I've mentioned in several posts and in videos on my YouTube channel (www.youtuberlaw.com) the legal requirement to provide and present your YouTube viewers with Official Rules every time you promote your giveaway and before anyone enters a giveaway on your YouTube Channel. In this post (and accompanying video) we’re going to cover a few things related to drafting a legally compliant set of official rules for your YouTube sweepstakes (the legal term for giveaway). And I also promised you a FREE set of YouTube Giveaway Official Rules. I'll provide those as well
This article discusses some restrictions you have to place and some restrictions you may want to place on entries by minors into your YouTube sweepstakes, giveaway and contest. This is going to be divided into two parts. The first part will discuss entry to minors under the age of 13. In that section I will explain to you why you cannot allow anyone under the age of 13 to enter. Forget about whether or not those under 13 may actually win. You cannot allow them to even just enter your giveaway.
