Butzel attorneys discuss Breaking the Code: Software Special Terms and Conditions during OESA virtual program on March 11


DETROIT, Mich. – Special Terms and Conditions (Ts and Cs) for software and related items are becoming more commonplace for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers. Several OEMs have already added software-specific language to their general Ts and Cs. Notably, how suppliers should approach software issues differs greatly from how they approach goods and services in a contract.

Butzel attorneys Jennifer Dukarski and Mitchell Zajac will discuss these matters and more during the 2022 Original Equipment Suppliers Association’s (OESA) “Breaking the Code: Software Ts and Cs,” virtual program from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on Friday, March 11, 2022. The program is designed for supplier professionals in sales, purchasing, engineering and legal functional roles. Registration fees vary for OESA members and non-members. To register online, visit www.oesa.org/events.

Program participants will gain added insight on the five major OEM Software Ts and Cs issues including:

  • The Reality of Software Warranties;
  •  Ownership under Software Ts and Cs;
  • Regulatory Risk and Guidance;
  • The Risk of Open-Source Strategies; and,
  • Software Specifications and What Is a Defect?

An interactive Q&A session with Dukarski and Zajac will follow the presentation facilitated by Ginger Juncker, Vice President, Programming, OESA.
