[email protected], UCT Faculty of Law, is pleased to present a self-paced online course on software law.
Several areas of law affect the creation and commercialisation of software. Software law refers to the legal remedies available to protect software-based assets. Software may, under various circumstances and various countries, be restricted by patent or copyright or both. Most commercial software is sold under some kind of software license agreement.
This self-paced online course explores those areas of the law that are most applicable, and will attempt to give guidelines on how to deal with common legal issues that arise in relation to software. Starting from intellectual property law, the course then covers various other topics such as open source software, escrow, and the practicalities of common agreements. Sign up at any time and work at your own page to learn more about the legal issues surrounding software!
The course is presented by an attorney who is a former software developer who has specialised in ICT law for some years.
The course is aimed at anyone involved in the commercialisation of software, including in-house legal advisors, IT managers, software developers and anyone else seeking a practical understanding of the area.
