About this template
This legal template is designed specifically for a Software Value-Added Reseller (VAR) Contract, emphasizing a Licensor-friendly approach while maintaining simplicity. A Software VAR Contract is a legally binding agreement between a software licensor (the party owning the software) and a value-added reseller (VAR) who is authorized to market, distribute, and support the software to end-users/customers.

This template aims to protect the interests of the software licensor by incorporating clauses that favor their rights while ensuring a straightforward and easy-to-understand format. It may cover various crucial aspects such as the terms and conditions for the reseller's use and distribution of the software, licensing fees, intellectual property rights, scope of services provided by the reseller, limitations of liability, confidentiality and non-disclosure requirements, termination conditions, dispute resolution mechanisms, and any other relevant terms necessary for the smooth operation of the partnership between the licensor and the reseller.

By providing a licensor-friendly approach, this template may grant the software licensor greater control over their product, ease of enforcement of licenses and restrictions, and protection of their proprietary rights. While emphasizing simplicity, it strives to offer a clear and concise language, helping to ensure that both parties understand and agree upon the terms outlined in the contract.

Notably, this template should be customized and reviewed by legal professionals familiar with software VAR agreements and the specific circumstances of the licensor and reseller. It is essential to adapt it to the unique requirements and priorities of each party involved to ensure a fair and mutually beneficial contractual relationship between the licensor and the reseller.
