Save Your Butt From Catastrophic Legal Claims With the Exclusive FTC Survival Guide
... Don't Let This Be the Year You Lose Everything.
Brian Kindsvater, Esq. has received the highest ethical rating possible from judges and other attorneys.
From: Brian Kindsvater
Litigation is ugly. It's war. Let me be upfront with you -- if you're ever involved in a lawsuit you will not win because you cannot win.
It's expensive. It's unbelievably nerve wracking. It's a huge time suck. And if you're up against the government, they have all the resources in the world.
I found the following quote from Frank Kern and thought it was very appropriate:
You may have seen this on the Warrior Forum:
| "OK, so what’s it like to get sued by the FTC? Well, first off, IT BLOWS. …As if that needed saying, right? .... I’m pretty sure I could have just called them and said 'I want to settle immediately.' And they’d have been like, 'OK. Give us all your money.'
But my damn lawyers in Atlanta wanted to get their cut so we did a bunch of useless paperwork stuff (to the tune of $100K in legal bills) and then I gave the FTC all my money."
- Frank Kern.
Do I have your attention yet? If not, no hard feelings as this may not be for you.
| "On October 11, 2007 I was forced to stipulate away my 12 year old company and turn it over to receivers for the FTC. I started the company in 1995 with $5,000 and built it into a $6 million a year business within five years. ....
Fallacy #2: The FTC will send you a warning to stop before they act. Well, here is the way it went down for me and every other business I know of that has gone through this. On October 1, 2007 it was business as usual. I was served on October 2. We were done on October 11. There was no warning.
Fallacy #3: If you are sued and you are honest the truth will come out in court. Well, there is no court. It is my nature to fight and that was my intent. The three claims they made were bogus. We were able to nullify any customer complaint because we taped every customer we signed up to make sure they understood the program.
I contacted a Madison Ave. FTC law firm that specialized in these things and hired them at $750/hr. When I mentioned fighting, they said sure, that will be a $1 million retainer. I was forced to plan my surrender."
- Bob Lovinger.
It's your life, finances, and reputation with family and friends. Good luck thinking bankruptcy court is an option. The government is smart enough to make sure certain losses will haunt you every day for the rest of your life.
Maybe you don't think you can afford protection. Here's the deal:
After the crap hits the fan you're probably right.
Today, I promise this is something you can afford and cannot live without.
FTC Survival Guide
The FTC has revised its guidelines for using testimonials. The FTC is specifically targeting Internet advertising.
"I consult the FTC Survival Guide before making my entries in the Captain's blog." - James T. Kirk
"After reading this guide to the FTC testimonial law my companies generated an extra $500 billion in revenue overnight." - Midas
"This report is guaranteed to cure cancer." - M. Curie
Whoa, you may be saying, what are these bogus testimonials? All legal I say and not a problem with the FTC. You'll learn why once you become a member.
You'll also get immediate access to this critical information:
Why certain 'gurus' are all wet claiming results-based testimonials are now prohibited. Bull crap. You'll learn how you can use results testimonials - and I'll quote the FTC about how to comply.
How 'unusual' testimonials can be used. There are chicken-littles all over the place claiming only 'average' results can be used in a testimonial. Again, total crap, and again I'll quote the FTC to you about how to use exceptional results in testimonials.
Who an 'endorser' is, what it means to be an endorser, and how to comply with the disclosure requirements applicable to endorsers.
Why the FTC is just like Google. If you already understand Google's concerns about the sanctity of its search listings then what I have to say about the FTC will make perfect sense to you.
Merchant responsibility for the advertising statements of its affiliates. Are you really going to get sued because some unknown ClickBank affiliate misrepresents your product? You'll be shocked at what the FTC has to say (hint: if the FTC is correct ClickBank will be buried under a mountain of lawsuits - but they won't). I'll get your head on straight and give you examples of what to be concerned about - and what not to be concerned about.
The critical steps you must take as a merchant to avoid liability for rogue affiliates.
What To Do If ...
A mini-companion to the FTC Survival Guide, What To Do If ... includes practical tips and advice on what to do if you get wind of a government investivation against your business.
What you read may literally save your hide and keep you from converting an already terrible situation into a prison cell.
Webmaster's Legal Guide
This exclusive guide currently sells elsewhere for $147 - just by itself.
Internet Marketing Law issues can make or break your business. Not getting basic terms right in contracts can be extremely costly.
I had one case where a business thought it had prepared a contract requiring the application of Missouri law and for Missouri courts to decide any disputes. But they failed to follow the guidelines I am about to lay out for you. Simple rules actually.
This mistake cost the company approximately $500,000. They ended up litigating issues in California, hiring several California attorneys, and then losing in California to my clients. In the legal area at issue California law was the opposite of Missouri law, to this company's great misfortune.
In another case a company from Washington made the same mistake. It thought it could shut down my client's Internet business based on a contract it made. Too bad for them a California court ruled California and not Washington was the proper place for litigation. A court in Washington then dismissed claims in Washington against my client. Ultimately, another disastrous and expensive situation that could have easily been avoided.
Don't be one of the many foolish webmasters, with their life savings at risk, that pays little or no attention to legal terms. They spend hours preparing a product, a website, and a marketing plan. Then, they try to spend as little time and money as possible evaluating their business from a legal perspective and preparing legal terms for their website. What a waste.
You will get in this easy to read, easy to use legal guidebook:
How to Win Lawsuits BEFORE They are Filed - I'll show you how to get legal disputes you file, or which are filed against you, in the courthouse that is convenient to you. Do this wrong, or miss a step, and you'll likely end up in a lawsuit a thousand miles away.
The fact is, if you file claims close to your house and the other guy is a thousand miles away, he'll probably default and you will automatically win. If you let lawsuits be filed a thousand miles away, it may be too costly for you to defend yourself or to protect your rights.
How to Decide Whether to Use Arbitration - Lawsuits or arbitration? What is the difference? Is there a difference? Which is cheaper? More importantly, You'll learn how to decide which option is going to give you the advantage.
How to Keep Frauds From Claiming You Promised the Moon - Unfortunately, liars and cheats abound. Even on the Warrior Forum. These people will say and do anything to get ten bucks. Imagine what they will say in a legal dispute with you! Stop them cold. Eliminate false claims about what 'you said or didn't say' and stick to what you can verify in writing.
Protect Your Pocketbook - To Err is Human. Face it. You'll make mistakes. One day you may get a claim as a result. It happens. Get the terms that can limit your financial exposure.
Stop Attorneys From Running Wild - You'll read one little sentence that could cause your mortal enemy's attorney to run wild, running up more fees and costs, and a waste of your time, than you could ever imagine. Is it in the terms you copied for your website? You'll find out.
Here are some of the unsolicited comments I've received about the Webmaster's Legal Guide:
