Klisto Services To Be Discontinued

Due to a lack of demand, our Klisto® web-based services, including cloud syncing and access to Klisto.com, will be discontinued and will go offline on Monday October 20th at 11:59 PM EDT. We are sending this notice so that customers have adequate time to export their data. After this date you will not be able to access data via Klisto.com or sync your Klisto mobile app with our cloud services. You *will* still be able to use the Klisto iOS app to store data locally on your mobile device. Customers who purchased the Klisto iOS app will still be able to install it via iTunes.

During the next 60 days, all users with current subscriptions, or who purchased the app or a monthly subscription within the past 6 months, will be provided with access to Klisto services without the need to renew their monthly subscription. Effective immediately, the Klisto iOS app and in-app-purchase subscriptions will no longer be available for purchase.

Instructions for exporting your data are available on our blog home page at http://smallmobile.infogenium.com/ .

We apologize to our loyal customers. Our internet services did not meet the level of demand required for a sustainable business. Over the next few weeks we will be considering what to do next, including the possibility of a simplified mobile-only product offering. Please feel free to contact us at this email address if you have any questions.

4 Legal References for SMBs and Informed Readers

Old Tyme Legal AdWhether or not you are a small business owner, you are probably exposed to legal topics on a regular basis. There are daily news developments regarding patent lawsuits, especially in the mobile arena. “I’m not a lawyer” (INAL) is a common phrase you’ll see on message boards and blogs as individuals seek informal guidance on areas such as business formation and Intellectual Property (IP) issues.

While you always have the option of consulting a licensed attorney, you may first want to do your own research so you can have an informed conversation. I’ve found the publications from Nolo® to be extremely helpful for general and business-specific legal knowledge. Here are some recommendations from my personal library.

Nolo’s Encyclopedia of Everyday Law – covers a variety of subjects for your business and home, and is a good first step when you begin your research.

Form Your Own Limited Liability Company – Covers what an LLC is and compares it to other business entities. Member/manager responsibilities and tax issues are covered in detail. Takes you step by step through the process of forming your own LLC. Nolo has similar references available should you choose another entity type such as an S Corp, C Corp or Partnership.

Legal Guide to Web & Software Development – covers areas such as licensing agreements, contracts and IP law (trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and patents). Whether you are building your own web site or software, or contracting out development projects, this is a very useful guide.

Trademark: Legal Care for Your Business & Product Name – from your company and product names to your logo, trademarks are something you’ll want to learn about. What exactly is the difference between TM, SM and ®, when can you use them, and what can be trademarked? You’ll find out here. You will also learn how to conduct a trademark search, which is helpful if you are marketing a new product or service. A registered trademark will provide the most protection. This guide also walks you through the process of registering your trademark with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

For tablet and e-reader users, these books are available in electronic format, so you can refer to them any time no matter where you are.

Klisto™ Mobile Database for the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch® is now available on the Apple AppStore. Your data synced on your devices and the cloud.

“Nolo” is a federally registered trademark. All trademarks appearing here are the property of their respective owners. This article is not legal advice and I am not a lawyer. If you require professional assistance you should consult with an attorney licensed in your state. I figured I should add this paragraph based on what I learned in the books I just mentioned =)
