A business can depend on the software it uses – so understanding how it’s licensed is a crucial aspect, and one that is also often misunderstood.
Usually, a software licence covers:
- What is being licensed and for how long
- The scope of the licence
- Any restriction on use
- The equipment on which it can be used
- Acceptance provisions
- Payment terms
- Intellectual property rights
- Limitation liability
- Warranties and indemnities.
