Software License Agreement Checklist

Step 1: Gather Information

As you complete your software license agreement, you will need to provide certain relevant information. This includes the permitted uses of the software, the software delivery method, installation and testing details, and the fees involved.

Step 2: Answer Key Questions

Use the information you collected to complete the software license agreement. We make this easy by guiding you each step of the way and helping you to customize your document to match your specific needs. The questions and information we present to you dynamically change depending on your answers and the state selected. Click below to get started.

Step 3: Review and Sign

It is always important to read your document thoroughly to ensure it matches your needs and is free of errors and omissions. After completing the questionnaire, you can make textual changes to your document by downloading it in Microsoft Word. If no changes are needed, you can simply download the PDF version and sign. These downloads are available by navigating to the Documents section of your account dashboard.

This agreement allows the parties to sign and deliver copies electronically. Therefore, it is not necessary for both parties to sign a single printed copy of the agreement.

Step 4: Periodically Review and Update

It is easy to forget the ins and outs of your software license agreement. Periodically reviewing it will help you stay familiar with any responsibilities or requirements so that you can determine when it needs changes or additions.

Over time you may need to make changes and updates to the contract. Using a contract amendment allows you to specify your changes without having to create an entirely new agreement. This is helpful when you only need to make a few changes instead of a complete overhaul of the language. 

When the time comes to renew your software license agreement for an additional term, LegalNature makes this process easy by saving your answers to the original agreement within the questionnaire.

Step 5: Complete Related Documents

Other documents may offer additional legal protection. For example, those who use software license agreements often incorporate a sales contract, invoice, and consulting services agreement into their existing business practices.
