Mobile App Terms and Conditions
Our principal has been heavily involved in many software projects.
More than Mobile App Terms and Conditions
There are a range of considerations when embarking on the development of applications designed to work on mobile devices.
What are the legal considerations when building a Mobile App?
Mobile App Terms and Conditions are not the only considerations.
Protect your idea – Before you even speak to a software developer or potential investor you should consider a Confidentiality Agreement. While it will not protect you from purely fraudulent behaviour its certainly better to have than not. The last thing you want is your software developer to rip off your idea and beat you to market.
Getting the right business structure – The limited liability provided by the corporate structure has been one of the major economic drivers this world has ever seen. We almost universally recommend a corporate structure, which may include a Family Trust and separate IP holding and trading companies.
Protecting your Intellectual Property – If you are spending substantial amounts of money (or time) on your software development, you probably want to protect that IP. That usually involves having the correct rights to the software in the first place and then considering who is the best person to assigned it to.
Software Development – Whether you are engaging an established firm or a freelancer online you will need some form of written agreement, if for no other reason than to ensure the copyright in the code is assigned to you. That said there are many other reasons to have a Software Development Agreement, including confidentiality. Your Software Development Agreement should pick up where your Confidentiality Agreement left off.
