Disclosures & Disclaimers

It’s important to make mandatory disclosures and limit your liability exposure through disclaimers when publishing books and ebooks. An experienced Internet business lawyer can help you craft the right language for your book or eBook as well as address any copyright questions you have.  Or, if you’re on a limited budget, you can choose to use a quality set of do-it-yourself templates instead like the ones below.

For example, material connections to products and services you’re promoting in your book or ebook should be disclosed. If you’ve inserted affiliate links in your book or ebook, the reader should be informed of your affiliate status in order to make an informed buying decision. Without such a disclosure, the reader might mistakenly assume that your motive for making a recommendation was not motivated in part by income.

Nondisclosure of material connections can lead to trouble with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and consumer protection divisions of states’ attorneys general.

Your book and ebook’s disclaimers can reduce the risk you’ll be sued because of what you’ve written. The content of such disclaimers will vary depending upon the subject matter of your book or ebook. For example, an ebook about diabetes will have different disclaimers than one written about making money online through blogging.
