LES Israel is pleased to host LES member Neil Wilkof, who will speak on the topic:
”The Legal Treatment of Reusable Software: Israel and the EU”.
According to LES and Neil, trading in software licenses is a frequent occurrence, but the legal position is uncertain. The talk will consider the approach taken in Israel and the EU.
The event will take place at Beit Hapraklit, 10 Daniel Frisch St., Tel Aviv on Tuesday 8 January, 2013 at 8:30 am.
The event is free to LES members (FY 2012/2013) but non-members will be 50 NIS charge. To confirm participation please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
