Subject Re: Question on acceptable language for SGA Exhibit A text
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2015 06:02:47 GMT
To make sure I understand the question:

Is the issue that the software the grant will cover includes 3rd party
software, so you're looking for text that says the grant only covers that
which HP is able to grant a license on?
