Who Owns Your Website? Who Owns Your Code?
With the success and prevalence of online platforms like Freelancer, Upwork (formerlyElance-oDesk), Fiverr and Skillbridge, more and more businesses are outsourcing and offshoring their website, app and software development to India, the Philippines and other foreign jurisdictions, yet most organisations fail to recognise the risks and pitfalls associated with offshoring. Even if you use a local provider or websites such as Weebly or Wix, you may find that they control your website.
Sydney-based technology lawyer and author Alan Arnott will share the traps that Australian organisations can fall into by outsourcing software development and what steps can be taken to minimise the associated risks. If you have a website, you cannot afford to miss Alan’s presentation.
The IT Forum Gold Coast is delighted to have confirmed Cr Hermann Vorster attendance who will also be introducing our guest speaker. Hermann is the Chair of Economic Development & Major Projects and Council Committee member of City Planning, City Infrastructure and Special Budget.
Those attending the talk will receive a copy of his book “Stellar Results Through Technology Contract Negotiations”. The IT Forum Gold Coast will also be launching a new member benefit compliments of Alan’s firm, Arnotts Technology Lawyers.
When: Thursday, 27th of April, 2017 from 5:30 pm – 8 pm.
Where: Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, 158 Ferny Ave, Surfers Paradise QLD
