Do you want to have a successful blog?
Of course the answer to that question is “yes.”
But listen . . . you can read every blogging “how-to” article out there, and take every blogging course available, but if you don’t protect your content and know how to legally use content from other sources, it could all be for nothing.
Every day blogger content is stolen, and bloggers find themselves in legal trouble for their violations of others’ intellectual property rights.
Don’t let that happen to you.
By arming yourself with an understanding of copyright and trademark law, and how it applies to bloggers specifically, you can learn how to protect yourself and enforce your rights.
My eBook, The Blogger’s Guide to Copyright and Trademark Law, will help you do just that.

- The basics of U.S. copyright and trademark law
