Companies that license customers to use proprietary software should consider a CLA. These include saaS developers, software developers and mobile app developers. For example, if you download software from the Internet, the CLA is provided electronically. The end-user license agreement (EULA) is often used by software application developers as a legal contract between the company for the development of the software application and the users of that application. It can be a mobile app or a desktop app, regardless of the platform on which it is developed: Windows, Mac, iOS, Android. An effective and comprehensive CLA will ensure that anyone using your desktop or mobile app is aware that the user`s rights go until you keep control of the software and who uses it. Be aware of the laws of your country governing your agreement. This is called the definition of jurisdiction. In general, you choose the laws of the country where you have your main place of business, but not always.
An end-user license agreement is often used when an individual or company wants to create proprietary software and earn money by allowing others to use the program in a limited way.
