Question . . .

What’s the number one protection all creators MUST have on their website or risk having their life’s work stolen and used by someone else? 

If you guessed disclosures, disclaimers, or even a privacy policy you’d be wrong.

Yes, those things are all very important but the number 1 protection all creators--whether you’re an author, poet, blogger, photographer, influencer, or content creator--must have on their website is a Terms of Use agreement!

As a creative, your work is the MOST important product you’ll ever own . . . BUT ONLY IF you protect it the right way.

Instead, what do most of us end up doing? We spend about 99% of our time creating our work and about 1% trying to protect it from theft or misappropriation. Which would be okay if we lived in a world where everyone played fair, but instead people are out there taking advantage of creators like you, using other's work and trying to make a profit off it. Have you heard about these stories:

  • The blogger who had all her blog posts and photos copied word-for-word and then repasted on someone else's website. When she tried to go after the thief and collect damages she was told the infringement was "innocent" because there was no notice on her website that her work was copyright.

  • The course creator who found out someone had purchased her course and was sharing her login and all the materials with dozens of people. When she tried to get them to stop, she was told there was no license agreement or terms of use on the website that prevented this so it was "okay" to do.

  • The writer who published a book on his website detailing all his best writing and marketing tips. One of his customers returned the book AFTER reading it and implementing everything in side and then asked the credit card companies for a refund even though he'd read the book. The writer lost his battle with the credit card company because he couldn't show he had a "no refund" policy anywhere on his website.

  • The fiction author who was sued for defamation and right of publicity and had to defend herself in a court hundreds of thousands of miles away from her home because she didn't have any litigation limitations on her website.

Does this give you heartburn and a yucky, icky feeling deep in the pit of your gut? Imagine putting years of hard work into your creations just to have someone else profit off it. Getting money, credit, even fame that should be yours! These are real world scenarios that can happen to anyone! And it can happen to YOU if you fail to properly protect yourself. Without an up-to-date, comprehensive Terms of Use Agreement on your website, it’s all up for grabs . . .

Failing to properly protect your website CAN and WILL hurt you!

Let me know if this sounds familiar . . .

  • You know protecting your website is important and you’ve even tried chatting with a lawyer, but not only do they not get what you do as a writer/ blogger/creative, they’re also super expensive--charging upwards of $400, $500, or even more for a simple phone call or quick email regarding your questions.

  • You keep putting off the complicated and confusing "business stuff" until you’re making money from your creative business because it’s just too darn intimidating--but that’s backfiring because people don’t see you as a “real” player in your field without a the right legal policies on your website.

  • You’ve tried the DIY approach but instead of finding answers, you wind up spending hours on Google going down a never-ending rabbit hole reading websites, blog posts, and social media feeds written by people who aren't professionals, have no real life experience with website policies, and have no idea what they're talking about. You should be creating content but instead are wasting hours for nothing. WHY IS THIS ALL SO CONFUSING!!!

Now what if you didn't have to worry about this?

What would it be like to go to sleep at night knowing you’ve done everything you can to protect yourself? What would that feel like, not having to worry about the business stuff, so you can get back to creating and growing your business? How much more confident would you feel knowing you are protected, and if any trouble comes your way you've got a legal agreement in place with your website visitors and customers in the form of a Terms of Use agreement?

Here’s the good news!

Once you have a legitimate, comprehensive Terms of Use agreement that is fully customized to fit your creative business, you can: 

✅ Post your photos, blog posts, stories, and other works without worrying that they might be inadvertently infringed.

✅ Know that your customers understand your refund policy and you have the ability to back up your stance on refunds in any chargeback situations.

✅ Decide what location you want business disputes with your visitors and customers to be settled in without worrying you'll somehow find yourself arbitrating or litigating in a foreign state.

✅ Look like a total pro and be taken seriously by potential customers, collaborators, and social media followers.

✅ Create a safe online community on your website where everyone knows the rules of conduct and agrees to abide by them.

These things are totally within reach even if you’re just starting out on the business end of writing, blogging, and content creation and know absolutely nothing about business, intellectual property and copyright . . . but you’ll need an experience guide to get you there. 

Introducing my website Terms of Use template for

authors, bloggers, and creatives

This is a premiere, customizable Terms of Use agreement template (in Word document format) specifically designed for all creatives. My video tutorial will take you step-by-step to understand what goes in your customizable template (and what doesn't), how it works to protect you, the biggest pitfalls to be aware of so you are protected, and how to properly display your Terms of Use on your website.

Say no more. I'm in!

I'm a former trial attorney turned fiction author--a creative like you! Let me teach you how to protect your website the right way!

I spent over a decade as an intellectual property attorney at a top law firm. For hundreds of dollars an hour, I advised clients at Fortune 500 companies how to protect their intellectual property--from copyright, to trademark, to patent litigation.

But it wasn’t until I left the law practice to pursue my dream of fiction writing that I realized the challenges creatives face when trying to protect their works. As entrepreneurs, we need these protections as much--if not more--than big businesses but hiring an attorney is often cost prohibitive.

That's why I developed this course to empower you to get confident with a plan to protect your work and thrive as the successful creative you are meant to be!

Purchase today and get instant access to the following:

✅ A state-of-the art and up-to-date Terms of Use agreement template in a Word document for you to download and customize to your specific creative business.

✅ You'll also get a lifetime of free updates. As long as my course is online, if my course is updated in the future you will be able to access the most relevant, up-to-date info for your business.

What People Are Saying About My Courses:

Hilary DeCesare, The ReLaunch Co.
Award-winning entrepreneur and executive business & lifestyle coach

"As the CEO of my own executive and lifestyle coaching business, it’s my job to make sure I’m properly protecting my company website, blog posts, videos, FB lives, and online courses. I am amazed how much I learned in Liani's course, especially for the price. Normally, I’d pay thousands of dollars to attorneys at the big law firms for this caliber of in-depth information, actionable items, and sample language Liani shares in each module. This course is a must-have for any coach or course creator."

Anne Abreu, The App Maven
Blogger and course creator

"I came into Liani’s course wanting to learn how to better protect my blog and my online course materials and safe ways to promote my business on social media without running into any copyright infringement issues. Liani’s course was entertaining and gave me all the information I needed. I was also surprised by how much helpful sample language she gave out for me to use for my business. This course saved me a ton of money because I'd otherwise have to buy these forms online or hire an attorney. Now I have peace of mind that I’m doing things the right way!"

Jennifer Callahan, Love Lulu
Author and blogger

"I’m a writer who is working on her first book and this course laid out everything I need to know to protect my work. Whether you’re an aspiring author, blogger, or content creator, Liani simplifies the complexities of copyright so you have a good understanding of the basics, how they apply to your creative works, what to do with common obstacles, and how to set yourself up to be protected across the board. I’ve asked around and been told that to get this insight from a lawyer would cost thousands of dollars, but Liani lays out the information in a fun, story-telling, easily applicable way, with examples to boot. Imagine your best friend is a brilliant legal consultant and established author, and you get to pick her brain on the best tips and tricks for keeping your hard work safe—that’s this course!"

Alicia von der Lieth, Whiskey & Waffles
Photographer and branding expert

"This course is seriously amazing, entertaining, interesting, and made me feel inspired to create more. I feel more confident as a creative putting my artwork out there and know the steps I need to take to keep my work safe. The module about websites was particularly helpful as I have a website and do web design. Liani made learning about copyright actually fun! There are so many great takeaways that every business owner needs to know!"

Amy Simidian, Uncommon
Travel Girl
Travel blogger, career strategist

"I’m a travel blogger, career strategist, and content creator. I took this course not knowing much about copyright and wanting to understand how to best protect my writing on my blog posts and ebooks as well as the video content I create on Tik Tok and Instagram. Liani’s course was super easy to understand for someone who doesn’t know much about copyright and I found it comprehensive and even fun. By the end of Liani’s course, I felt confident as a creator and would highly recommend this course to other creators like me. 10000/10 recommend!"

Kathleen Kilanowski, Esq.

Real Estate Attorney

"I’ve known Liani for years and when she actively practiced law she was well known as a top notch intellectual property attorney, highly respected in her field. As a consultant, her work is always high quality and clients love her because she’s able to explain complex business issues in an accessible, easy-to-understand way. As a real estate and construction attorney myself my expertise is not in copyright, and I found Liani’s course incredibly useful. I’ve told all my fellow partners who are writing books to take it."

Hi! I'm Liani.

I’m a former trial attorney-turned-fiction author and blogger who makes learning business issues for creatives easy to understand and entertaining. I have over a decade of experience as an intellectual property attorney at one of the top law firms in the world where I handled complex actions involving intellectual property, trade secret, corporate governance, and entertainment and sports law. I’ve counseled numerous Fortune 500 private and public companies in publishing, the arts, media and entertainment, and technology, guiding them through high profile disputes ranging from hundreds of thousands to billions of dollars.

As much as I loved being an attorney and helping my corporate clients, I decided to step aside from big law firm life to pursue my dream of being a fiction author under the pen name Rektok Ross. I have written and published an Amazon bestselling Young Adult contemporary romance, PRODIGAL, and my Young Adult thriller--SKI WEEKEND--will be published in fall 2021. I also run a successful book blog and robust social media followings on Instagram and Twitter.

It’s my goal to take out all the confusing jargon and boring business-speak to make learning as simple, accessible, and entertaining as I can for you. Let me do the heavy lifting so you can focus your time on what really matters--creating!
