Legal Protection of Your Digital Content: Know Your Rights and Remedies!

Posted by

In my last ‘Content Creation 101’ post, I mentioned the 11 simple steps to help you make awesome content. I also mentioned that I teach these 11 methods and share loads of tips and tricks to ensure that your content brings back the readers/ viewers/ audience and most importantly, attracts paid campaigns, in my ‘Content Creation 101’ course. One of the most important requirements for being a credible and long-term content creator is being aware of your legal rights and ensuring the protection of your content online. Legal knowledge also comes handy if you are ever the victim of content theft or copyright infringement, allowing you to deal with it swiftly.

This important legal knowledge is also being taught in my ‘Graphy’ or video-based teaching module on a new app called Graphy. Here’s what I’ll cover in my Chapter on the Legal Protection of your content:

  1. How copyright is infringed in various types of content
  2. The Indian laws that protect your content
  3. The international laws that protect your content
  4. Steps to deal with content theft or copyright infringement
  5. Plagiarism vs. inspiration
  6. How to draw up basic contracts to protect your rights when you work with brands
  7. What to look for in contracts presented to you by brands or mediators
  8. Can you be held liable as an intermediary if you have connected content creators and brands?
  9. Your moral responsibilities as ‘influencers’ are now also your legal responsibilities, with the latest changes in the Consumer Protection Act

As is evident, I’ve been super busy doing my legal research and putting together this class for all the content creators who don’t want to pay hefty legal fees. I highly recommend you check out my module on the Graphy app just for this chapter, even if you’re not interested in the other information.

And in case you’re wondering what Graphy is all about- it’s a new social media platform where people impart knowledge and skill at varying prices. Firstly, they are not addressed as ‘courses’, they’re simply ‘Graphies’. They are not purely educational in nature like other websites, and instead include hobby graphies like styling and baking, entertainment graphies like poetry and dancing, useful graphies like fitness and confidence building, and even life gyaan/advice from celebrities. Every graphy has its own price, depending on how many chapters it offers and what skill it teaches. Each chapter isn’t longer than 20-25 minutes of viewing time and consists entirely of short videos of 3-5 minutes each. This ensures there’s no ‘pressure’ of attending a class or completing a course, and can be accessed anywhere and anytime that is convenient for you.

Graphy is vastly different from any usual workshop or course available online because of the unique graphics and futuristic User Interface (UI). I’m sure once you’ve downloaded the app, you would love to explore it in-depth. While you’re there, do check out my Graphy and pick up some important legal knowledge too 🙂
