Digital Business Law is still in its infancy. Not many laws regarding the way digital businesses run are on the books.
But Digital Businesses are growing at a fast pace and need the law to help and guide them. Brylett is here to help with that guidance.
Digital Business Law
Contracts are pretty standard in business and in general life. We make contracts everyday in business and in life. For a Digital Business, they are a way to protect you and your business, and to keep you squared away. Contracts consist of some parts that every digital business owner should be aware of:
- Offer- Know exactly what is being offered in your contract.
- Acceptance- Know exactly how to accept the offer from above.
- Terms- know every term of that contract so you can understand what your duties are!
Protecting your brand requires looking and knowing what a Trademark actually is.
A trademark can be several things, but think of it this way: Its a way to show the world your brand i.e. Logos. There are also service marks as well.
When dealing with Trademarks, the more unique your trademark; the easier it is to get protection!
Have a genius idea? Want to make a zillion dollars? Have picture that you took yourself and looks amazing? Then make sure you are protecting work. If you are including pictures in your blog, then make sure you are not copying anyone or anything!
A copyright is created as soon as an original work is put in a form. However, you can still register it (which gives you more protection), but is not necessary to have a copyright. It is important to remember, that stealing others people’s work (whether you mean to or not), can get you into A LOT OF TROUBLE!
Just because you hate taxes doesn’t mean you get to ignore them! Sorry!!!
If you are a solo proprietorship, then you will file your business taxes with your taxes (Think schedule C forms). The same goes with a single member LLC (unless you filed to be a corporation for tax purposes).
****Hey there sunshine! I just wanted to let you know that yes, I am an attorney, but I am NOT YOUR ATTORNEY. The information above does not put us in an attorney-client privilege contract type setting. Even though you are reading this, it doesn’t mean that I am giving you legal advice as an attorney.
