Intellectual Property Escrow Agreement

The ownership of the software is an imprecise characterization. It is possible to own copyright and other intellectual property rights in the software. It is also possible to have the tangible media in which the software is embodied. These two are very different and it is not certain that ownership of the software means any of these possibilities. This article uses software ownership as the property of the relevant intellectual property of the software. Museums, archives and other glam organizations have begun to act as independent trustees due to increasing digital obsolescence. Notable examples are the Internet Archive 2007[7][8] the Library of Congress 2006,[9][10] ICHEG,[11] Computer History Museum,[12][13] or moma. [14] In the event of the release of deposit materials, the recipient is generally not the only one to remain high and dry; there are usually other licensees. The trust agreement (for example. B in the authorized use license) should allow the recipient to partner with these other licensees and jointly hire an independent contractor with the expertise and experience to use the source code in accordance with the authorized operating license, and to do so for the benefit of all licensees.

This allows costs, resources and expertise to be shared. The independent contractor may even be a maintenance service that hires former licensee programmers who are familiar with the source code and its construction/development environment. The beneficiary should ensure that the licensee is broad enough to allow for all of this. However, this raises some interesting questions. Should deposit materials be limited to what the designated materials actually exist in their “way of seeing” state? Should the licensee be required to establish certain documents for the trust fund if it does not yet exist? Should the licensee be required to improve materials that exist but do not meet certain standards or criteria? If the answer to one of these questions is yes, who will pay for the extra work that needs to be done by the licensee? Changing functions or repairing programs can only be done with source code, which is why it is often used in large software transactions, especially for applications that have developed or custom-reviewed service applications. Like other types of trusts, the source code trust service is linked to a trusted third party – the trust agent who has the source code and the corresponding documentation. Whether a trust contract is entered into for the source code and which bears its costs is subject to the agreement between the licensee and the licensee. Software licensing agreements often provide for the licensee`s right to require the pawning of the source code or to adhere to an existing trust agreement. [4] Material filing documents and copies of them, made by the trust company under the trust agreement, should be the property of the trust company, but this property should not contain copyright or other intellectual property rights on or on the filing documents. As the owner of the deposit equipment (for example.

B CD-ROM containing source code), the fiduciary company is in a better position to release or retain the deposit material in accordance with its contractual obligations in the trust agreement. For example, in the case of the bankruptcy of the licensee and the refusal of the licensing and trust contracts by an agent as a performance contract, it should be clear that the material pledge documents are held by the fiduciary company, not by the licensee or its estate. When developing a trust agreement, release conditions (sometimes called trigger events) are as important as deposit materials. The appearance of a condition of release allows the recipient to receive the deposit documents.
