Depending on the situation, the Software License Agreement may have to meet other conditions, such as.B: Service Level Agreement (“SLA”), modifications to the Software by licensee, software reseller, data ownership, software trust, etc. The term of a software license agreement describes the period during which the license is granted to the licensee.
