I am a brand new hubber. My first hub is advice on whether to get a pet ferret or not. Should I include a disclaimer absolving myself of responsibility if someone buys a ferret and then claims my article was misleading?
Good question. Here is a prior discussion:
I want to know, too. Are you selling mail order ferrets? I have a couple of people in mind that I would love to send a ferret to.
As it stands it will not hurt to provide a disclaimer, however, in most cases it is difficult for people to take legal action if they were misled by your personal opinion on a subject, since you are simply expressing your right to free speach on reviewing the pros and cons of an item, animal in this case.
This may however change slightly, as laws are coming in to place which ask you to disclose if you were paid to write a review, or if you were given a free sample of the product.
*Disclaimer* I am not a lawyer, I merely spout the information which I have read elsewhere!
Thank you for the warm welcome!
Sorry, I don't sell ferrets. I had a friend ask me for advice about buying a ferret for his daughter, so I wrote a very long email about it. After I signed up for Hubpages, I realized with a little editing I could post my advice for a general audience.
I won't generally be posting hubs on pets. I intend to write popular science hubs. I have the expertise needed to read academic science publications, and then present them to a lay audience. Since this is basically the same thing I do when I teach biology, I figure there's good synergy with this plan.
I wasn't sure how to find my questions after I posted it, so I went ahead and posted the hub before I read your advice.
My family has no pets now, but I expect someday my children will be asking for some! We'll have to show them some ferrets.
