Legal Question in Technology Law in Massachusetts

We have a software we offer as a service hosted on our hardware.

An enterprise client is asking for a license to install a copy of our software locally on their hardware.

The software is written in Python and since it is a just in time compiled language this license would in effect grant the client access to our source code.

Are such types of licenses common for just in time compiled languages?

What are the protective measures one could take in my position?

First you need to review your license to determine if you can even license the software to a third party, which I doubt is provided.

Second, you will probably need the consent of Python and you would want to limit use of the program to the client's use only and have a way of being able to determine who is allowed to use it.

You really need to speak to an attorney for assistance with this as this forum is not appropriate to give the full answers and analysis you need.

Please feel free to contact me if you have more questions.

Good Luck
