Description

Mobile applications are one of the fastest growing computer software sectors. Novice and experienced software developers need to have access to software ecosystems, developer toolkits, and in certain circumstances open source materials to efficiently and effectively create applications. An important aspect in the development life cycle relates to intellectual property planning, including where mobile apps can qualify for intellectual property protection and how they can avoid the pitfalls of intellectual property infringement. This course will cover intellectual property case law developments covering computer software protection including copyright, patent, trade secret and trademarks. The course will also explore through lecture and class exercises topics facing a mobile app developer including open source, cloud computing and unique mobile app development life cycle issues.
