This session focuses on the legal issues of ownership, protection and exploitation of software in this area, looking at both traditional “royalty bearing” licensing and free and open source licensing, and the provision of services “in the cloud” as opposed to on premise licensing. We also look at the use and protection of databases and their licensing.
