This live webinar, sponsored by Perkins Thompson, P.A., is for companies and individuals that develop and publish mobile software applications. We will review key legal issues for these businesses to understand how to grow, publish in the major app stores, manage liability and drive revenue. Attendees will receive useful legal checklists to keep for future reference. The presentation will be interactive, with plenty of Q&A time.

We’ll cover:

• What to know about the Apple/iOS and Google/Android developer agreements, and how to avoid app store takedowns.
• What legal documents do you need to prepare, and what should be in them? How does your privacy policy relate to your End User License Agreement?
• Intellectual Property Issues: What do you need to know about copyright and trademark?
• What to know if you outsource development or design work to contractors.
• General tips for reducing liability and risk.
