Software Agreement: Can You Be Sued For Using An Old Software Version?

software agreement licenseUsers of Adobe’s Creative Cloud were apparently told this spring that they couldn’t use older versions of the software. To do so, would violate the end user license agreements they agreed to when purchasing a license to use this software-as-a-service (SaaS).

If Adobe is correct, that leaves the users with two options:

(1) stop using the older version of Creative Cloud; or

(2) upgrading to a new SaaS version.

Of course, when one upgrades software to a newer version, there may be an upgrade fee for the new license.

When you sell or buy a software application license, it’s important to understand what’s being sold (and what’s excluded) from the transaction. Be sure to read the fine print of the application’s license agreement.

If it’s your app that’s being developed or sold, a good software attorney can prepare a software agreement that’s right for you. If you need help, schedule a phone consultation with Software Lawyer Mike Young.
