Canine Supplies has no ground in Business law to claim the payment from Kate since she had legally relinquished the ownership of the business rights to a different entity (Hicks & Goo, 28). The best avenue for them to obtain payment for their products would be to prosecute Andrew. Once a business changes ownership the new owner takes up liability to shoulder expenses incurred from the commencement of his or her tenure to run the business. Kate would be liable to pay if and only if she was one who had incurred the debt in question. This case is related to Mars Incorporated acquisition of Masterfoods Europe in 1967. Mars Incorporated was not liable to settle any debts Masterfoods has incurred in the course of its operation.
Jim has to pay for the item he bought if the court proves that he was not influenced to take the drugs prior to purchasing the items and he instead took them on his own volition. The law does not recognize Jim’s situation of drug influence (Schulze, 34). He may file a case against the issuers of his credit card if he had not been warned against transaction when one is under the influence of drugs.
OzCom Pty Ltd is not liable for prosecution for Lan’s predicament. The Company has instituted appropriate measures to warn the users of its products on possible eye damage and recommended anti-glare filters to its computers. Lan was therefore fully aware of the usage if the product and was contractually bound to adhere to OzCom Pty’s terms and conditions at the time of the purchase (Miller & Jentz, 54). He exceeds the recommended hours of usage of the computer. In addition, OzCom Pty’s has sold several products without such a case being filed against it. It is therefore proof that the measures the company has taken are suitable in preventing its computers from causing the users eye damages.
