No, you don't. You become the Defendant / Counter - Plaintiff.
Unless that client pays / gives you something as "valuable consideration" for that warranty, now, that contract, that their attorney wrote up, isn't worth the paper it is printed on. Don't sign it, and don't give them any reason whatsoever to think you will think about it, or might, somehow agree to it in the future. It won't make it enforceable, but it might give the appearance that it was agreed to, causing confusion on their part, at a later date, and at least opening the door for them to make an argument about it in the future to a judge. If you really want to ensure that they have no grounds, put it in writing that there never was a warranty in the original agreement, and you will not agree to extend them one. Don't say anything more than that. Even better, have your attorney send them a letter, on his or her letterhead, clearly stating that.
I would take the answer that was proposed previously one step further and but I would still say no. Once they uttered it, it automatically became copyrighted, as a matter of law. If they can establish, and prove, that they said it, which they would probably be able to do given that it is a recording of their voice, you would lose any argument that you could make claiming you had the right to do what you did. Then, you would likely be responsible for royalties on it. If you want to use it, you have to get them to agree to either give it to you, or to buy it from them for "good and valuable consideration." If they agree, willingly, then talk to your lawyer and have them draw up an agreement to document it.
This is a straightforward question. Go to the state liquor commission and licensing board website. I suspect they have a procedural explanation laid out, right there, for you. If not, contact them and ask for an FAQ sheet on it that explains the steps.
The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. If you use it for something other than that, that portion of the loan will not likely, be forgiven.
