Software development rights


If you have created or developed software, you should ensure that you are protecting your rights to it. If you intend to commercially exploit it, you need to ensure that licensing arrangements are properly drafted in the best interests of your business. Similarly, if you use software in the course of your business, you need to ensure that your use of it is lawful (in terms of both IT and IP laws) and can be continued long term.

We have outlined some of the major points to consider about the law regulating software, including:

  • Software development
  • Contractual agreements
  • Licensing

Protecting your rights to software is closely related to IP law. You can find more information on this in our intellectual property section which is located within the commercial section.
