Failure to abide by Microsoft’s SPLA requirements can be extremely costly.

Robert J. Scott, Managing Partner, and Christopher Barnett, Associate Attorney, of Scott & Scott, LLP, present a free CLE webinar covering Microsoft’s specific licensing requirements in its Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) for making its products available to end users through commercial hosting services. Failure to abide by those requirements can be extremely costly.

“Before committing to Microsoft's Services Provider License Agreement, companies must determine whether the SPLA model is right for them. That analysis depends on understanding the alternatives to SPLA, the obligations that a company accepts by signing a SPLA, and the risks associated with those obligations. In the SPLA or Not to SPLA Webinar, Christopher and I will provide an overview of that decision-making process”, said Robert Scott.

Attendees will learn:

  • Who needs SPLA?
  • What is "commercial hosting"?
  • Licensing alternatives for commercial hosting rights
  • Defending SPLA audits
  • Estimating SPLA-audit exposure
  • Negotiating SPLA-audit settlements

Presenters: Robert J. Scott, Managing Partner, Scott & Scott, LLP, represents large corporate clients in high-stakes software licensing transactions and disputes. He has defended many SPLA audit matters.

Christopher Barnett, Associate Attorney, Scott & Scott, LLP, represents clients in a variety of business, intellectual property and IT-related contexts, with substantial attention to companies negotiating enterprise-level software license agreements and audit settlements.

When: Wednesday, March 27, 11:00 a.m. - noon CDT
