Technology Contracts: Software & IP Licensing Agreements
Carefully managed licensing will allow a business to maximise the income stream generated by its portfolio of intellectual property rights.
We can advise on the appropriate licence structure for your software or any of your intellectual property assets, whether they be copyright, trade marks or patents. ‘Bespoke’ agreements can be drafted to reflect your particular requirements or, we can advise you in relation to a standard form contract to which you have been asked to sign up – even where it is apparently "non-negotiable".
As with software development agreements, we give practical advice and try to strike a sensible commercial balance between what the "techies" have specified, what the lawyers want in an ideal world and what the businesses actually need. We also advise in relation to Open Source software issues.
