Intellectual Property - Agreements - Licenses #191
A dive into the legal matters and processes of software industry.
Because agreements never are as easy as https://m.signalvnoise.com/my-kind-of-contract-e7327e98e3ea
Personal IP pain point: My clients want us - as it's written in the agreements they provide - to transfer the intellectual property of the software we build to them even though a large part of it is under MIT license and another part is trivial and common among all our projects (e.g. a method to send and email).
Personal NDA pain point: A client says "We want to discuss our idea with you and you give us your estimates on the project, the technical challenges it might have and some of your ideas/consulting. We'll pay you nothing for this task but you have to sign an NDA which says you will never work on a similar project ever again in your life."
