Beta-Test Agreement Law and Legal Definition

In terms of Intellectual Property law, beta-test agreement is a software license agreement between a software developer and a customer. The agreement allows the customer to use the software program in a “live” environment before its release to the general public. Beta-test agreements differ from more conventional software licenses. They typically have more significant limitations on liability; contain few warranties, if any; and require user evaluation and feedback. This is also known as software beta-test agreement.
