Standard Disclaimers - Where, if possible can I get help with one?

by Mary Gallivan 2 replies
Hi fellow warriors

I would like to put a disclaimer on my wordpress blog essentially to say that any articles and material in certain categories (which I will specify) are copyright material and can only be used provided author name and site URL are included.

Items in other categories are freely available to use.

Is there some standard wording I can use for a disclaimer such as this without the need to have a lawyer draw something up?

I've looked at a few different disclaimers and don't know how I can word this effectively ans still have a legal document.

Having said that - even if I have it on my site and someone abuses it, I can't really do anything about it can I?

Thanks for you help.

Mary

    Mary, you don't need a lawyer to draw up a disclaimer for you. Just write it
    up with whatever it is you want it to say and post it on your page.

    There are no standard disclaimers that you can buy, get, download or
    anything. I have combed the entire Internet and finally said the heck with it
    and made my own.

    Hi Steven

    Thank you for that - I always appreciate and trust your advice.

    Would you mind if I sent you a draft by PM for you to have a quick once-over?

    Best wishes

      Well, I'm no lawyer or expert in this area, but sure send it over and I'll
      take a look at it. Basically though, if it says what you want it to say, it's
      fine. You know the terms you want, so just put them in simple English
      that anybody can understand.

      That's really all you have to do.
