Need help/advice with legality surrounding production of iphone application (worried about idea being stolen)
Hi I need someone who has studied law and is properly qualified to help advise me on what actions to take/ provide me with the correct forms etc to ensure the security of my application idea.
I have been developing this application for the last few months alongside an odesk developer, who has completed about half of his contract now he has gone missing, and odesk cannot track him.
Before he begun he signed an NDA but that's about it. I need someone who may be able to write up a document that I can send to the developer telling him that I will be needing all the work that he has completed so far on my app and threatening him that if he steals my idea and develops the app himself, there will be consequences.
I will also need advice on whether I can get my app copy-write/ patented?
I would prefer to choose an applicant with English as their first language or extremely fluent.
