MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

Creative Law Center Resource Library

The primary resource in the membership area is a comprehensive program called CP2~Content Protection for Creative Professionals. CP2 shows you how to use the legal and technological tools available to protect your business assets and creative work so you can profit from them.

CP2 is just the beginning. The resource library includes: all workshop video replays; downloadable form contracts, documents, and templates; how-to videos; fact sheets; checklists; and links to vital references . . . and this library is grows every month.

Attorney Access

There are times when professional legal assistance is needed and you can’t or don’t want to do it yourself. Attorneys can be expensive. That’s why, after the first three months, your monthly payments of $67 accrue towards legal fees when you need that one-on-one help.

Think of it as a kind of Christmas Club for legal fees, a fund that builds up over time. Except you don’t have to wait for Christmas to use it, you can use the balance for covered legal services whenever you need it for as long as you are a member.

(Covered legal services mean issues related to the workshop topics and CP2. Covered legal services do not include litigation or state law issues.)

Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

Once you sign up, you will have immediate access to the private membership area of the Creative Law Center and its growing resource library. The membership area is where you will have access to CP2~Content Protection for Creative Professionals and past workshops. It is also where each new monthly workshop will be announced and your customizable, downloadable documents can be found.

Unlimited Downloads

Every time a new document is added as a resource to the member area, it comes with a live workshop that explains what the terms of the document mean and how it can be customized for your business. Download the documents in Word as many times as you need for as long as they are available. Use them digitally or in hard copy. (Please don’t share them.)

24/7 Access

You can to login to the membership area from virtually anywhere, whenever you want, and access all the resources then available. Resources are added every month. Some resources and downloads will only be available for a limited time. But the nearly three hours of video, downloads, checklists, and facts sheets that make up CP2~Content Protection for Creative Professionals will always be available.

Questions Before, During, or After

Everyone’s questions will be answered during each monthly workshop until there are no more questions. If you can’t attend live, you can email your questions in advance and they will be answered during the live event. Think of a question afterwards? Ask follow-up questions and I’ll be sure to answer.

Monthly Fees Accumulate for Legal Services

Legal fees can be expensive, but not getting the help when you need it could end up being a nightmare. After your initial payment of $197, your monthly membership fee of $67 accrues towards legal fees for covered services when you need that one-on-one help. Covered legal services mean issues related to the workshop topics and CP2. Covered legal services do not include litigation or state law issues.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

I’m confident that once you’ve seen me inside the Creative Law Center Membership Area, you’ll be delighted and want to stay with us for the long term. However, if you are not happy with your membership in the Creative Law Center, I will work with you and answer your questions until you are. Because you will have immediate access to the full library of resources as soon as you join, no refunds are available.

Here’s what members have to say:

“Kathryn Goldman has created an amazing legal resource for creatives with her Creative Law Center Membership program. There’s an incredible amount of value in the monthly live workshops she offers, and you also get access to the library of previously recorded workshops. Each month an experienced professional educates and advises the CLC members on all the different legal issues and topics you need to consider for yourself and for your work that you will ever need as a creative professional. There’s a always time for questions and interaction with both Kathryn and the guest speaker. But the golden ticket is having access to Kathryn’s professional legal advice in her answers to questions asked. When you consider what you would have to invest in a legal retainer to get time with a lawyer, the cost of either the membership or the workshops that can be purchased on their own, it’s a no brainer to sign up. I highly recommend working with Kathryn in any capacity. “

That's a Spade

“I wanted to drop a line to say thanks for that Work for Hire agreement in the member’s library. I’m using it with a contractor who is going to do a Video for my Kickstarter campaign. I think it’s perfect. Having your resources has sure taken a lot of the guesswork out of some of the issues I always struggled with before.”

Get the Legal Guidance You Need
When You Need It
at a Price You Can Afford

I don’t sell contracts or legal templates. There are lots of places that do. I offer guidance with the legal language you need to back it up.

If you were to hire me for a private consultation, a strategy session, or to customize a document for your needs, it could easily cost $1,500 or more. By offering access to a membership that allows you to accrue your membership fees to buy future legal services, I’m able to offer you the benefits of a private consultation, answering all your questions (and those you haven’t thought of that come from other members) for a significantly lower price.

There are key differences between membership in the Creative Law Center and a private attorney-client consultation.

In the Creative Law Center setting, I’m an instructor. You are a student. You will being doing the work to understand the legal processes needed to get your deal done, grow your business or protect your creations. I’m here to help you understand how the process works so you can do it.

However, there is no attorney-client relationship between us in the membership setting or during the monthly workshops. There is no confidentiality. All members and workshop participants will be able to hear the questions asked by anyone else and any follow-up discussion.

If you need confidentiality, you need to hire me as your attorney. And as a Creative Law Center member, you’re building a fund from your membership fees that you can draw on to hire me one-on-one when you need me.

On a personal note

I’ve answered hundreds of legal questions about copyright, trademark, contracts, and creative business building in blog comments, email, and in person. I’m proud of the way the Creative Law Center has evolved from those interactions into a membership community that helps innovative entrepreneurs and creative professionals get accessible, affordable, and effective legal and business building help and information.

I hope you’ll join me as a member.
