Intellectual Property Indemnity Clauses
ExpressO (2011)
  • Thomas MS Hemnes

In this article, Mr. Hemnes examines the history of intellectual property warranty and indemnity contractual provisions. He then describes events that have destabilized provisions that had become standardized, particularly in the computer software field, and critiques the positions currently taken by both vendors and customers. He concludes with proposals for a better allocation of risk between technology providers and consumers.
