The Tech Contracts Handbook: Cloud Computing Agreements, Software Licenses, and Other IT Contracts for Lawyers and Businesspeople by David W. Tollen
The Tech Contracts Handbook is a practical and accessible reference and training manual on IT contracts.
It’s a clause-by-clause “how to” guide on cloud computing agreements, software licenses, technology services agreements, and other IT contracts — covering the issues at stake and offering negotiation tips and sample contract language. The first edition was the #1 bestseller for the IP Section of the ABA.
The Tech Contracts Handbook is for both lawyers and businesspeople, including contract managers, procurement officers, corporate counsel, startup CFO’s, and anyone else responsible for contracts. Perhaps most important, the book uses simple English, like a good contract.
Topics covered include:
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscriptions
Open source software
Service level agreements (SLA’s)
Nondisclosure agreements (NDA’s)
Limitations of liability
Source code escrows
Rights in feedback
Clickwraps, browsewraps, and shrinkwraps
Non-compete and non-solicitation clauses
And much more
