Many people waited for Cyber Monday, rather than wait in lines on Black Friday. Why? Because it’s easier to shop from your comfy bed. These online business are thriving with sales like these and it seems as though you can start an online business as easy as you would shop in it. But before you can become successful with an online business, there are some laws that you need to comply with before you launch the site.
Ashlee Froese, creator of canadianfashionlaw.com and lawyer herself, expands on e-commerce platforms.
These laws are not something that should be avoided because it will be less of headache in the long run if you obey them.
“If you’re in compliance ahead of time, it’s going to be a lot easier, cheaper, less of a headache and less complicated then dealing with it when it is part of a dispute,” Froese said, “There are financial penalties when you are not in compliance.”
Froese also touches on the dark side of the online business, the anti-spam law. It is really something that is meant to go after the mass spammers, not the small ones. But, hey, you never know.
“Anti spam was created, with a two year ramp-up, to try and minimize unwanted electronic messages. It is new legislation and it is new of its kind to Canada.”
