On September 12th, I will be sending out notice to the world announcing the availability of the second edition of the Software Licensing Handbook. You might have noticed the book picture on the right has changed a bit… yep, you can buy it today (I’ll be available via Amazon and other resellers in about a month)!
This has been an incredible ride – the first edition has been wildly successful … I’m simply blown away by the support of this community of contracts professionals, lawyers, negotiators and supply chain professionals! So I’ve got all sorts of things planned to make the Second Edition even more valuable to you… and I wanted to let you know about them now:
First, I’ve added more than 100 pages of new material. I’ve also corrected all of the errors I found (and those that many of you were kind enough to point out to me).
Second, purchasers of the Second Edition will receive a free Symetrisk deal risk review upon its release (maybe before the end of this year, but I can’t promise anything quite yet… it’s still a work in progress).
Third, as holders of the First Edition have already seen, there are going to be a few special offers for owners of the book(s) not available to anyone else. Starting today, owners of the Second Edition can get a free copy of the Software License Risk Matrix coded to the Second Edition for those times when a book is a bit obvious in a negotiation. Additionally, the Software Licensing Education Series is about 50% complete – it’s audio/video training (designed for professionals on the go or for those who don’t have time to read the book)… but book owners will get a discount on the videos.
