Mobile applications are in use more than ever. Internet giants such as Facebook, Apple and Google as well as thousands of online businesses like Tesco, H&M and British Airways offer mobile applications, but with growing popularity come more legal issues.

This one-day interactive forum will discuss:

Ownership issues: who owns what in the app? What are the T&Cs? Content issues: what is allowed?
Intellectual property issues: copyright, patents and trade marks in the app
Data protection and privacy: who controls the flow of personal information and what are the relevant privacy policies?
Cross-border issues: apps go beyond country borders and jurisdictions - which laws and rules apply?
Children and minors: apps are extremely popular among teenagers and youngsters
How to restrict access and verify a user’s age?

This is an essential event for all:

Legal Practitioners in data protection, IT and TMT
Government Bodies and Regulators
App Developers
Online Businesses
