Believe it or not, the reality is Creators and Influencers need professional legal help to grow. With the current trend of online trolling, boycotts, and cancel culture, it becomes crucial for influencers to understand their legal rights and accountability when it comes to the transactional aspects of content creation and brand promotion.
Social Media Influence also brings notoriety, liability, and loss of privacy along with wealth, responsibility, and popularity. Influencers risk being sued by consumers for promoting products found to be defective or harmful.
The contracts between creators and brands are becoming more and more complex with the surge in social media and influencer marketing in India. Legal assistance has become essential for influencers as content creation is now a full-fledged career with legally binding contracts.
Understand why do Content Creators and Social Media Influencers need Professional Legal help?
Influencers must protect themselves from any legal trouble that threatens their content creation career. It is best to hire legal assistance to understand what you are signing up for and what should not be overlooked when signing a contract with brands or agencies.
Not many influencers know that Content Creators are required to properly label their promotional and sponsored content in accordance with the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) guidelines. ASCI is a voluntary self-regulatory body regulating advertisements in the Indian advertising industry.
Lawyers work with influencers to keep their contracts precise and ensure that influencers adhere to the Laws and Regulations to safeguard both the influencers’ and the brands’ interests.
Lawyers understand the unique challenges associated with the growing popularity of influencers and can help reduce legal risk to brands, deal with cancel culture, and combat cyberbullying.
So, it is very important for Influencers to be extremely careful and ensure full compliance in the content creation business since social media influencers are easy targets for everyone.
