Many companies seem to believe that there is a unique form agreement circulating among software lawyers with perfect conditions that cannot be cut and inserted into their agreements, so they can find the right lawyer who can provide that „perfect“ form arrangement. The reality, of course, is that simple cutting and insertion from a formal agreement – even a very well written form agreement – is not the right way to conceive of this kind of agreement. While there are absolutely standard terms that you`ll find in all software agreements – whether it`s SaaS or software licenses – that can serve as the basis for high-quality software models for the software license or the SaaS model, a well-developed contract is more than just a selection of „correct“ terms. Instead, it reflects the actual offer of products for customers.

Neither the transmission of this type of legal document, nor the transmission of the information contained on this site, should establish a legal and client relationship between the lawyer and the client, and their receipt does not constitute a legal and client relationship.

The first paragraph of each story should follow the convention „who, what, when and where.“ A well-developed licensing agreement will also follow this method. We ensure that the activity elements of the deal (what is conceded, the cost of the license, the volume and duration of the license) are included directly after the definition section.
You will be pleased to know that the main business elements of the agreement are addressed close to the front of the agreement, thus avoiding that you will have to pay page by page to find the price of the software or the terms of payment. In addition to restrictions on the use of the software, the creation of software licensing agreements should also take into account geographic restrictions regarding the use of the software. Most licensees limit the use of software to a particular country or website. If the use of the software is not limited to a given country or geographic location, this can also lead to a number of export problems. In addition, the limitation of geographical scope is closely linked to the redress of intellectual property rights. In the absence of a geographical restriction for the use of the licensed software, the scope of the compensation granted by the licensee may be extended. 12.5. Cisco Partnership Operations. If you purchase Cisco Technology from a Cisco partner, the terms and conditions of this CLU apply to your use of this Cisco technology and prevail over the inconsistent provisions of your agreement with partner Cisco.
7.1. Claims. Cisco will defend against you any claim by third parties that your valid use of Cisco technology, under your claim, violates the patent, copyright or trademark of third parties (the „IP claim“). Cisco will compensate you for the final judgment of a competent court or comparisons resulting from an IP application, provided that you: a) immediately inform Cisco in writing of the IP claim; (b) cooperate fully with Cisco to defend the IP claim; and (c) grant Cisco the right to exclusively control the defence and resolution of the IP claim and any subsequent complaints.
