Setting up a business on the Net often seems simpler than setting up more traditional businesses. But from a legal point of view, you still face the same risks--and sometimes even more risks. Is there a chance that the picture you posted on your Web site will get you sued for copyright infringement? Can you protect yourself from being responsible for costly mistakes by your Web site developer? If you have chat rooms or a bulletin board, are you going to be held responsible for illegal activities by those who post? While there's no substitute for having a good lawyer, many of the situations faced by a huge number of Net-based businesses can be covered by a handful of standard forms. Authors Brinson and Radcliff have collected a dozen of the most necessary forms in this book. Beyond offering the forms themselves, the authors briefly discuss the issues behind the documents. Preceding each form is an overview of the situations that it covers, a checklist of issues that it involves and, when applicable, tips for negotiating the agreements with other parties. The book includes the following forms: an agreement for the development and transfer of copyrighted materials; a content license for text, photo, or video material; terms and conditions for Web site use; a Web site development agreement; an Internet advertising contract; a document of Internet use policy; a clickwrap agreement for selling or licensing software; a linking agreement, a permission-to-link form, and an agreement for the transfer of a domain name.
