About this course

In this webinar, we address key liability terms in information technology contracts. These are some of the most negotiated terms in contracts about software, the cloud, and artificial intelligence. They’re also often misunderstood, particularly terms about indemnities. This program will cover both the most common liability terms and those contract drafters tend to understand least. The latter include new issues related to generative artificial intelligence.

Topics covered include:

  • Warranties
  • Limits of liability
  • Indemnities
  • Vendor liability for 3rd parties
  • Liquidated damages
  • Concerns about machine learning
  • And more

As usual, your instructor is David Tollen, author of The Tech Contracts Handbook, attorney, UC Berkeley lecturer, expert witness, and sought-after speaker.

Length: c. 1 hr. 40 mins. (CA CLE 1.5 hrs.)

CLE: Tech Contracts Academy On-Demand webinars are approved for Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) credit in California, and we provide CA CLE certificates (self-study). Jurisdictions elsewhere (and professions) differ on whether students may apply individually, and if so what’s required. See here for details about CLE.

Note: Much of Chapters 2 and 3, on indemnities, is also covered in our separate program, The Indeminar: Indemnities in IT Contracts. (We consider occasional overlaps valuable, reinforcing key lessons for students who take both courses.)
