense, “adverse possession” is a legal doctrine that allows a person to acquire legal ownership of property that he treats as his own, if he does so for a long enough period of time, even though the property is not his own. In other words, a person who uses another person’s property, without permission, for a long enough period of time, can acquire legal ownership of that property.
What elements need to be proven?
1. The statutory period of time of possession. In most states, this period is between 10 and 20 years.

For something to be consider alive it must meet all nine of the properties of life. The first property of life is order. Order is when each structure or activity lies in a specific relationship with all other structures and activities (Hopson, 2011). The next property is metabolism; this is when an organized chemical breaks down molecules to make energy and needed parts (Hopson, 2011). Motility is the third property; it allows the organism to move themselves or their body parts. Responsiveness allows the organism to react to the environment it is in. Reproduction allows the organism to make others like it, this is the fifth property. Development is when the organism makes progressive

This memo is primarily for corporate tax specialists.
The case - see page 11-indicates that you may be asked to explain the tax treatment of distributions of cash or property from TuffPeach to its stockholders (or in the case of an LLC, its members).
We know that one of the disadvantages of a regular corporation is that the earnings are subject to taxation when the corporation earns the profit, and there is another level of taxation when the stockholders receive dividends from the Corporation. This is called double taxation.
The attached document has some key code sections summarized. Those code sections are pretty technical but we will explain them.

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that owns, and in most cases, operates income-producing real estate. REITs own many types of commercial real estate, ranging from office and apartment buildings to warehouses, hospitals, shopping centers, hotels and even timberlands. Some REITs also engage in financing real estate. The REIT structure was designed to provide a real estate investment structure similar to the structure mutual funds provide for investment in stocks
Reits are like mutual funds, but instead of using the money collected from investors to buy stock and bonds, they invest in property.
REITs can be classified as equity, mortgage, or a hybrid.

Companies are the dominant form of business association. The fundamental concept of company law was developed based on a case decided more than 100 years ago in the UK’s House of Lords. The case of Salomon established a maxim that a company is a separate legal entity distinct from its members. When a company is formed, it is said to have become “incorporated”. Thus it is a separate legal entity or a legal ‘person’ it has features that have given a company certain capabilities under the realm of law. The capabilities would include employing personnel, making contract, owning property, paying taxes and so on. A company can also sue and can be sued.

1.2 Industry context
The estate agency industry in the UK expanded considerably between the years of 1997-2006 with the average house price rising in value from £60,638 (1996) to £201,081 (2007), a rise of 232%[i], but witnessed a change of fate mainly due to the economic downturn post 2007. The expansion of such a lucrative market was due mainly to the buoyant activity of buying/selling of property/land for a higher realised value than what it was worth previously, an increase in disposable incomes and generous lending offerings by mortgage lenders. However as the UK economy slipped into decline, the industry stagnated.
