Halacha - Unwanted gifts/presents
Submitted by Sergei Osankin  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: A person is responsible for actions even when drunk, and any transactions that he makes are valid. However, if he is so drunk that he is unaware of what he is doing, his transactions, gifts etc. are void. (Shulchan Aruch, 232:22)

Halacha - home extension
Submitted by michael  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: Not necessarily. There may be Halachic issues that require their permission. Individual circumstances will dictate the extent to which (if at all) your neighbours have a say in the matter.  A Dayan or Rav knowledgable in these matters should be consulted.

Halacha - Reimbrusing Money Laid Out
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: Seeing as you laid out the money on his word that he would repay you, you have every right to demand repayment.

As usual, without hearing both sides there can be no definitive ruling, but you appear to have a strong case.

Halacha - Copying CDs
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer:
To copy discs and sell them is prohibited according to the Halachah. But as to copying not for sale, in Halachah it is difficult to find a source to justify copyrighting prohibitions. However, the general rule of behaviour, "Do not do to others that which you would not like done to yourself," applies in this, too.
Copying for yourself, then would probably be OK, but not for anyone else, family or not.
All of the above refers to the position of the Halachah alone. The laws of the land, however, prohibit copying discs etc. under virtually all circumstances.
