Are you staying legal with Canva?

Nicholette, one of my favorite business buddies sat down with me to chat about all things legal and Canva related. I'll let her take it from here.

Nicholette: There are two types of Canva people (okay maybe more, but stay with me here), the one is nervous about breaking the law when they use Canva and the other doesn't even know that there are legal consequences to think about.

Which one are you?

I was both. I went from not even thinking it's a thing to being uber paranoid. I don't want either one for you.

As my friend Tamsen Horton likes to remind me "every business decision, has a legal impact".

I've been keeping a list of all your legal questions (keep em coming babe) and I asked Tamsen to set the record straight on staying legal with Canva without letting it keep you stuck and not taking action on sharing about your business, using visuals.

Questions like ...

  • Can you be the next Kate Spade and use Canva to design your logo? 
  • Can you deck out, all of your graphics including your logo for your next course? 
  • Can you create an ebook in Canva and sell it? 
  • Can you save and use any google image that makes you leap for joy? 

[Crip notes: No; Yes; Yes; Hellz No].
