    For instance is it legal to put "Acai drink for health Acai Power-500 Powder Oprah Acai" or some variations which uses in this case the tradename of Acai Power500, while the others are generic terms?

    Is that considered fair use of trademark? Since if they watch the video, or read the article, visit my blog etc., they wont really see me mentioning the actual product (power 500). However it is a commercial site, selling another product, which obviously just wanted to suck traffic and nothing else.

    Is that copyright infringement?

    Im about to go to war, because my former affiliate manager is pissed because I STOLE their traffic, and put up sites also in the same niche, but a different product, and so now they're holding on to my money.
    Its not big though, just a little over hundred bucks. But the funds have cleared, and is verified and should've been sent to me last month with the rest of it!

    She gave me some BS about me no longer an affiliate so they need to be protected against future chargebacks or whatever.

    I read somewhere, that I can change those sites into a Hater-review type of site? That as long as Im not profiting? They cant touch me?
    I was actually thinking of doing SEO works ont he COMPLIANTS made by other customers, so they lose customers (if they dont give me my money!)

    What do you guys think?

    Could I get sued for libel, if I just relay 100% of my shitty experiences with the company, total facts, nothing added?

    By the way, im not American, so copyright laws do not apply the same to every country is that correct?
