Software companies generally to not transfer ownership of their software to their customers. If they did, then the licensor would no longer have rights to the software, which would quickly put them out of business.

Instead, software companies “license” their software. This means that company licensing the software, the “licensor” maintains ownership rights but the company using the software, the “licensee” gets certain rights. These rights can be as broad or as limited as the parties agree. There are several types of licenses which are common and which are covered in this program.
