The Benefits of Protecting Your Contract

There are many legal issues that pertain to software licensing, including the preparation of unique agreements and related documents. Licenses can include terms regarding the ownership of the software, how it is installed, used and maintained. They can also contain information on warranties, customization, liability, indemnification and royalties. When critical terms are omitted or licenses are poorly drafted, it can put your intellectual property rights at risk, and result in lost income and costly litigation. Grimes LLC can use their knowledge to help your software remain protected and prevent future liabilities. This includes licenses such as:

  • Source code licensing
