Topic:Website Development Legal Issues & Liabilities: How Can Developers Protect Their Business?
The development, use, and maintenance of a website can expose developers to risks and potential liabilities under state and federal law. These issues range from contract matters, content ownership, design defects, and security mishaps. When these issues arise, the critical question for designers and their clients becomes who is liable?
Please join us as we welcome attorney Jason Shinn, Shinn Legal, PLC (www.shinnlegal.com), he will be presenting to the Walsh College Open Source Community an overview of the legal issues most commonly faced in the lifecycle of website development – contract, design, to ongoing operation – and discussing best practices for developers to eliminate or limit their risks throughout that lifecycle.
