    This year, you can't go five minutes without seeing some new way to use AI to make your life easier.

    But what does this mean for the ownership of that content? If you use Generative AI to create something, can you still protect it from copycats? Or could you be accidentally copying someone else?

    Tune in to hear what happens to copyright ownership when AI is involved in the creation process.

Start Up Founders - listen up!

As a practicing attorney working on an online startup as a side hobby, I have found this podcast series to be invaluable. Accurate, easy to understand, critical advice in short nuggets that you can listen to on your commute, during a run, or anytime you have a spare 15-20 minutes. Thanks Amy!

Stargame fan ,

Amazing and helpful!!

As a woman starting my own personal finance brand. This podcast is easy to understand and helpful. She gives great free information that makes me comfortable wanting to buy more information from her! Very personable and informative. Can’t wait to continue to see what will be offered!

Katrina | Cybersecurity ,

So needed!

Too often, we ignore critical parts of our business (legal, cybersecurity, etc.) either out of ignorance, cost, overwhelm, or the the belief that “it can wait”.

“Legal Made Easy” speaks to the small business owner who may fall in this category. The episodes are short, easy to understand and actionable. We are responsible for the decisions we make in our business. Amy helps you to make these decisions from an informed perspective. Knowing that you have the tools to protect your business is very empowering. Thank you, Amy, for making these legal tools accessible!
