Understanding Software Escrows
Why a Software Escrow
A software escrow protects a software licensee (user of the software) by ensuring that the licensee will have access to the source code in the event that the licensor (developer of the software):
- Goes out of business (e.g., via bankruptcy)
- Discontinues support of the licensed software
- Breaches maintenance obligations
- Or some other release condition occurs
