“Software as a Service” (SaaS) agreements are often confused with software licenses, but the two couldn’t be more different. So, if you are like most TTOs and 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:
