If you’ve read my blog before, you know a few things about me – like that I love chalky finish paint and The Real Housewives of [insert any city here]. Some other fun facts about me are that I got the measles in Kindergarten (despite being vaccinated), my full name is spelled “Breighanne” (but pronounced “Breanne”), and I am a lawyer in addition to a blogger. (Exciting stuff, huh?)
That last “fun fact” is important for today’s post because it is the reason I decided to stress myself out, take a risk, and write an eBook just for bloggers about certain legal issues that are SO IMPORTANT: copyright and trademark. And now, today, after months of writing and editing, I am ecstatic to launch my eBook, The Blogger’s Guide to Copyright and Trademark Law: How to Protect Yourself and Enforce Your Rights.
I am beyond excited that the day has finally come where I can share this resource with other bloggers! There is so much misinformation in the blogosphere about what rights bloggers have in and to the work they create and share, as well as how they can legally use others’ work. I wrote this book to help dispel the myths and misinformation that are out there, and to help bloggers empower themselves through knowledge and understanding of their rights and others’ rights.
Real life stories and examples from bloggers, information on copyright and trademark issues in specific types of blog posts (like roundups, recipe posts, and affiliate or shopping posts), and a convenient protection strategy checklist are just some of the things you’ll find inside. For just $25 you’ll get invaluable information that will help you strengthen your blog and your rights.
Bloggers are increasingly falling victim to scraper sites stealing their content, and copyright trolls demanding exorbitant amounts of money for the unwary use of photos on blogs. Now, more than ever, bloggers need to understand what they should do to protect themselves and their businesses, and how to enforce their rights. With a basic understanding of copyright and trademark law, bloggers will be better informed and better able to make smart choices for their blogs.
Here’s what some bloggers are already saying about The Blogger’s Guide to Copyright and Trademark Law:
With endorsements like those, I hope this book will be a valuable resource for bloggers for years to come!
In the meantime, if you have any questions about the eBook or what’s inside, please check out the information at this link or send me an email at [email protected] I look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn how to better protect yourself and your blog!
