Software Related Terms (2019)
Research projects often involve the use or development of software and associated technology to achieve a variety of project objectives. Software may be developed according to design specifications provided by the sponsor or created or used by a researcher as a means of solving a problem. Contract terms may be needed to address the development, ownership, use, and modification of software as applicable to the statement of work. Software rights are complex but well-drafted terms help to prevent misunderstandings and disputes between parties. This webinar provides a summary of software-specific terms and issues that arise in negotiations between universities and industry sponsors in sponsored research agreements.
