Beyond SaaS: Licensing Strategies for Today’s Tech (Jun 2020)

Perpetual licenses are rare, “term” licenses have become subscriptions, and the phrase “software-as-a-service” falls short of describing today’s technology offerings. This presentation discusses recent developments in licensing such as aggregation of rights under the FTC’s and DOJ’s updated Antitrust Guidelines for the Licensing of Intellectual Property, “app-store” requirements, and data bundling. Also explore practical approaches to finding the balance between monetizing technology and managing risks from both the provider’s and the recipient’s perspective.
