About the Book

Software Law and Its Application covers the statutes, cases, and regulations which provide legal protection for computer software with a practice-focused approach. 

Practice-focused, Gomulkiewicz covers real-world timely issues
  • Chapters begin with an overview to provide context and cover common scenarios, allowing students to learn by applying relevant texts as they would in law practice
  • Discussion questions and in-class exercises provide opportunities for students to "practice law” in the classroom setting as business and litigation lawyers
  • Lightly edited cases give students a case reading experience closely approximating law practice and instructors lots of material to draw on
  • Beyond cases, students work with licenses, NDAs, and other documents commonly used in the software industry
