Interactive Workshop: Legal Protection for Coders & Programming Professionals

July 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Attorneys Jennifer Calcagni and Sherwin Yoder will hold a legal workshop for coders and programming professionals on Tuesday, July 30, 2019. The focus of this workshop will be on the legal issues related to programming and website/mobile app development work, and will focus on such topics as:

  • Beware the fine print! Pitfalls related to service agreement and licensing provisions.
  • Freelancing versus work-made-for-hire. Who owns the code?
  • Protecting your intellectual property and avoiding misuse of intellectual property. What about algorithms?
  • 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 if your site or app is not accessible to disabled users?
  • What could go wrong if your code doesn’t perform as promised?
