I’m betting you don’t really know what you’d do. Me neither. But I do know who I’d call.
Bob Silber – Bob is internationally known as one of the world’s most respected authorities on Internet marketing law. He is an Attorney, Consultant, Speaker, Author and former Adjunct Professor teaching Business, E-commerce, Intellectual property and Internet law at a major university. His clients include best selling authors, high-paid speakers, the Internet’s most successful marketers and up-and-coming business owners.
Bob is Legal Counsel to some of the most widely known Internet Marketing Superstars. His client list reads like a who’s who of Internet marketing and include individuals generating millions of dollars annually on the ‘Net.
How does a lowly little sales consultant, blog network owner like me know such a well respected guy like Bob ? Pure freakin’ luck !
I met Bob at an internet marketing seminar in Pensacola, Florida that was hosted by Willie Crawford in May of ’02. Bob was one of the speakers. Then in December of ’03, Bob hosted a seminar in the Florida Keys where I was intoduced to several people who I still partner up with to this day.
Recently, with our foray into blogging, I’ve started to see the tell-tale signs of the need for legal education for a new breed of internet marketer/blogger. And if you don’t believe you, as a blogger, are an internet marketer, you are wrong, which is well within your rights.
I’ve seen bloggers debate back-and-forth, thru comments and in dedicated posts, the legal ramifications of certain circumstances. Most of what I read was dead wrong, but I didn’t open my mouth, since I’m not a lawyer and could not be mistaken for someone who plays one on TV.
I’ve emailed and called Bob to ask him about the legalities of those situations, but didn’t print any of what I’d learned.
Well that’s all going to change … right now !
I’ve asked Bob to give us some help, as bloggers, in learning more of what we need to know … before we get too deep for his expertise to allow him to help us.
Bob graciously agreed to give me some time for a Q&A and in exchange, I’m gonna have my staff help Bob with his blogging needs, when that time comes.
So what I’m gonna do is put up a page in the next few days and allow you, as readers and fellow bloggers to ” Ask Bob Silber ” any questions about the blogging and remaining on the safe side of the tracks.
Then we’ll take those questions and Bob and I will decide how to deliver the info to you. It could be a printed transcript, an mp3 file, a teleseminar or some other form of media. But we will deliver the goods to you. We promise.
I want to say thanks, in advance, to Bob for agreeing to help and old friend help his new friends.
Bob’s a busy guy, as he’s in demand as a speaker, he does have a select list of clients that pay him well to watch over their legal needs and he got over a dozen of his own infoproducts to answer for.
He publishes the Bob Silber Letter, which has over 100,000 subscribers and he has his legal practice to keep up with, D. Robert Silber, P.A., where he continues to advise and protect authors, publishers, experts, speakers and Internet marketers and their creative works, intellectual property and businesses.
During his 29 year legal career, Bob has mastered the little known laws, which protect information product creators from running afoul of government laws and incurring civil & criminal penalties.
Some of his own works include :
· What You Must Know About Copyrights To Protect Your Intellectual Property
· How To Protect Your Creative Works With Trademarks
· How To Use The Legal Loopholes Of Disclaimers & Warranties For Your Creative Works
· How To Avoid Civil & Criminal Penalties For Illegal Pricing Of Your Creative Works
· How To Do Business On The Internet While Keeping The Government Off Your Back
· 4 Things You Must Have On Your Web Site To Avoid Legal Problems & Law Suits
Stay tuned over the next few days, as I continue to look for ways that Bob can help us, as bloggers, stay on the good side of the Federal Trade Commission.
