The purpose of a software license agreement is the transfer of software by a company (developer or distributor) to a purchaser. The latter pays an agreed amount so that the software can be used for a limited or permanent period. The preparation of a software license agreement in Germany requires extreme accuracy because there are many elements to consider.
Important points of the contract include, among other items:
Since software is usually covered by German copyright, this is also the mainstay of all contractual considerations. After all, software transactions of any kind can only be carried out by taking into account the possible forms of copyright law in Germany.
