Protect your e-commerce websites from liability
A quick practical tip today. If you are running an e-commerce business or simply posting a blog with regularity, you need to obtain insurance. Insurance coverage is available for many online businesses and many policies may cover legal claims often arising from e-commerce activity. I frequently see e-businesses facing copyright infringement, trademark infringement and defamation claims. Sadly, many do not have a business insurance policy or umbrella personal policy to provide indemnification and defense of such claims. If you are operating an e-commerce business or blog, make sure you consult with an internet law attorney for strategies on how to limit your liablity and protect your assets.
