The importance of legal aspects in software asset management and licensing is growing. Business practices and the license portfolio are often not in accordance with each other. Furthermore, complex clauses in licensing agreements may be misunderstood by the customer and lead to profound controversies with the software company, e.g. in the course of an inhouse software audit.
