AIIA, law firm launch online legal guide

The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and law firm Gilbert & Tobin have launched Software Legal Guide, a legal toolkit for software developers and suppliers.

Solution 6 managing director Becky McGaw launched the guide, which will be augmented by a series of practical legal workshops.

The guide outlines proactive steps that can be taken to exploit and protect developers of software and to reduce the risk of liability.

Gilbert & Tobin first developed the Software Legal Guide in 1993 as a legal toolkit for business, where it is considered to be the definitive guide for software legal issues. The guide has been substantially updated in preparation for its online release. The new version is more accessible, easier to search, quicker to reference and allows Gilbert & Tobin to update legal developments as they occur.

An example of the Software Legal Guide is available on the AIIA's website, http://www.aiia.com.au, which will be relaunched on August 8.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
