Typically, the software publishers poorly label the software, while the customers are not provided with accurate tools and guidance to proactively manage their software estate. Nor are customers given the clarity and transparency they need on the level of software licensing programs governing the use of the licensed software.
The ultimate goal of the proposal for a Software Publishers’ Code of Conduct is therefore for software publishers to provide legal certainty and unambiguous software licensing contracts with a clear definition of responsibilities for both software publishers and customers. The 21st century will be known as the digital era. Already today, we see exponential technology growth transforming every sector and industry. IT technology has become an important factor for economic progress and development. Complex, unbalanced and ambiguous software license contracts are a roadblock to unleashing the full potential from our society’s digitalization.
The Proposal for a Software Publishers’ Code of Conduct is available for all Beltug, INTUG and EuroCIO members, to use as a support during negotiations with software publishers.
