View Full Version : My muse needs some behavioral rules
10-09-2007, 10:44 PM
Hello all. I recently read The Four-Hour Work Week, and so now, of course, I am in search of a muse. Rather, I think I may have found one and am on my way to giving it a try.
It involves a website and I need to come up with Terms and Conditions verbage. Does anyone know of a simple and relatively inexpensive way to do this?
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Muse on! :)

Sounds simple but I would find the closest competitor and copy theirs. Simplistic advice, but probably the best route. If you have something so completely different you cannot find something similar on the net, find a lawyer...because you must have a bangarang idea!

Thanks very much for the advice, Chris. I was wondering if something like that was possible/legal. Might sound like a stupid question, but can Terms and Conditions text be copyrighted?

yes, anything printed digitally and on paper is automatically copyrighted. The question is, will they come after you for it? Probably not even if you did print it directly as copied. If you plan to use it though it will most likely no longer be under copyright because you will be changing the wording to reflect your product/company. I can't remember the exact laws on how much you need to change but it's a pretty good guess that changing everything referencing their company/product to referencing yours will be enough.
In other words, don't worry about it.
