: I am the end user (owner) of a Blow-off Protection System (a complex machine) built by an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) This contractor sub-contracted the control system to another company. The controls include a PLC (programmable logic controller - computer), who owns the software copyright?
: The OEM sells this BOP to other end users.
: My interest is future changes I might want to make to the PLC code. PLC's have the code accessable.
Dear Mr. Kelly,
It all depends upon the agreements between the parties.
