Software Development and Commercialization: Contract Basics for Commercial Lawyers

September 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

In an increasingly on-line world where new technology appears on the market at lightning speed, clients with software ideas look to commercial lawyers for advice on how to safely and profitably develop and commercialize their products. Even when the software will be used in a non-tech industry, intellectual property provisions need to be carefully considered.

Information Technology and Intellectual Property lawyers Silvia de Sousa and David Carrick will review the key components of software development agreements and software license agreements.

In addition to discussing each of these agreements in general terms, Silvia and David will describe the significant risks in each of these agreements from the perspective of each side – i.e.:

  • third party software developer vs. customer who is paying for the development; and
  • licensor vs. licensee;

and will also demonstrate how these risks can be addressed in meaningful negotiations.
