More information about ebook disclaimers
The nature of the risks associated with an ebook will depend in large part upon its subject matter. For example, an ebook providing information about how to perform exercises could result in personal injuries, whereas an ebook about investment could result in financial loss.
There are various ways in which the ebook disclaimer seeks to manage liability:
- it makes it clear that nothing in the ebook should be treated as advice;
- it makes reference to particular kinds of advice (e.g. legal, medical, financial, etc) that might be problematic;
- it specifies that there are no representations in relation to accuracy and efficacy of the information in the ebook; and
- it limits particular types of loss that may result out of reliance upon the information in the ebook.
