Did you put a disclaimer on your blog?

If you have a blog, do you have a disclaimer on it?  I think that having a disclaimer is an excellent idea.  This way you are protected more and it is harder for people to sue you.  It is really sad that we have to put things like this on our work and sites, but there are always people out there that will try to take you for all you are worth if you have not thought about protecting yourself. 

If you do not have a disclaimer on your blog or site, you may wish to consider it.  If you are uncertain as to what you all need to add or put in it, you can always call your attorney for advice.

I haven't start my own blog site yet. But that was a great idea. I have seen that on my friends booklet and I am planning to put disclaimer on my booklets too. That was for our own protection. It's always better to check than be sorry. Prevention is always better than cure.

One thing is that this is one way that you get to protect yourself from any lawsuit that may be coming in the future. I have followed some cases and I know how messy that it can get sometimes.

Exactly! It's very important to avoid getting into trouble with putting a disclaimer on your website than not set it up and have to run damage control when something goes wrong.

There are so many loopholes through which websites can be exploited but with putting up a disclaimer, you are giving yourself some protection.

It is true. We could not always be mindful of the things we post on our sites. There would be times that we may not know that the things we use may be copyrighted. As they say, prevention is better than cure.

Yes that's true. It's good to put disclaimer just to make sure that you are totally copy from the original site.

Every blogger should have a disclaimer on their site because technically it will not only protect your rights but also make it harder for someone to sue you for anything whatsoever.

I particularly like the "the views expressed on this site" and "use at your own risk" disclaimers so should anyone take advice you offer on the site and they lose some money, you won't be held liable for their loss. Or should they read something posted on the site which might offend them, they can't sue you.

If you don't have a disclaimer on your site remember, it is better to be safe than sorry. They are very useful.

I believe that this is a nice idea that will help blog owners til always push for what they really want to achieve in the process. What is important as well is for us to work things in the best way that is possible when we put up contents on our blogs.

Scammers take all forms online and look for the opportunity to take advantage of the gullible ones who make the grave mistakes of trying to deal with them online.

There was a forum I was a member in and probably a member of the forum was scammed of Bitcoin, so the forum owner put out a disclaimer immediately warning all members never to send Bitcoin to anyone apart from him.

What is the disclaimer that we have to indicate on the blog? Is it about the copyright or the ownership of the contents of the web page? When you say disclaimer what comes to mind is something of a warning like saying the first paragraph can be true or not. But if the disclaimer is about the copyright then there is no need to indicate at the bottom that you are the author and you had written it because it is your blog and that is already assumed.

In my opinion, this is something very interesting to be well considered by any blog or website owner because it would save you a lot of stress and troubles that might crop up from having the some people who would cause you trouble with your website.

It would serve as a warning to anyone on the website to mind who they deal with on the site because there are scammers everywhere.

I am glad to know this information. This is a good guidance for people who are not aware of the do's and don't on creating a site or blog. It's difficult to be ignorant of the law because it excuses no one. It always better to be very careful and have awareness before venturing to any chosen field. Thanks for sharing this information.

I see a lot of people putting disclaimers on their posts whenever they use, post or share some materials written or made by others. Sometimes I also write a disclaimer but if it's not that sensitive of a material I just use it without any disclaimers.

It is advisable to put a disclaimer. Plagiarism is on the rise on the internet and you might want to put a disclaimer that your content cannot be used without your permission. Protecting your blog is your responsibility and the content which you write forms the heart of your blog. Make sure that you include that legal action would be taken against those who steal your content without your notice

I don't currently have a disclaimer, but does anyone have any examples of the kind of stuff they've included in their own disclaimers? I'm curious about how to word it and exactly what needs to be covered in them.

As a matter of fact I didn't. My blog isn't so popular to begin with (I'm more a YouTube channel kind of person), and it doesn't has much to copy. To be honest, apart from the content, I'm 100% sure that there are a lot of people with similar design (I used the basic theme from the defaults).

Thank you for this friendly reminder, this might be helpful to someone planning to start a website or a blog. They can save you a lot of hassle and money. If you don't know what disclaimer to use there are templates that can you can use that have been professionally used before.

I have not gotten around to start my own blog yet, but when I do, I'll certainly find a lawyer to draw me up a disclaimer. You never know when a reader might find a reason to sue you. I will feel better knowing that I have a disclaimer to get me off the hook if ever I run into trouble with a reader such as this.

Putting disclaimer to your blogs can actually help to avoid lawsuits and copyright issues. I lot of people, blogger, content creators got into trouble because of not putting the appropriate disclaimers in there blogs or videos. You should always take the necessary precautions to avoid this certain issues in the futures.

For a blog to be authentic I think that it needs to be in a standard blog format. So it is not a bad idea to have a disclaimer as found on other blogs. I definitely have a disclaimer on my blog. This is a standard disclaimer as found on other websites. As time goes by and you encounter certain circumstances you change this disclaimer to fit your personal circumstances.

What kind of stuff do you write in the disclaimer? I’m trying to work out what I should include in mine to make sure I’m covering myself.

I think disclaimers are only needed for sensitive material or content which one gets from another site without proper authorization. But for content shared on social media platforms, I don't think a disclaimer is needed.

It is best to put a disclaimer on your blog for people or anyone out there to get news and facts about what you rightfully own and said. Some people even get noticeable or famous because of stealing other's information.

One thing I don't understand in Disclaimers is if it's applicable when you use content which was previously shared in Social Media like Facebook or YouTube for example. What happens if I share a content to my group which was previously shared? Would I need to put a disclaimer?
