Do you know how to draft a contract for a mobile application?
How does a technology contract differ from a regular one?
What do you need to know to protect a proprietary product?
Few days ago two clients approached me for advice regarding their new deal. They were two young application developers and wanted to get into business with their alma mater for a trial run. They had not applied for any registration at this stage, so they were apprehensive that their app might be ripped off by the students using them in the trial phase. They came to me for drafting necessary contracts which would protect their interests.
My first idea was to have them apply for a trademark and copyright registration for their application. I could also draft a contract for them. But from what I understood, there was nothing proprietary in their idea. That was another problem I faced. I did not have enough understanding about coding to understand the functioning of the application. So I asked for their proposal and told them to explain the application and its function.
One of the most difficult things as a lawyer is to extract relevant information from the clients. They explained the technological aspects in great detail. I needed to know if there was any uniqueness or utility factor that made them eligible for a patent application, but I honestly had a tough time simplifying what they said. I needed to draft a contract, which I knew how, but the technological aspects made it extremely confusing for me.
As lawyers, we need to keep learning about laws and updating ourselves. But we need to also know about the other subject matter and industry if we want to expand ourselves. Eventually, we managed getting a stable agreement in place and I put all the necessary clauses for them to be protected. I also took help from a friend who deals in such matters regularly just to be safe.
But this incident brought forth my own gap in understanding and knowledge. I looked up online what all I should know and do to improve my expertise in this area. There were books, short certificate courses in both law and technology.
I checked out their syllabus and was underwhelmed. I need a thorough understanding of the subject with practical applications. So I wanted something better and comprehensive than certificate course for cyber laws. But being a working professional, I also needed learning to be flexible enough to earn and learn at the same time.
