With so many complex points to consider in software licensing agreements — including intellectual property, warranties, limitations of liability, performance standards, acceptance testing procedures, and change orders, to name a few — mastering the skills you need to negotiate and draft these deals has become both more difficult and more crucial. The evolving industry landscape, new development and distribution methods, and ever-changing regulatory requirements have put increased pressure on software vendors and end-users alike not only to adapt, but to get ahead while minimizing friction, maximizing revenue, and finding some common ground. In this challenging arena, creating an airtight agreement that satisfies your client and avoids disputes and litigation is difficult for even the most experienced attorneys, executives, and managers. You can’t afford to miss this opportunity to arm yourself with the information, strategies, and tactics you need to draft and negotiate successful software licensing agreements.

American Conference Institute has developed its 11th National Conference on Software Licensing Agreements to bring you the most current information on the important legal developments affecting software licensing, and to provide you with the practical business strategies you need to make your agreements and relationships into winning ventures. As always, this conference brings together a preeminent faculty of leading attorneys and executives from software licensors, end-users, developers, and distributors, who will provide you with perspectives and expertise from both sides of the table on:
Analyzing open source risks and developing successful risk management practices
Preventing domestic and international privacy violations
Establishing mutually agreeable service levels for support, maintenance, and repair
Negotiating risk allocation provisions
Defining the scope of licensing rights and restrictions with an effective license grant
Implementing and maintaining sound confidentiality policies
Adjusting to key changes in the industry
You also can add value to your attendance by taking advantage of our Master Class on Negotiating, Drafting, and Streamlining Your Software Licenses. This practical and interactive session will be led by expert practitioners who will give participants an intimate look at how to tackle tough negotiating and drafting issues in these often complex contracts to ensure that you get the most benefit and protection from such documents.
