I have built an android app and would like to put it on Google play. I found several articles suggesting it's safer to create a legal entity and put any applications under that entity rather than put them under your name as an individual from a legal perspective.
Although I started this app for fun, I haven't found a similar app on Google play yet and I obviously don't want to find myself personally liable or my assets involved in any way in the odd case the app is not downloaded only by my friends. On the other hand, as I am not building apps for living, I wouldn't want to add all the costs of creating and maintaining a legal entity if the chances of getting into legal problems are next to nothing.
Any one know for a fact it's best to do it one way or another? If I do decide to start as an individual is it possible to change it later on to a separate legal entity?
