Train With Us: Live Webinars March 12, April 16, May 21

Tech Contracts Academy offers three live webinars this spring – one each in March, April, and May:

Each includes live Q&A with our presenter, David Tollen, a copy of the slides, certificates (including CA CLE), and recording access (upon request, for a set 2 week period following live program). 

Our trainings, both live and on-demand, cover a wide variety of topics to build – and keep current – your tech contracting skills. There’s something for everyone within your organization involved in the contract negotiations process – attorneys and businesspeople.

Top 7 Worries for Customers in Contracts about Software, AI, and Other IT (March 12)

Our trainings generally strive to discuss both contracting parties’ points of view. But once in a while, we look particularly at the needs of one side. In this webinar, we’ll address the key concerns for customers in contracts about artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and other forms of software. But this program isn’t just for customers and those representing them. It is valuable also for vendors – and those representing them – to better understand your customers’ contract terms and negotiating positions.

Topics covered include:

  • Negotiating SLA terms and specifications
  • The limit of liability and its many exceptions
  • Indemnification — what matters and what doesn’t
  • Privacy terms and the separate question of privacy compliance
  • And more …

The Indeminar (April 16)

April sees the return of our ever-popular webinar, The Indeminar.

Topics covered include:
• The difference between “first party” and “third party” indemnities
• Important vocabulary, like “hold harmless,” and “mutual” indemnities
• Intellectual property (IP) indemnities, including troubling issues related to IP in artificial intelligence contracts
• Data incident indemnities
• Advanced indemnities: The “Cause Problem” – little-known, thorny issues involving losses the indemnitor caused
• Interplay with limit of liability

IP Terms in Contracts (May 21)

Our May webinar will help you understand and negotiate contract terms on intellectual property. Those terms play a central role in licenses to on-premise software – and a much-misunderstood role in contracts about SaaS and other forms of cloud computing. We will debunk the myths and explore both old and new issues, including new issues related to generative and other artificial intelligence deals.
