The Legal Framework for Software Licensing Part A

Software represents the creative output of developers/programmers, therefore, the ownership of the proprietary rights/interest of the software and the rules protecting such rights have become increasingly important issues for many technology-led businesses.

Over the next four weeks, in the course of a four-part series, we will examine the regulatory framework for software licensing and the categories of software; licensing regime for software and different types of licensing arrangements; and the ownership and registrability of software under intellectual property law in different jurisdictions.
