Increasingly, software is playing a larger role in business operations. Because of this, understanding United States software licensing law has become essential for both developers and users. Software licensing typically gives someone else the right to use the code or software. These rights are defined by the software license, and usually they grant less rights than when a copy of the software is sold. Besides public domain material, all software is copyright protected. If you have questions, let our software attorneys assist you.
