  • Mobile Health Industry Asks for HIPAA Clarity and Simplification

    The App Association and leading mobile health companies today called on Congress to adopt a more sensible implementation of health privacy laws.

  • Using copyright law to sue the pants off sites publishing nude photos

    It seems there have always been scandalous pictures and videos of celebrities.

Last week, Apple announced it created or contributed 629,000 jobs across Europe, attributing over 500,000 of these to the app economy, as reported in ZDNet by Charlie Osborne. We saw similar [...]

  • ACT and Ukraine: Related in more ways than one

    One month from today I was supposed to board a plane, fly to Ukraine, and serve as an education volunteer through the Peace Corps for 27 months – but instead I’m at ACT.  Plans change pretty quickly when your future host country turns into a hotbed of political dispute, and you end up loving your [...]
