November 5, 2020

Legally protecting your content and intellectual property is important stuff 

Attention all entrepreneurs: There’s a new law in town that’s a game-changer for your business… and you need to know about. 

Trust me when I say that this law is going to make your life a whole lot easier. And because I’m always on a mission to help you simplify your business, I invited an expert on to talk about this law (and so much more)!

Ashley Kirkwood is a lawyer by trade with an impressive history of working for many prestigious law firms. She’s also an author, has been featured in many national media outlets, and runs a nonprofit with her husband. (She’s kind of a big deal.)

In today’s episode, Ashley is going to share all that you need to know, step-by-step (a girl after my own heart), about this game-changing law. 

She’ll also talk about…

  • What every creator should do before launching
  • What to do if you realize you’re infringing on someone else’s work
  • Keeping your Facebook group legal

And so much more!

Here’s a look at important legal points to know as an entrepreneur 
  • [09:26] When it comes to content, here’s the bottom line — it needs to be protected. Luckily, there's a new game-changing law that makes it easy to copyright a bunch of content at once — even your social media posts.  
  • [11:31] Ashley shares one thing you *need* to do before launching to protect your name. Plus, she gives you step-by-step instructions on how to do it. 
  • [21:50] When it comes to naming your brand, be unique and be a trailblazer — the more creative you can be the better. 
  • [25:31] We talk through the safest way to use other people's content to avoid consequences. 
  • [29:18] She shares what to do about disclaimers on Facebook. Hint: This is a tidbit I didn’t even think about! 
  • [32:41] Hot tip: Do a trademark search! Search Google, social, and perform a basic TEAS search on
