I am not knowledgeable when it comes to IP and copyrights ! Any replies are greatly appreciated!
I am planing to go on Kickstarter with a website that offers speech synthesis to its users. I want legal protection for my users and myself. I do not want the software to be used by others in a malicious fashion. My thoughts to limit that would be ask the site users to register with me using information that will deflect them from being bad. I have three questions.
What kind of information can I legally ask of my users, proof of employment, job letter, banking info ?
Most importantly how can this information be kept safely, I am just a c++ programmer. Are there agencies that will keep this information safe or is it on me to safe guard?
The software can make copies of all synthesized speech summited to it. I can see it milliseconds before anyone else. Can I copyright on the fly or make the user sign away the right to copyright to me?
The software is implemented in a S.A.A.S. model (Software As A Service) like photoshop and the rest of CCS. In this model all speech simulations are conducted on a my backend and then submitted to the user. It features a synthesizer interface for the client to play around with and set conditions.
