professional negligence?

How do you guys deal with this potential problem?

Im creating a linkbait content piece (purely, whitehat..but it does educate the industry on a topic..that if we miss a detail or someone just messes up something,etc..), and the site owner has said multiple times that he's fine with it (after I told him what potential issues might be associated with it...law-wise) and that I should action it.

However, would his saying so help me in court?LOL How do you folks deal with situations like this?

just make sure there's an appropriate clause(exp?!) in the contract and/or make them sign an additional statement saying you told them about potential legal issues, that theoretically may arise?

Or does this have nothing to do with SEO/link building really (I mean its a business law thing) and its all the site owner's fault, anyway...if he decides to put that content on his website (without paying close enough attention to law issues that may arise from it)?

Re: professional negligence?

many of the bigger companies have insurance against such problems but not all companies do... I usually test things on my own sites before any work on a client's site
