You’ve crafted your copy, filmed your videos, finalized your modules, and fine-tuned your funnel. But there’s one more step, and it’s one that even the smartest, most prepared course creators can miss.

Before you launch your course, you’ve got to get it legal.

Hi, I’m Autumn.

I’m a lawyer who helps 7+ figure course creators like Amy Porterfield, Melyssa Griffin, and Chalene Johnson lock down their content and brand to make sure their work stays exactly that - theirs.

Now I’m sharing my best tools so you can do the same.

But why does it even matter if I get my online course legally legit?

Look. I totally get it. When you’re just getting started, it’s way more fun to scheme and dream about your site’s color palette, building your sales funnel, and watching the dollars roll in.

But humor me for a second and imagine a few of these not-so-dreamy scenarios that can become reality if you don’t have the proper legal foundation in place for your course business…


  • You can’t get your Facebook ads approved to save your life and you’re not sure why
  • Remember those legal documents you borrowed from a friend for your own business? Well, it turns out that simply switching out her name for yours wasn’t enough to actually protect your business (hint: legal is rarely one-size-fits-all, especially when it comes to online businesses. What works for one business rarely works for another.)
  • You’ve got a less than happy student who’s been bad mouthing you all over the internet because she didn’t get the results she wanted from your course. You thought she understood that you couldn’t guarantee specific results, but she never signed anything and now she’s taking you to court.


  • You can truly protect your course content from being copied
  • No more guessing who owns what if you hire independent contractors to help with graphics, photos, videos, or copywriting in your course
  • Your students actually make their payment plan payments
  • Avoiding huge financial penalties from new US and EU privacy laws in your online marketing
  • Safely setting up an affiliate program to help spread the word
  • You can avoid being sued if one of your students gets a bad result through no fault of your own
  • Legally being able to use your students’ testimonials and photos to promote your course

The key is putting the right legal protections in place at the right time. And that’s exactly what I help my online empire builder clients do.

I’m all about teaching them how to avoid making the expensive mistakes now that can end up costing them big later.

But the truth is, every online course creator, whether you’re dreaming of making that first sale or you’re counting 6+ figures, needs the same five legal basics:

Once those pieces are in place?

That’s when you can start making magic.

Because when you know your business is on a strong legal foundation, you no longer have to guess about what scary (and expensive) legal issue could be lurking around the corner.

You get to mark legal off your never ending “to do” list, sell your course to hundreds or thousands (or hundreds of thousands, am I right?), and get ready for success like the online empire builder you are.

I was about to release a new course and I worried that I didn't have the proper legal wording on my website. It was so easy to customize my templates with Autumn’s step-by-step video guides.

I now feel confident that I have the right language in place to protect my business and my course if an issue ever comes up. PLUS, by purchasing the bundle, I gained access to the monthly group calls with Autumn, where I can ask any questions about the templates or my business in general. That alone is worth more than the price of the bundle. Thanks for all you do, AWB Firm!

Our complete course creator package provides you with the five documents you need to protect your course legally:

Website privacy policy

Website terms and conditions & disclaimers
These are your rules for visitors to your website and lets them know how they can, and can’t, use and share your content; disclaimers limit your potential for being sued.
Online course terms of use

Independent contractor agreement
It’s likely you’ll get a little help with creating your course content, and this agreement will make sure you get what you pay for and that you own all the intellectual property rights (this is not automatic!).
Affiliate agreement

You’ll receive links to download your documents immediately after purchase.
