Beltug, the Belgian Association of Digital Technology Leaders, organizes a seminar on Software Licences for procurement and legal professionals at the Hotel Abbey in Grimbergen.
Erik's presentation will identify key software contract attention points, including how to draft them, the link with copyright laws and the dangers of using language from contracts based on US or English law.
Software licences are far from transparent, and there is little room for negotiation.
Beltug has been touching on this issue for several years, including speaking with software suppliers and other stakeholders, creating the Proposal for a Software Publishers’ Code of Conduct and, recently, transposing its principles into concrete contract clauses.
During this session, the importance of a solid contract, for both parties and the contract clause models that have been built, and how you can use them, will be discussed. Software procurement in the public sector is also on the agenda.
