 “Shrink-wrap” Software License
This Contract is used to license high-volume, low cost off-the-shelf software which is now the most common mode of mass-market distribution of software, where it is neither economically practical nor physically possible to obtain the signature of the end-user to a conventional license in order to create a valid contract. In such circumstances ‘constructive acceptance’ of the License terms is necessary.

A software program consists of computer programming code (source and object code), together with the written documentation, e.g. software listings, schematics, etc. In order properly to transfer all rights to that asset to a purchaser, the developer must assign all of his original rights (his intellectual property rights) to the purchaser. This Assignment secures the transfer of those rights.
