I am the sole author of a piece of software which I make available free of charge and is widely used (>100,000 downloads). This software is potentially high risk, although I take very great care to keep it safe, and put internal disclaimers within it making its use at the user's own risk where practical.
I am considering purchasing an Extended Validation digital signature in order to sign my software and make it pass Microsoft SmartScreen validation.
In order to do this, I must register a legal business name. I am therefore considering starting a limited company to which I would be the sole subscriber.
Would this in any way increase my legal exposure, beyond what it already is as the sole author of this free software?
