International Software License Agreement
Index of the contract
In the International Software License Agreement, the owner of the rights to use a certain software (the Licensor) authorises a third party (the Licensee) to use it, in exchange for a price. The main feature of this type of agreement is that the granting of the license does not include transferring the ownership of the software; in other words, the Licensor still owns the software.
Certain general terms and conditions (installation, duration, price and form of payment, warranty, etc.) are established based on technical concepts used in the Agreement. The Licensee has to agree to these terms and conditions, and is not usually able to negotiate them with the Licensor.
If the owner of the Software wishes to use a distributor to grant Software Licenses to end users (companies or individuals) in a specific foreign territory (usually, a country), then the International Software Distribution Agreement must be used.
This agreement is specifically drafted for granting software licenses in international markets; however, with a few changes it can also be used when the Licensor and the Licensee are located in the same country.
The language of this contract is English. It is available also in Spanish.
