West Coast Lunchtime Legal Briefing: By Design – Why Smart App Developers Don’t Wait Until Launch Before Thinking About IP and Data Privacy Matters

Practices: Intellectual Property Transactions, Intellectual Property Litigation, Patent Litigation Industries: Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Internet, e-Commerce & Social Media

The app marketplace has redefined consumer expectations for software and platforms. A robust, easy-to-navigate multimedia experience has become the baseline norm for many, yet concerns continue to linger regarding what data is collected through those experiences and what is done with that data. But multimedia experiences quickly complicate the IP issues associated with apps, and governments are paying closer attention to app data handling practices. 
Instead of playing catch-up, consumer-oriented companies of all sizes recognize the importance of incorporating IP and Data Privacy considerations into the design of their apps at all stages.  
Jim DeGraw and Michelle Visser presented at the Ropes & Gray West Coast Lunchtime Legal Briefing. They explored these issues and outlined best practices for dealing with IP and Data Privacy matters by design.

1.0 hour MCLE was provided.
