Joann Meyer is negotiating the contract with PSoft and had a couple of questions. Can I get your input on them?

500 and above [REDACTED TEXT]

Derivative Works

Derivative works are those things that we develop internally (ie customization / bolt-on's) using the Tools provided by PeopleSoft because we require that feature/function and it is not part of the delivered product and/or the product does not meet our requirement. In the old contract if we got a copyright patent on that code we had the right to sue PeopleSoft if they then incorporated that functionality into their standard product. PeopleSoft wants us to remove that language so the real question is [REDACTED TEXT]

Let me know what your thought are on this.
