Drafting and Negotiating IT Contracts

Third Edition

By Rachel Burnett, Paul Klinger

Whether the reader is a legal adviser, Information Technology (IT) supplier, or IT purchaser, this fully updated third edition will ensure an edge in negotiations. Formerly titled Drafting and Negotiating Computer Contracts, the book covers a wide variety of IT contracts. Each chapter provides an outline of the structure and contents of the contract, followed by sample clauses, drafting notes, and checklists. Uniquely, it enables the development of a contract from scratch by focusing on key points and producing a skeleton draft before a fully worked draft. It has been fully updated since the previous edition to include: cloud computing; package contracts, where several products and services are sold, licensed, and supplied from a single source under an umbrella or master agreement; and UK privacy legislation. A CD-ROM of UK precedents is also included.
