Legal Protection for Coders & Programming Professionals

November 13, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join our start@Carmody team for an interactive workshop on “Legal Protection for Coders & Programming Professionals.”

The focus of this workshop will be on the legal issues related to programming and app development work, and will focus on such topics as:

– Beware the fine print! Pitfalls related to contractual provisions.

– Freelancing versus work-made-for-hire. Who owns the code?

– Protecting your intellectual property and avoiding misuse of intellectual property.

– Is reverse engineering ever OK? If so, when?

– What is the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and why should you care?

– What about patent protection? What are the issues and pitfalls?

– Properly using open source licensing.

– What are your obligations for identifying, preventing, and reporting security vulnerabilities?

– What could go wrong if your code doesn’t perform as promised?
