Description

Several members of ADAPSO who were involved with the Contracts Reference Directory met to discuss how the contracts directory project started and why it was important to produce the directory. They also talked about how they had to avoid the implication of collusion or anti-trust behavior in defining standard contracts. They spoke about how the Directory was used by the member companies and what was done when customers violated a contract. They identified the specific articles included in both the Program License Agreement and the Professional Services agreement and mentioned many of the other contracts that were produced. They ended by talking about the changes caused by the move to PC software and how the Directory was used to educate customers, lawyers and business people.
