I’ve dealt with a number of issues recently - both professionally and as a volunteer - that have made me painfully aware just how unaware business owners are of the legal risks with content.

And saying you ‘didn’t know’ is no defence against legal action.

I was a journalist for many years before starting my online business. Which means I’m very aware of the kinds of things that can land you in legal trouble with content.

In this episode of the Courageous Content Podcast I share my thoughts on what you need to be aware of as a business owner - but also a human being - when it comes to

posting content online (including responding to other peoples’ posts). Here’s what I’ll cover:

  • Understanding the difference between fact and opinion (and why it’s vital)
  • What are defamatory statements (and how to avoid making them)
  • How your responses other peoples’ content could land you in legal hot water
  • Steps you can take to protect yourself against legal action

Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice. If you need specific legal guidance on this topic, you will need to consult a suitably qualified person. These are just my thoughts on what you need to be aware of - based on my experience.
