Software licensing and open source

Are you a developer preparing to license your software? Are you considering licensing software or incorporating open source software into your IT infrastructure? At Zacco, we can help you find the best legal solutions.

Licensing software can be a complex endeavour for licensor and licensee alike and often involves both substantial investments and long-lasting commitments. Tailoring sustainable, balanced and cost-effective legal solutions requires skill, experience and creativity. Our team of experts will guide you through all steps of the process, making sure that all relevant questions are properly addressed and that the right choices are made.

Open source software: A popular solution

Open source software has become popular for many reasons. Users may acquire the software free of charge and modify it as required or purchase commercial products that bundle up open source developments and support them through a life cycle in the ways necessary for many enterprise production deployments. Knowledge about the licence forms and other significant aspects, however, is vital for a successful adaption and integration. Not knowing the legal consequences of using open source could put the ownership of the software at stake.

It’s our business to know your business

Learning about the key aspects of your business will help our team to protect it and to secure your competitive advantage. That is why we strive to build long-term relationships with our clients. A clear understanding of how you work is essential to finding the best legal solutions for your business.
