OUR COMMENTS
Neil is a good speaker who blogs as one of the IPKATs. The topic looks interesting. Although people sign all sorts of software licenses, they very rarely read the small print and understand what the license entitles and doesn’t, which may arguably affect the enforceability of the contract. Maybe purchasers of software are just that, and not licensees? Probably well worth attending this event.
