Ice Miller's information technology (“IT”) and software licensing attorneys provide assistance tailored to a college’s or university’s particular needs, which frequently cover a range of different types of agreements.
The IT and software licensing legal services that we provide involve licensing of software and related professional services (whether installed on client hardware or delivered through the cloud as a SaaS service), hosting agreements, access to and control of digital information, privacy and data security issues, internet access and service level agreements, and usage or electronic commerce transactions. To provide comprehensive solutions responding to our clients' needs in this area, we collaborate with and draw upon the experiences of professionals in other related practice areas, such as international trade, tax, health and litigation.
Our attorneys have substantial experience in negotiating software related agreements from both the point of view of a software provider and a software acquirer. We represent several software providers, including software providers in the fields of financial transactions, debt collection, accounting systems, services management systems, electronic marketing management tools, sales lead management systems and manufacturing ERP and CRM systems. As a result of their deep experience, our software and IT attorneys have a breadth of legal knowledge and depth of industry experience in the field of software transactions, data protection and privacy matters.
