Legal considerations when distributing an app

edited March 2014 in Android Mode

Hello everyone

I am currently working on an Android app that is supposed to be distributed over the Play Store. The programming itself went flawlessly so far. Now I am wondering what legal regulations I have to consider when making it a paid app. There are a few existing apps on the Play Store that were developed using Processing but most of them are free. By coding most of the app from scratch I managed to get rid of all library dependencies except for Ketai bluetooth. I am not a company, neither do I expect a lot of people buying it, I just want to make sure not to do something illegal or steal someones intellectual property.

Can you recommend a site where I can get this information from or have you made your own experiences?

Thanks in advance

    If the only library is Ketai make sure its license allows free use for commercial purposes..

    I also suggest that you add your own end user license which limits your liability and a copy of the Ketai license text.
