“Hey, check this out,” your sister says. “I've been using this really cool medical app. This article says that they're suing a company copying them. Should I be worried?”

She messages you the link. Switching into law student mode, you read through it and quickly identify the relevant legal facts:

  1. The app is called Prognosis: Your Diagnosis; it helps medical students and doctors improve their ability to diagnose and treat patients.
  2. Prognosis uses a unique simulation format, technology, UI, and catalog all designed to achieve this. The app has 465 individual simulations, each covering a different disease.
  3. Medical Joyworks, the creators of Prognosis, claim that a multi-billion dollar “educational technology” startup in an Asian country has copied their app.
