At least 43% of SME’s look online
when they’re faced with a legal issue.

You scroll through thousands and thousands of results, trying to pick the lawyer best suited to your legal needs.

if there is a lawsuit, in which location will it be held?
Are you going to be willing to fly to the country to resolve a dispute?
Are the laws that you would normally rely upon be even enforceable against the other party in the country the developer lives in?

If you do not know the answers to these questions, you are
opening yourself up to a lot of risk.

Make sure that each stage in your technology’s
development you have the legal documents you need.

If you don’t have the legal documents you need…

You could run into any number of legal issues.

Your Developers Take Too Long

A large program can have more components than a car, and these components can interact in increasingly different ways. The majority of software developers do not meet their deadlines. If the deadline for your project is important as it may impact the amount you make in profits in that quarter, write it into your contracts.

In 2009, an Australian company hired a developer to build a database of flight information and prices they could use to sell tickets. However, they sued the web developer for delivering the product late and loss of potential profits.

The Product Is Not Up to Specification

If you do not have an outsourcing agreement or freelancer agreement which lays out the specification of your product that you expect then you can not be surprised when the developer provides you with something with a terrible UX, is slow or open to cyber attacks

They Overcharge Or Go Over Budget

If you do not have a contract in place that states what the price is per hour or per project, then you open yourself up to snowballing fees and a losing legal case.

The IP Belongs To Your Developer And Not You

When outsourcing software development, you should never assume the code provided by the service provider is 100% original. By using it without the permission of the original creator you could be violating copyright. If you want original code, you need to ensure this is emphasised to your developer when you first reach out and also when you draw up the contracts.

Another common cause of litigation is who owns the Intellectual Property of the newly developed technology?

If you have no agreement regulating IP ownership then you could open yourself to decades of litigation.

When you develop your agreement you need to ensure that you agree to one of the following:

– The client owns the IP of all outsourced relationships, with the vendors having the possibility of using the IP through a licensing agreement.
– The developer owns the technology with the client being given a license agreement through negotiations.
