Software Licensing

planit legal softwarelizenzen

Protecting your intellectual property is a key success factor when selling software and digital products.

Regardless of whether you want to develop software individually or sell standard software, rent it out or offer it as Software as a Service (SaaS). You must always pay special attention to licensing and copyright issues. Software licenses must fit to your business model and you should not grant the customer any rights that prevent further marketing and distribution of your software and digital products. We advise you on all questions regarding software licensing law.
