Software Licensing

Maeder Law Office represents licensors and licensees in regards to development, negotiation, and review of software licensing agreements. A software licensing agreement should fit the practices of your business model while appropriately reducing risk and protecting business interests. At its most basic level, some of the key issues to consider in software licensing agreements are whether the software license agreement grants the right to use the software as intended and does it restrict the software from being used in a way that is not intended. Other factors to consider are the duration of the software license, number of users authorized to use the software, and any limitations on its use. Additional terms in software license agreements may include update, maintenance, and support of the software, as well as provisions covering risk allocation, warranties, and other types of business transaction terms.
