In addition to the use of software, a software licensing agreement also governs the rules for redistributing the product. Limitation of liability – To what extent are the parties` potential commitments under the agreement limited by the nature of the loss in question? A BJUE is similar to a rental agreement in which the purchaser does not rent real estate or physical property, but pays the use of the software in the manner stipulated in the contract. This means that the user complies with all the restrictions specified by the software author or publisher in the LAE. These restrictions may include a lifespan (for example. B a subscription), a limited number of downloads (z.B installation on 5 computers or other electronic devices) and much more. Companies that license customers to use proprietary software should consider a CLA. These include saaS developers, software developers and mobile app developers. 2. The licensee acknowledges that this is only a limited and non-exclusive licence. The licensee is and will remain the owner of all titles, rights and shares of the software.
In general, a general terms agreement covers more subjects and is much broader than an EEA. An end-user license agreement gives users the right to use the software and only covers software licensing issues. As noted above, the main purpose of an EEA is to license an application to an end-user. For this reason, all end-user licensing agreements should have a section expressly stating that a license is granted. In this section, it is announced that the application is provided “as intended” and that if an end user is not satisfied with the software or application, the licensee or provider is not responsible for improving the software or application to satisfy the end user. For financial reasons, the licensee may restrict the definition of the licensee. The broader the definition of the taker, the more companies or individuals who have access to the software and the use of licensed software, which reduces the potential royalties that a licensee can receive.
