Software Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Jun 17, 2023

Software agreement and customizations?

I am a small business owner who is interested in entering into a software agreement with a third-party software provider. The software agreement outlines the terms of use, ownership, and licensing of the software. However, I am unsure of what customizations are allowed under the agreement and would like to know what modifications can be made without voiding the agreement.

There are no universal software agreements, and the answer to your specific question will lie within the terms of the agreement. However, if I were writing a software agreement for a company, I would prohibit all customization and modification of software by end users, without a specific developer license agreement and the right to incorporate the changes into my final product, with our without compensation. As they say, your mileage may vary.
