The ABA’s Business Law Section has recently published A Practical Guide to Software Licensing for Licensees and Licensors, 6th ed. by H. Ward Classen. This book looks at the issues that both the licensor and licensee will likely encounter during the course of software licensing negotiations. In particular, the author covers the negotiating and contract process, terminology of a license grant, the types of licenses, ancillary clauses, boilerplate clauses, software development agreements, confidentially provisions, trade secret information, and escrow agreements. Security and privacy, free and open source software, dispute resolution, and best practices for contract drafting are also among the topics discussed. There are select model forms available and a glossary and technology acronyms list are among the materials in the appendices. The library now has this under call number KF3024.C6 C56 2016 on the new titles shelf located across from the reference desk.
