Software / Technology Licensing
There are as many forms of technology license agreements as there are deal structures. Many purchasers have "standard" license agreements that are required for the procurement of software systems and applications. These agreements, however, may not readily cover the particular product or related services that a business intends to purchase. Likewise, many licensors have good, standard license agreements but they may only apply to a standard sale. The business professionals may be in advanced negotiations and ready to "close" a deal. Then the battle of the forms begins, and there can be pressure from both sides to get a contract signed so that work can commence and fees can be booked.
