This research describes the relationship between laws of the United States and the advancement of app technology, more specifically in contracts with minors. Two questions are explored: (1) whether minors need a bright-line rule for app contracts, and (2) whether the intangible assets exchanged within a mobile app contract can be recovered. Existing research in areas such as intangible assets, financial contracts and contracting with children have been integrated so that mobile app practices might improve and that damages suffered by children might be better defined.
