Technology Law & Software

As online activities and e-commerce continue to grow in the COVID-19 environment, many brick and mortar businesses are re-positioning themselves and offering their products and services online. While the digital and virtual space present new opportunities for businesses and startups, there are also new challenges and legal risks involved.

If you are contemplating engaging an app developer to develop a new app (or any online platform) for you, you should seek legal advice to ensure that your interests are protected and you get what you pay for and there are no surprises!

If you are a software developer and you wish to commercialise your software as a service, it is important that you seek advice on how best to structure your licensing arrangements and ensure that your valuable intellectual property in the software is “quarantined” and kept in from safe potential claims.

If on the other hand you are an end-user and are looking to license a software from a software licensor, it is also advisable to seek advice and understand your obligations under the licence agreement and take proactive steps to ensure you comply with the terms of the licence agreement. 

We can also assist to draft the following:

  1. End user licence agreement

  3. Terms of service
