When bloggers think of the legal aspects of their blog, they are often concerned with intellectual property, whether to create a separate business entity and making proper disclosures. There are many great resources available online about how to do these things and how to do them really well. There is a huge hole in the law that bloggers are missing - contract interpretation. This started simply when a friend asked me to look at an employment agreement for a writing position with a website. She was concerned about a minor provision and I was shrieking about what they expected in terms of assignment of intellectual property rights. I am here to translate legalese and teach bloggers what contracts really say and, more importantly, what they mean. Then, I can teach bloggers how to negotiate to protect themselves. Also, I can show them when the terms are so bad that it may be better to walk away. Bloggers will leave this session feeling confident that they can read and negotiate the terms and conditions of their contracts.
