week4 26/08/2011- legal risks telstra? ???   Leave a comment

when talking about legal risk cases for telstra there are a few cases

  • product and service failure risks or delays within the control of the vendor
  • intellectual property liability to third parties within the control of the vendor
  • disclosure of Telstra confidential information (keeping the clients information safe ).

Telstra accepts that for some vendors, accepting liability for the losses Telstra may suffer from some risks which a vendor would normally be expected to bear may make a vendor insolvent.

To accommodate this issue, Telstra has included in its contracts the ability for vendors to limit their liability in certain circumstances but at the same time requires its vendors to take out suitable insurance cover.

Generally, Telstra will consider provisions limiting a vendor’s liability. In some cases the limit may be based on a multiple of the contract value, except for liability for intellectual property infringement, death or injury, property damage and breach of confidentiality, which is to remain unlimited.

The required insurance generally includes cover for statutory liabilities (such as worker’s compensation), public and product liability, professional indemnity for both advice and provision of services, including financial loss, and construction works insurance (where relevant).

pod casting A podcast (or non-streamed webcast) is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication. The word replaced webcast in common use with the success of the iPod and its role in the rising popularity and innovation of web feeds. The mode of delivery differentiates podcasting from other means of accessing media files over the Internet, such as direct download, or streamed webcasting. A list of all the audio or video files currently associated with a given series is maintained centrally on the distributor’s server as a web feed, and the listener or viewer employs special client application software known as a podcatcher that can access this web feed, check it for updates, and download any new files in the series. This process can be automated so that new files are downloaded automatically.example pod casting is use with radio companys show there adverting  http://www.abc.net.au/services/podcasting/
