App Developers Agreement
An app developers agreement will help prevent an app developer you hire from stealing your idea and using it for their own gain. This is an essential requirement if you want to ensure that your intellectual property is protected and you want to limit your liability if your app developer is later sued for patent infringement.
Got a brilliant idea for an app but are worried that any app developer you hire to build it may steal your idea for their own gain?
Your worries aren’t entirely unfounded but there is an easy way to ensure that your app idea remains yours legally, and it’s with an app developers agreement. Be sure to get an app developer you hire to sign this agreement. Then your intellectual property will remain yours and prevent your app developer from stealing your idea and sharing it.
One other important point is that an app developers agreement will also limit your liability if your app developer is later sued for patent infringement. An app developers agreement is not a legal requirement for building and selling an app. However, in the name of good legal practice, we recommend that you get it and don’t take any risks with this area of your business.
The potential legal issues that could arise in the future aren’t worth it and they’re easily avoidable with an app developers agreement in place.
