    Hi.

    I have a website that I would like to build, but I would like some input first though.

    My idea is to get traffic by building a website centered around a very popular specific product out there.

    As long as I posted a disclaimer stating that I was not the actual company I should be good right?

    Is there any way I could get into legal trouble on this, or is it fair and square?


    Thank you.

    If you really would like to stay safe, you can get a professional to write your disclaimer
    or even hire an attorney to write one. I usually just go with a simple disclaimer that I
    write myself.

    It depends.
    For example if you use their logo or include their brand in your domain (for example : www.fixubuntu.com) it is not permitted.

    Check to see if they have a trademark on their brand name here. If it is in fact a trademarked name, you could receive a C&D from the rights holder.

    Where are you located?

    It is probably best to not put fake reviews and include a proper disclaimer and disclosure about you getting paid by the brand.
