Do I Need To Copyright My Website To Protect It?

Your business’s website can be one of the most powerful marketing tools you’ll ever have at your disposal. Unfortunately, the better it is, the better the chances it will catch the eye of unscrupulous competitors. They might have no qualms about hijacking your written content, images or other elements and presenting them as their own. How can you prevent people from stealing content and images from your website? Copyright! Copyright protects the rights of creators of original works—such as literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works (for example, play scripts, movies, poetry, books, songs, photography and even computer software). It protects the way things are expressed/presented in works (e.g.,...

How Hard Small Business Owners Work

Having your own business has many upsides. Being able to work for yourself, building an asset, calling the shots – those are all powerful motivators. But the reality is a little less glamorous. Small business owners work hard – everybody knows that. But how hard they work might scare some people off. One survey from New York Enterprise Report found that small business owners work twice as much as regular employees. It also found that 33% of small business owners reported working more than 50 hours per week, and 25% said they work more than 60 hours a week. That’s hardly the only study reporting those kinds of...

However, this isn’t just about looks—keeping your website current and writing detailed listings descriptions, for example, are also important, ensuring that potential clients can access all the important information. Those refusing to acknowledge the industry-wide shift to digital risk getting left behind, and you don’t want to be one of those people. Here are...
