Title: Software Licencing Models

Abstract: "Licencing underpins the commercial and non-commercial exploitation of intellectual property. It is fundamental to the IT sector and comes in a multitude of forms. This presentation will explore the most common forms of licencing, what they aim to achieve and how they achieve (or not) their objectives. Several case studies will be given."

Please note that this presentation applies to all kinds of software, including research tools, _not_ only software with commercial applications.

If you are involved in developing software of any kind, for any application, then I strongly encourage you to attend this presentation. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the legal environment for the development and use of software.

UniQuest is the commercialisation arm of the University of Queensland. They have extensive experience with software licensing in particular and intellectual property issues in general. This seminar is an ideal opportunity to ask any questions you may have about these issues.
