    The IP Law Blog digests an interesting software licensing case. An independent contractor software developer worked for a number of years writing applications for his client. When the relationship ended the copyright (and trade secret) lawsuit ensued. The Ninth Circuit found that the client had not just a license to use the software, but an unlimited, non-exclusive, irrevocable license to retain, use and even modify the software.
