I've been thinking about creating some free/open source websites and publishing some free/open source mobile apps to the Google Play Store. The aim of the websites/apps are to provide things/information/tools etc. for helping others (perhaps like Wikipedia, but probably on a much smaller scaler).
Of course I hope anything published would only be beneficial to users (and not cause harm), but I recognise nothing's perfect and mistakes happen, so was wondering what mechanisms are available to a person who (in the friendliest way possible) wants to disclaim liability or have users waive their ability to sue you etc.?
I'm a little familiar with open-source licensing (I believe these are designed to help people to distribute their code without any legal risks/implications for users and creators - indeed there are some very simple licenses) so not sure if I could use one of these for this purpose.
Many thanks for any help! :)
