In today’s highly regulated Internet environment, legal developments are coming so fast that it’s difficult for website owners to know what they need to do for website legal compliance to avoid legal liability. Retaining an Internet attorney for continuous legal updates can be prohibitively expensive. Digital Contracts founder and leading Internet attorney Chip Cooper has solved the dilemma with his bi-monthly, complimentary email newsletter, Website Law Alert.
“We’ve offered Website Law Alert at our DigiContracts.com website for over a year and a half, and it’s been well received, particularly by small websites and start-ups. In the last couple of months, we’ve seen a noticeable increase in sign-ups”, says Cooper.
Cooper thinks he knows the reason for the increase. “The Federal Trade Commission has generated a lot of buzz on the Web this year – first with its Red Flag identity theft policy rules and lately with its new Regs regarding endorsements and testimonials. The effect has been to elevate the need for website legal compliance on the radar screens for most website owners”.
“We offer 3 Special Reports as a bonus for sign-ups”, adds Cooper. “The most popular one by far is Determine Which Legal Documents Your Website Really Needs – we get a lot of sign-ups for the Website Law Alert newsletter on that page alone.”
Cooper believes the increased rate of legal developments affecting websites will continue. Cooper points out: “For so long, operating a website has been viewed like the days of the wild, wild west – wide open and no legal regulation. Those days were over a few years ago, but many website owners are just beginning to realize it. I don’t know how a website operator can effectively operate in today’s environment without some way to keep up with legal developments”.
