Heya, I have worked as an in-house counsel as well as a firm attorney in AU, but mostly dealt with US patents. What're you looking to do?

Hi! Probably best to discuss over DM. I'll shoot you a message there

Hey folks, about to begin a project for a client ( mobile app to be distributed within a group of testers - no release to the app store yet ) and we're currently negotiating the contract. They insist on an indemnity clause which goes like this _"The Contractor agrees to indemnify, defend, and protect the Ordering Party from and against all lawsuits and costs of every kind pertaining to the Application including reasonable legal fees due to the Contractor's infringement of the intellectual rights of any third party."_ . In my eyes, this shifts all risk on me even if there's a claim that eventually proves that I didn't violate any 3rd party IP. Are there any smart approaches to minimise the risk on a Contractor here? I thought about extending the clause to mention exclusions ( e.g. code modified by someone else; app used in a different way - e.g. release to the store by another dev ) or adding a cap on liability up to the value of the project ( since I am not a LLC just a sole trader and clients is LLC ). Thanks!

I always put my contracts under extreme scrutiny. Don't back down! Do not sign the contract if they are not willing to make this clause more specific to you and to relieve you from indemnity that has nothing to do with your involvement. For instance this above clause also means that if there is no infringement whatsoever, but someone sues the company you need to foot the legal bills
hidden for non-members2mo
but it does say 'due to the Contractor's infringement '
hidden for non-members2mo
this may mean you're not liable if you didn't infringe
hidden for non-members2mo
ask a lawyer
hidden for non-members2mo
which country?
hidden for non-members2mo
Myself - Poland, Client - UK
hidden for non-members2mo
sounded like UK. in the UK the courts are very reasonable. they overrule unreasonable contract clauses and enact the perceived intention of the contracting parties
hidden for non-members2mo
you're probably safe with this one
hidden for non-members2mo
I'm sure it does say that the jurisdiction is that of England and Wales
hidden for non-members2mo
Contract is actually supplied by me and jurisdiction is Poland. The clause I've mentioned comes as an addon from the Client.
hidden for non-members2mo
right, and how do the Polish courts understand this usually? Word by word or intent?
hidden for non-members2mo
I would need to check with the lawyer ^
hidden for non-members2mo
I suggest you do
hidden for non-members2mo
that's an absurd clause
hidden for non-members2mo
do not rely on an expectation that it would be struck down as unreasonable
hidden for non-members2mo
just don't accept it in the first place

To anyone whose migrated to Canada, especially people from the UK!

I'm on the IEC in Canada (two year working holiday visa) and currently working full time employed as a software developer. My IEC runs out in March 2021 where I would then have to return to the UK.

I want to stay in Canada, would a Permanent Residency or a Work Permit be the better choice, and how do I go about applying for one?

Thanks!

Q) How to acquire permanent residency after you've found a full-time job in Canada?
