Drafting and Negotiating SaaS Agreements: Best Practices for University Tech Transfer Offices

“Software as a Service” (SaaS) agreements are often confused with software licenses, but the two couldn’t be more different. So, if you are using a boilerplate license agreement for your SaaS innovations, stop immediately!

The misconception lies in the term “software.” For instance, a license agreement grants the licensee the right to use and house the software in-house, whereas the SaaS agreement is granting the user access to the software. This distinction raises a host of other issues that need to be addressed in the agreement in order to protect data, comply with regulatory issues, and ultimately protect your IP. That’s why Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has scheduled this critically important webinar: Drafting and Negotiating SaaS Agreements: Best Practices for University Tech Transfer Offices, scheduled for next Tuesday, December 10, featuring Silicon Valley attorney and tech licensing expert Kristie D. Prinz of Prinz Law Office. Join us as Ms. Prinz takes a deep dive into best practices for drafting and negotiating SaaS agreements. For complete program details and to register, CLICK HERE.
