Lawyer services for bloggers | Law&Trust International

Your blog, podcast or Youtube channel has ceased to be just an “outlet”, and you decided to make money on it? It is quite an excellent solution because recently, the blogging business is gaining momentum. More and more creative-minded people receive income directly related to various Internet sites.

However, where there is much money, there are many problems. For example, a blogger may receive claims from tax authorities demanding payment of income tax and a penalty for non-payment; there are complaints about the content posted by the blogger; claims from copyright holders of various trademarks in the context of “illegal” posting on a blog.

It is also necessary to take into account that since the primary source of income from a blog is advertising, every blogger must be very careful in forming relationships with his advertiser, in order not only to receive a well-deserved reward but also to avoid the possible consequences of placing an advertiser by a blogger.

In this case, legal assistance to bloggers is essential. However, the implementation of all of the above requires severe knowledge and time-consuming, thus leaving very little time to create the content itself. That is why, in the event of legal issues, we advise you to contact specialists to resolve them. Lawyers of Law and Trust International are ready to provide legal assistance to bloggers on any subject of interest.
