About this document
This custom software development agreement records the terms set between the client and the software developer. Whilst it is fair to both parties, it is the developer's interests that are most protected. The document can be edited to suit a client.
For software developers, this agreement will form the terms and conditions with your clients. Clients too, can use this agreement to ensure they get a good deal. The software agreement is especially useful if you outsource software development work. In such cases, the terms provided by the developer may not fully protect your interests - it may for example, be drawn for use in another country. Use this international agreement to protect your business.

The document was great: very clear and with appropriate options (particularly around the ownership of intellectual property). The guidance notes were helpful, but most importantly, the agreement is clearly and straightforwardly worded.
