So you’re an entrepreneur. You love taking big ideas and turning them into a profitable business that helps the economy, creates jobs, and may even change the world.
You’re collaborative, often working informally with a team of coders, artists, and all kinds of other professionals to produce your product. Sometimes you sign written contracts as part of business, but often you just focus on getting your app out the door. Unfortunately occasionally disputes arise. Who owns the product? Can someone on your team leave and create their own similar product?
Is what you're doing even legal? How do you minimize your legal liability?
Your customers are pretty great too. They’ve been buying up your product in droves. And everything was going just fine until someone tried to return your product. You might have forgotten to come up with a return policy. And now you don’t know what to do.
And you love producing content. But it’s sometimes easier to just grab images and music from online, that is until you get a DMCA takedown because that photo you used on your website is copyrighted. Or maybe it was a trademark violation, after all how were you supposed to that calling your new solar charging bag as a Charging Base Station (C.B.S.) violated trademark law. Regardless you just spent so much time working on a product that may never see the light of day. Maybe you should have had someone look at your idea beforehand.
