COVENANTS NOT TO SUE, EXCLUSIVE LICENSES, AND IMPLIED LICENSES
It is mid-April, another sleepy Sunday in San Mateo County. Blue skies (finally) seem within grasp, but, as I start writing this article, the passive-aggressive marine layer, seemingly cognizant of the sentiments of the day, simply refuses to burn off. We are starting week 5 of shelter-in-place, and as much as I enjoy my neighborhood, and the rolling hills with views of San Francisco Bay, there are only so many materially different walking routes I can devise. To the contrary, my dog does not seem to mind the more frequent walks, although I am quite sure that she would prefer to be off-leash, running around Fort Point, a wind-swept recreational area overlooking the Pacific on San Francisco’s southern edge, and directly interacting with others.
