Hi, I've had some problems with my cousins business he's trying to say that I owe his company money and that I have to purchase HIS business. Anyways I've tried to deal with him on everything but he's been threatening to sue me now and warning me that I can't take customers that were customers of his company last year says they are his property. I'm trying to start my own company that would be doing the same things that his company did. His company reissues customer contracts every year for that year dates are even printed on them eg. contract for 200x season . many of the customers hate him they've been dealing with him for the last 2 years. They would like to book with me if I can get a company open. How long are they customers of his company? I would think that they cease to be his customers at the end of the service season unless they rebook with him the following year. Am I correct about this?
