Software development agreement
This software development agreement has been developed with ease of use in mind. Under this agreement, the developer agrees to create certain software for the customer and to transfer the intellectual property rights in that software to the customer. The customer agrees to pay the developer.
If the developer will retain rights in elements of the software and grant a licence to the customer in respect of those elements, then you should instead consider our premium software development agreement.
If you are starting a new software development business or need a range of software-related legal documents, see our software developer packs.
