IP Protection for Digital Products & Original Content

$49.00

You’ve likely spent a tremendous amount of time creating your digital product, whether it be an e-book, a template, a printable, or some other downloadable product you offer for sale. In addition, the original content you create and offer for free from your lead magnet or website can often take as long or longer than creating an original digital product for sale. Your original digital products and original creative content is copyrighted upon creation, giving you certain protections and rights from theft and infringement. However, enforcing those rights after the fact can be extremely difficult. The best way of protecting yourself from others stealing your products and content is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

This template shows you how to create a proper copyright footer for your original digital products and your original creative material and content, and also provides you with boilerplate language for you to customize and attach to your digital products and original materials/content.

By attaching this language to all of your products and any original content you create, you are making it very clear to possible infringers that you take your copyright and trademark rights seriously. You don’t want people pirating your work, either by stealing it completely, or taking it apart and reselling it. Also, many times, people inadvertently copy someone’s original content without nefarious intent, thinking that the creator would be happy for the exposure if they share it, but credit you. By expressly stating that you do not authorize sharing of your content without prior permission, you are placing such a person on notice that your permission is required first.

It’s easy to customize the language in this template. Generally, people place this language at the bottom of the last page of their product or content piece.

Do you create digital products? Do you create detailed original content you offer as a free download? If so, this template language will put all viewers of your products and original content/materials on notice that you take your copyright and trademark rights seriously, and spells out exactly what viewers/purchasers can do with your original material (e.g. share with your prior approval if you opt to use this language in the template) or cannot do.

This template was drafted by a US-licensed attorney. We always advise you have an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction review any documents you prepare from templates to ensure they are compliant with your local laws. Viewing, purchasing, or using this template does not create an attorney/client relationship between you and Solivagant Legal, LLC or Mairin Van Shura.
