There are tons of legal things you need to know for your blog and online business. But you don’t need to be overwhelmed or stressed out by scare tactics.
If you want to be sure that your blog and biz are LEGAL, this is the course for you. Written by a seasoned blogger and attorney, this is your start
Make sure your blog and business are legal TODAY – for your own peace of mind and to show your readers and clients that you are a professional.
You’ve got a great idea for your new blog. Or you’ve been working on your blog for years. You have the best images, amazing content, a growing email list and have started to make $$$ (or are thinking about making money!)
You’ve thought about it ALL. But wait… What about taxes? … Should you copyright your images? … Do you need to register for a trademark? … What if someone starts stealing your work? … Do you need to include your home address in your marketing emails?
Yes, the legal side of things isn’t as glamorous as lots of blogging and business aspects but it’s really important. Let me repeat that – really important.
Not only do you want to be sure that your content and business are both legally protected, but you also want to be sure that you aren’t making potentially catastrophic mistakes.
When it comes to the law, the main concerns are:
- I don’t want to be sued.
- I don’t want to have to sue other people (and what do I do if I do need to sue someone).
No one wants to be in a dicey legal situation ever. (Though I’m a lawyer and have lots of great lawyer friends, you want to avoid hiring us if at all possible!) That’s why I created this course. I’ve blogged and lawyered for years and I want you to be as educated as possible, so your blog and business are protected.
The law is vast but it doesn’t need to be overwhelming and scary. This course will take you through what you need to know, start to finish, such as:
- How to legally set up your blog/business,
- What legal language you need on your site in order to keep it protected,
- How to protect your original content,
- The rules for working with brands and sponsored posts,
- How to track your money and save on your taxes,
- And a ton more!
If you’re ready to get serious about your blog and business and make sure it’s protected, Blog and Be Legal is just what you need.
Oh and did I mention Blog and Be Legal now comes in a LITE version?
If you’re a newbie and don’t need all the bells and whistles, but are still serious about keeping it legal, Blog and Be Legal Lite! is just what you need – the legal basics, without breaking the bank.

This course does not address the law in other countries or international legal issues.

Purchasing and taking this course does not create an attorney-client relationship and you should always consult with an attorney before acting upon any information presented in this course.)
In my years of blogging, I’ve noticed that no one is talking about the legal side of things. We worry about images and sponsored posts and ads, but we tend to brush off the legal side of things. We think “I’m just a little blog, I’ve got nothing to worry about.”
Yes, the likelihood of getting sued or needing to sue someone is pretty low for bloggers (and for most people in general). But the best time to educate yourself on the legal side of things is before you encounter an issue. Before your get sued, before you need to send a cease and desist letter, before you realize you should’ve been filing your blog’s taxes for the last three years.
You get my point.
Just because no one is talking about the legal side of blogging doesn’t mean that it’s not important. That’s why I created this course. You get all the legal info you need to know today to avoid potential mistakes in the future. You have lifetime access to all the course videos and bonuses (plus any future updates to the course), so this priceless information will be at your fingertips anytime you need it.
What You Get:
This course is broken down into a series of short videos. You can watch all the course videos at once or just watch those videos that are applicable to your business at this time. You have lifetime access to the course materials and can come back to them at any time.
There are seven lessons broken down into over 25 separate videos so you can watch just what you need on your own time. Plus, since the law is always changing I’ll be updating the videos or creating new videos as necessary. And you’ll get lifetime access to those updates.
These lessons are valued at over $2,000! Lawyers charge hundreds of dollars per hour but you get all this legal information in one place without needing to hire your own personal attorney today.
+ The Bonuses:
Basic Blog Terms & Conditions Statement (sells for $85 on my website) – get a beginner statement for your blog to help you keep it legal!
Some of us learn better with written materials, so I’ve also included written guides and checklists for some of the topics. You can just download the guides to refer back to whenever you need.
Plus you’ll need to brainstorm for some of these topics too. Because of this, I’m also throwing in some easy downloadable worksheets to get you thinking and an income tracking spreadsheet to keep you on track for tax time. Download these to get your thoughts flowing and your money tracked!

Information about business:
Business is the activity of making one’s living or making money by producing or buying and selling products (such as goods and services).
[need quotation to verify] Simply put, it is “any activity or enterprise entered into for profit.
It does not mean it is a company, a corporation, partnership, or have any such formal organization, but it can range from a street peddler to General Motors.”
Having a business name does not separate the business entity from the owner, which means that the owner of the business is responsible and liable for debts incurred by the business.
If the business acquires debts, the creditors can go after the owner’s personal possessions.
A business structure does not allow for corporate tax rates. The proprietor is personally taxed on all income from the business.
