Website Lawsuit Protection

Lawyers might be laughing but you won’t if you’re sued because of outdated, improperly worded or just the missing website disclosure or privacy policy.

If you have a website or blog. I call it cheap insurance to have a good updated privacy policy and legal disclosures. As we all know today’s society is very prone to threaten or file a lawsuit for the slightest perceived or real, legal infraction. Just consulting with an attorney. We usually set one back a couple of hundred dollars. Hiring an attorney for putting them on retainer you’re now talking about thousands.

You might think that if you’re not selling products or services. It’s not that important to have a proper disclosure or privacy policy. The fact is, thinking this way could cost you thousands! Just as one example, let’s say someone post a comment to one of your blog post and they use a paragraph or two from a copyrighted work… Even though you didn’t personally publish this, because it is now appearing on your site, you may face some serious repercussions, where just the deletion of the material in question will not solve your problem.

In March of this year, there were new regulations drafted giving the Federal Trade Commission more power over proper Internet website disclosures and privacy policy regulations.

Just borrowing another websites copyright notice or privacy policy may just create new copyright issues for yourself as well as not ensuring that such notice is is sufficient or even up to current regulations.

It’s time to protect yourself, your business and your personal assets from possible litigation because your website or blog was actually a litigation magnet. Obviously, anyone can sue anyone else for practically any reason, but by having proper disclosures on your website properties, you can definitely decrease the odds of being a target of a frivolous lawsuit.
