Whether you’re a blogger, artist, author, photographer, or anyone else who creates works of arts to support yourself, you will need to protect your creative work in the form of copyright protection.
Developing creative works represents an important investment of time, effort, and other valuable resources.
Taking steps to secure your work is an important aspect of protecting your investment.
By the end of this course, you’ll be well-equipped to use copyright protection for your benefit and to avoid serious legal issues with copyright infringement.
Everything you need to know about copyright is in this course so you don’t have to worry about missing anything.
WHAT IS COPYRIGHT?
Intellectual property rights are legally recognized exclusive rights to creations of the mind. The purpose of intellectual property rights is to promote the progress of artists by giving creators exclusive rights to their works.
As you can imagine, if you created something and everybody had the right to use it without paying you, not very many people would go through the trouble of creating anything!
Copyright is a law that gives you ownership over the things you create. Copyright also allows you to legally protect your creative work.
Copyright protects any kind of creative work, including photos, videos, blogs, books, articles, songs, plays, sculptures, sound recordings, and other creative works. When you create any of these, you own the copyright to it.
Copyright to these creative works are your rights and your rights alone. Unless you willingly give permission for anyone to do any of these, no one can violate them legally.
In general, it’s illegal for anyone use or copy your work without your permission, but there are some exceptions and limitation to Copyright — Fair Use and Public Domain — both which we will cover in detail in this course.
Typically, content creators, authors, artists, photographers, and other creative professionals need copyright protection for their work.
WHY DO I NEED TO TAKE THIS COURSE?
The Internet is fast becoming a sanctuary of copyright abuse.
The idea of freedom of information and the ease of posting, copying and distributing messages online has created a false impression that text and graphic posted online are except from copyright protection. However, this is not true.
Copyright law was established not to give the author the right to deny his or her work to other people, but instead to encourage its creation.
Copyright is a delicate balance between the rights of the creator and the public’s interest.
When it comes to photos, images, and content, when in doubt, assume it’s subject to copyright and don’t use it without the appropriate permission.
There are many free resources for images and videos, whether public domain, licensed creative commons or inexpensive stock images, that you can find as a resource in this course so you really shouldn’t need to use copyright-protected works for your blog, website, or video.
My goal in this course is to help you better understand how to use images, videos, text, and other content in a way that is both legal and respectful of the author’s ownership rights.
Fair Use may be an exception allowing you to use copyrighted content, but chances are you’ll find your content taken down by your host if the copyright holder disagrees.
★ BONUS CONTENT & TOOLS ★
How to Use Content That Isn't Yours - quick but comprehensive summary of what you should do if you want to use any image, video, or content that isn't yours. Don't use anyone else's content until you've reviewed this!
Resources of Images You Can Use Without Legal Trouble- it’s common practice to snag photos off Google Images, but just because everyone is doing it doesn’t make it right. In the course you will find a great source of websites you can use to find pictures without worrying about copyright infringement.
Resources of Videos You Can Use Without Legal Trouble - You are free to embed any video from YouTube and other video platform on your blog or website as long as it gives you the embed option. That being said, you can’t necessarily use parts from videos on YouTube to make mashups or as part of another video. Be sure to have permission to use any video that you are cutting, making changes to, or adding to a project.

You’re an artist… a graphic designer… you’re writing a book… you’ve developed a website, you’re a photographer, you’ve recorded some great music.. .. you’re a start-up.
In that case, you really need to understand how to protect your intellectual property. It could be your most valuable asset- and the easiest to steal.
Someone breaks into Coca Cola’s premises and steals a truck. That’s easy to sort out. A truck is physical. Coca Cola owned the truck, they taxed it, they registered it. They even insured it against theft.
Your photos. Your designs. Your novel. Your music composition are your intellectual property, so you need to understand the basics of copyright protection.
What will you learn in this Copyright Basics: How to Copyright?
- The really basic stuff, like how to type a Copyright symbol © on your computer – you know, the little C in a circle in this copyright basics course.
- The difference between copyright, patenting and trade mark protection. Why protecting a product design is different from a graphic design.
- The ins and outs of registering copyright – and I’ll explain the dangers in using what’s called ‘Poor man’s Copyright’
- I’ll reveal all the misconceptions - and there are lots! For example – THERE IS NO EQUIVALENT of the Drugs Enforcement Agency. There ARE no copyright cops. There is no authority that will sort out disputes for you
- How to find out if someone has already registered a trademark
- How the music industry and book publishers are protecting themselves against internet Pirate sites.
And I’ll show you how, even as a one-man band, you can get someone who infringes your copyright to desist - without going to law.
In fact, I’ll share a real-life Case Study where another writer copied my own website - wholesale. How I stopped her in one day flat.
AND, I’ll give you lots of really useful links. Plus some interesting anecdotes and history about copyright to amuse you along the way.

Complete course on trademark search
Discover whether your trademark can be used and registered while protecting your business from trademark conflicts

Students: 8070, Price: $94.99
Students: 8070, Price: Paid
Welcome to the Complete course on trademark search - discover whether one trademark can be used and registered in order to protect your business from legal pitfalls.
This advanced course will help you to learn how to do a trademark search on your own. Being able to search for prior registered trademarks and to find out their status is essential when you launch a new brand in the market because this will enable you to avoid the many legal pitfalls.
Every registered trademark gives its owner the right to prohibit somebody else to use it without authorization. This is valid not only for identical trademarks but for similar too. In case that such an event takes place the trademark infringer can face different legal challenges - and even lawsuits.
Taking this into account and the fact that nowadays there are millions of registered trademarks around the world such negative outcomes cannot be ignored. One of the ways to stay on the safe ground is always to run a trademark clearance search in advance, before launching your brand in the market.
From that perspective, if you are a startup company, an entrepreneur, marketing or brand building specialist, law attorney, paralegal, freelancer or just a business owner who deals with brands, this course will be of great help to you.
THIS COURSE WILL GIVE YOU IMPORTANT KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS ABOUT THE WAY YOU CAN DO A TRADEMARK SEARCH by yourself using the official Patent Offices’ databases of the United States of America, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
Knowing how to deal with these trademark databases, which target some of the leading economies in the world, will provide you with an additional tool to build a good and successful business and marketing strategies for your company.
Why to choose this course?
It will help you to build a strong brand name which can distinguish itself from already registered trademarks
You will be able to find out early registered trademarks that could represent obstacles for the registration of your own trademark before the Patent offices;
Searching for registered trademarks can help you to escape potential legal pitfalls or even lawsuits;
You will be able to check whether someone else tries to register a trademark that resembles your own;
Acquiring skills to search for trademarks in official databases can save you money and time as well as giving you a clearer view about the chances for your brand name to be registered.
Most of the Patent Offices around the world register trademarks without any prior examination regarding earlier trademark rights. Even in the case of obtaining a trademark registration, this would be no guarantee that the trademark will not infringe on somebody else's rights. In light of this, a preliminary trademark search is critical.
The ability to conduct such searches throughout the brand building process is useful because when you are aware of existing registered identical and similar signs you can easily make changes to your brand name in order to escape conflicts and to create a brand that will have better chances for registration as a trademark.
At the end of the course, you will be able to conduct your own trademark search successfully saving some time and money.
As a bonus, I will also include a full PDF document that covers, in a systematic way, web addresses to all Patent Offices’ databases as well as to all other tools and resources mentioned in the lectures, that you will need to do your own search.
What makes me qualified to teach you?
My name is Ventislav or just Ventsi. I’ve been working in the field of intellectual property protection and management for more than 12 years. I’ve participated in many corporate projects for launching new brands in the market and the related process of their registration before the Patent Offices. In that regard, I’ve done many trademark clearance searches that targeted different countries around the world, including the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. From that perspective, I’ve gained significant expertise on how to deal successfully with such trademark searches and in that way to support the relevant brand building and the subsequent registration processes.
What Am I Going to Get From This Course?
Lifetime access to the course which covers the most essential aspects of doing a trademark search.
Interactive screencast videos that give you a clear view on how to implement a step by step trademark search.
Practical tasks throughout the course which will help you to put the knowledge that you will gain into practice.
Guidance on common pitfalls and best practices regarding trademark search and how to extract the best results.

How to draft an agreement
how to master drafting and reviewing agreement
Created by Simon Yared - Lawyer/attorney-at-law/psychologist
Students: 8043, Price: $64.99
Students: 8043, Price: Paid
Hello and welcome everyone to my new class, where I will teach you how to draft an agreement.
My name is Simon and I’m an attorney at law with 16 years’ experience.
I specialized in Civil and Business law in general and more specifically in corporate law and contracts law.
I have worked in a lot of fields with many companies both locally and internationally. And on countless projects from the public and private transport sector, to agriculture, to food and beverage, restaurants and hospitality, to the banking and financial sector, electronics and technology, and even in the health and cosmetics field.
I have come across all kinds of agreements, from the simplest ones, to the longest, most complex and most tedious ones. And I have always thought that everyone needs to learn a bit about agreements from a practical point of view. I am not talking about the theory behind contracts law, but the applied hands-on approach.
This class is aimed at anyone who in their everyday work need to draft, review and sign small to medium agreements.
This class will benefit also anyone who occasionally needs to enter into agreements. And who among us has not been in such a situation. Whether to rent an apartment, to lease a car or for any kind of services.
Let me start by saying that this class does not pretend to be capable of replacing the advice or the intervention of a professional such as a lawyer or an attorney. You will always need to seek professional help in certain circumstances, especially in overly complicated agreements.
This class rather, will give you some pointers on how to draft an agreement if you cannot or do not want to seek direct professional help. It will also help you to be prepared to review an agreement that was submitted to you, by explaining what are the main issues, the main points to look for in an agreement. What to focus on and what mistakes to avoid.
This class is not a theoretical one; this is not a law school contracts law course. Our main focus is to learn how to practically draft an acceptable agreement. However, some theory relating to the key elements that condition the validity of an agreement are to a certain measure necessary in order to understand the constitution of the agreement.
Our classes will be divided as follows:
In our first lesson we will learn briefly about the key elements that condition the validity of an agreement.
Our second lesson will be about the preamble of the agreement. In other words the introduction of the agreement, covering the parties thereto and the recitals.
The third lesson will revolve around the main text of the agreement starting with the way the latter needs to be formulated and getting to the essential points that need to figure in every agreement.
In the fourth lesson, I will go through some of the standard clauses that we most frequently come across in contracts and agreements. I will explain each of these standard articles and give an example of each of them.
The assignment for this class is a standard residential lease agreement from which I have deleted some key clauses or points and that you will have to review and point out what key elements are missing and that need to figure in such an agreement.

GDPR has far reaching implications for all organisations handling personal data. And organisations have until 25 May 2018 to become complaint with the new regulations.
GDPR will apply to all 'public bodies and authorities', the definition of which is likely to be that used for the Freedom of Information purposes. This includes local authorities, universities, publicly funded museums, state schools and NHS trusts.
GDPR allows any European protection authority to take action against organisations, regardless of where they are based. And enforcement is backed by fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of group annual global turnover.

If Your Assets Aren't Protected...Luck Is The Only Thing Stopping Some Slimy Crook and His Lawyer From Taking Them... Is Luck!
Every Single Day in The United States Alone, 109,589 Lawsuits Are Filed...
Without a system to protect your wealth and assets, they are in danger every single day that you do business. Simply put, just one frivolous lawsuit by one gold digging attorney and your entire life’s work – wealth and assets – can be gone. That’s the biggest reason why I designed Three Secret Ways to Protect Yourself From Lawsuits … to protect myself and good people like you from nuisance lawsuits.
In the California case Peake vs. Underwood, a buyer filed suit two years after purchasing the property stating that the seller had not disclosed the condition of the property when it had been sold. The buyer maintained that both the seller and the listing agent had known that the property had unresolved drainage issues and never told her.
Guess what? The buyer dropped the lawsuit against the seller when she learned that they did not own anything of value. She continued to pursue the listing agent. Why? She was trying to win that “lawsuit lottery” and bluff her way into a settlement – but the sellers had protected themselves. Eventually, the court found her out and ordered her to pay $60,000 in sanctions for the frivolous lawsuits, but who wants to deal with all that silliness? The owners were smart – on paper they didn’t have anything worth suing for.
Now plenty of smart lawyers and accountants can build up a whole façade of protection that would take 4 private investigators and 6 computers to figure out, but in the end, nobody really knows who owns the property in question. Here’s a hint – if you can’t explain it, it won’t work!
Many asset protection plans that folks try to sell become so complicated that not even the client can explain how assets are held or how those assets were transferred. The downside is that those questions can be expected in depositions or a discovery examination, and a failure to fully and clearly explain what happened and why will make the court very suspicious and potentially give the court grounds to begin disregarding entities or setting aside transfers. Most judges start asking themselves, “What is really going on here?” if the structure and transfers are too complicated and not well explained.
This course is an introduction to the three types of Trusts I personally use every day in my business.

Terms and Conditions is a set of rules between you, the website owner, and the visitors of your website.

A trademark identifies your goods and services to your customers. It can be the name of your business, your brand, slogan, or logo.
Your trademark is what sets your goods and services apart from your competitors. Your trademark has economic value because it represent the business reputation of the products or services you’re trying to sell.
It’s extremely important to check for existing trademarks before you start any kind of business. You have to determine whether the company name or brand you are planning to use will infringe on an existing trademark.
You may have to remake your entire website and branding that is all over the internet.
This would be an extreme nightmare. This course will help you avoid all of that.
Registration of your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office allows you to obtain nationwide protection, sue in federal courts, and prevent other businesses from infringing your brand.
You can also save money on not having to hire a lawyer. By taking this course, you don’t need to consult a trademark lawyer every time you need to check whether you will be infringing on another brand’s trademark. Knowing how to do it on your own will save you a lot of time and money.
You've put a lot of time and effort into creating your business. Whether you're just starting out or you're already established, a registered trademark will help expand the protection of your brand nationwide.

Investigator Ethics for the PI, Consumer and Client
Ethics are professional standards that investigators must follow, particularly if retained by an attorney as their agent

Our agency has operated for over 25 years in Colorado, an unlicensed state until 2012 (voluntary, as was our agency) and mandatory in 2015. During this time it was greatly misunderstood that ethics applied to investigators - even a District Court judge ruled that without licensure there are no private investigator ethics in Colorado. This refutes that ruling and informs the student - from consumer to attorney, and interested to veteran private investigator - that there are ethics that must be followed and apply to both investigator/consumer and investigator/attorney relationships. Ethics serve both professional and consumer protection. Only facts obtained ethically can be evidence - facts without ethics is not evidence.
