Copyrights 101 for Nurses
You may not be aware, but Copyright principles apply to so much of what nurses do when they own their own business, especially if you create course handouts, program materials, social media, blog posts, e-books, books, emails, website content, sales pages… you name it! Copyright law can seem confusing. Are you unsure about what Copyright protection is or when to use the Copyright symbol in your work? In this lesson, you’ll learn all of the essential basics.
What You Should Trademark
Have you been thinking about Trademarking a business name or logo? Not sure what Trademarking really is, or if you even have something of value to Trademark? In this lesson, you'll learn the basics about Trademarks: What they are; how they protect your brand; what you can (and should!) Trademark; why Trademarking is considered a crowning achievement, and whether owning the website URL is enough to claim ownership of your brand.
If you have a website, you may worry that someone will come along and copy its text and images and profit from your hard work. It happens more often than you might know.
In this lesson, you'll learn what to do if someone copies your website content and what strong legal language you can put in place to support your rights.
Bonus: How to Avoid Making Medical Claims in Your Business
When you're passionate about a program you've created about something like herbs or supplements, you'll naturally want to speak as boldly as you can to let people know the benefits they can receive. However, this can get you into legal trouble if you cross the line into making medical or disease claims. This bonus lesson helps you stay in the safe zone.
"Avoid These 2 Big Risks When Doing a Trademark Search"
The first step to Trademarking your brand is to do a "trademark search" to identify potential conflicts with existing registered trademarks and assess whether it’s wise to move forward with a trademark application.
Clients often ask Lisa “What are the risks if I do a trademark search on my own?” Click to hear Lisa's 19-minute podcast where she identifies the 2 biggest risks to avoid.
Free directories: directories are perfect for customers that are searching for a particular topic. What’s great about them is that you only have to post once and they are good for long periods of time. It saves a lot of your time when you don’t have to resubmit your information every week or every month. The bad news is most of your traffic won’t come from here. I still feel it is worth it to get your link out there. Just take one day and set it aside for posting to
I really enjoyed this course!
This course was super informative and inspiring. It helped me understand copyrights and trademarks and I especially enjoyed the "Tips" handouts and audio recordings.
