Creating an innovative software licensing solution for SpectX

We advised SpectX in creating the general licensing terms for their software and a technological solution that enables the client to enter special terms of the license into a cryptographically secured key file. The innovativeness of the solution lies in the fact that a single key file can contain both machine-readable special terms (e.g. the term of the license) and human-readable ones (e.g. a clause, according to which the software may only be used for teaching or scientific research purposes). An agreement made in this way makes it easier to ensure the lawfulness of software usage.

SpectX is a technology company that develops software for in-place analytics of log files and other unstructured data without having to spend time on import or preparation of the data.
