Yesterday I wrote to you about the ever increasing legal attacks Internet marketers are facing, and how you can protect yourself.
Internet marketers are facing both criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits.
Their bank accounts, cars, homes and even their freedoms are at risk.
And not because they're criminals, but because they're honest business people making small mistakes with huge repercussions.
Here are some questions I've received that I thought you should see...
Q. I don't have to worry about this legal stuff until I'm making a lot of money, right?
A. Wrong. It doesn't matter how much you're earning. If something goes wrong and you get sued, you can lose everything you own, including your home, cars and bank account.
Q. Who is the author and does he know what he's talking about?
A. The author is Attorney Mike Young. He has an advanced international law degree from Georgetown University and over 11 years of experience at representing Internet businesses and protecting their owners.
Q. What can happen to me if I'm caught making a mistake, even an unintentional one?
A. You could face criminal prosecution, civil judgments, fines, bankruptcy, and even a court order barring you from conducting any type of business on the Internet ever again.
Q. But this is in theory, right? No one is actually going to jail, right?
A. Wrong. Marketers have gone to jail recently, and others have left the country to avoid prosecution, sometimes only one step ahead of the law. And these aren't bad people, they simply made a mistake or two, like choosing the wrong business entity, or sending emails to their lists that didn't exactly comply with the laws.
There are many pitfalls to avoid when working online. If you know what they are, and how to take the appropriate counter-measures, you're out of harm's way.
But what you don't know can get you in a world of hurt.
It appears that more lawsuits are being filed right now in this decade than in all of history combined.
And more criminal charges are being filed now than ever before.
Don't leave yourself, your business, your home and family exposed.
Find out what you need to know now, before it's too late.
P.S. I know we always think, "It can't happen to me."
But it can.
Not protecting yourself and your business is like playing Russian roulette.
Play long enough, and sooner or later, there will be a bullet in that chamber with your name on it.
