For authorised parties

The licensee not only makes considerable investments with the purchase of the new software, but often also procures the associated hardware. In addition, a licensee often has to recruit new employees and train and educate all users of the software at the same time. Consequently, a licensee becomes highly dependent on the software manufacturer when choosing a software. And despite this dependency, a licensee usually still does not get access to the source code of the software without explicit request.

In cases of non-fulfilment of maintenance obligations, business closure, business takeover/M&A or bankruptcy of the software manufacturer, the licensee faces an uncertain future. In such cases, only the access to the source code and to the documentation and programming documents is the key to the continued productive usability of the software.
