Legal Tips for Blogging (From a Lawyer!)


If you are a blogger or starting an online business selling your own products or somebody else’s products through a branded website or blog, there are a number of legal nuances you should consider.

Keep in mind, not all of these tips are necessary when you are just getting started with your blog, but you should have them in the back of your mind as things to think about – because even if you aren’t making money from your business yet, if you mess any of these up at the beginning, it could have huge impacts on your (otherwise) successful online business later on.
