We’ve all been there.
Your business is getting up and running, you have consistent sales, and everything’s just peachy!
Then you get a Cease and Desist letter in the mail.
Someone is accusing you of copying their work.
But you know you haven’t in your heart and soul.
You’ve created that piece from your own unique source of inspiration. Plus it’s totally aligned with the rest of your collection and brand…so wtf?
Yeah. I know the feeling, this actually happened to me a few years ago.
I was selling in the Sundance Catalog when all of a sudden some designer accused me of infringing on their copyright…and I hadn’t.
So we need to know how to protect our businesses.
Cause when something like this happens, it can be a total buzzkill.
I have two ladies on the show with me who are so kind and totally not scary. Surprise! They’re both attorneys!
Lisa Fraley and Genevieve Shingle Jaffee are the co-creators of the online legal course Damsel Goes Bare. Their mission is to make the law approachable for small business owners, with a special emphasis on helping women.
So it’s fantastic that they agreed to come on the show for us today!
We’re going to cover all the info you need to help you make better legal decisions about your business!
Now, I always say, I’m not a lawyer nor do I play one on TV…so this is more for informational purposes. If you have questions definitely talk with an attorney.
Okay. Enough disclaimers, or as I like to say “cover your butt” statements!
Let’s get into the show!
