When acquiring systems for your business, an important, but often overlooked consideration is intellectual property. For example, are you entitled to modify software to better integrate with your business? What if the original provider goes out of business, can you enlist a third party to support your systems?
At Azrights we love technology. In our own business we keep up with the latest thinking on technology and the law, and are constantly developing our practice and procedures to deliver legal services more efficiently and cost effectively.
We are well placed to assist with:
- Software development and maintenance contracts
- Distribution arrangements
- Hardware procurement contracts
- Service supply arrangements
- Software licensing including ‘shrink-wrap' and ‘click-wrap'
- Know-how protection and technology licensing
- Data protection & privacy law issues
We offer industry knowledge, combined with a detailed understanding of intellectual property, contract law, and the internet, as well as other applicable laws.
Taking care to protect your technology through appropriate contractual agreements before you are committed to a transaction will reduce the risks of your being involved in litigation later on.
Ensuring that you are free to use and adapt the systems on which your business relies in worst case scenarios will help you avoid costly difficulties in future.
