Legal for course creators – Student problems (Legal Road Map® Podcast S4E87)

If you are providing an online course or digital products to students, members, or customers, you’re bound to come across a few tricky situations sooner or later. But are you doing all you can on the front end to prevent these situations from the start?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of clear payment language in your terms of use
  • How tech tools can prevent your students from copying your course content
  • Why including a dollar amount for damages in your terms of use can save you a lot of headaches if someone does copy your course content
  • Important legal and practical tips for managing your online community
  • Why including disclaimers in your terms of use could be essential, depending on the nature of your online course/program topic
  • Why promising guaranteed results is tricky business
  • Why you should keep your refund policy on the strict side in your terms

Key takeaway: We all want to believe the best in people, but in business, it’s next to impossible to completely dodge unpleasant situations. By taking a closer look at your terms of use, you can prevent or avoid a lot of them.
