Legal Bootcamp for Mobile Developers

Innovation continues to skyrocket in the mobile space, but many developers don't realize that they're creating apps against a complex -- and often murky -- legal backdrop. This presentation will identify and discuss some of the key legal issues mobile developers should know about. We'll discuss the laws that apply to activities like jailbreaking devices, reverse engineering code, transmitting and storing user information, and intercepting communications. We'll also talk about practical steps you can take to reduce your risk so that you can go about your work with less potential for legal trouble.
