Apple IOS Developer courses and licensing
As a state college in Connecticut we are restricted from contracting with vendors where the contract language stipulates that the agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of any other state.
Most vendors are willing to modify the language readily. However we have hit a wall with Apple regarding IOS developer software and purchasing of other apps. The IOS developer download requires:
1) That we verify a legal authority to bind the institution to the iOS Developer Program University License Agreement.
2) And that the agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict of law provisions. The parties further submit to and waive any objections to personal jurisdiction of and venue in any of the following forums: U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, California Superior Court for Santa Clara County, Santa Clara County Municipal Court, or any other forum in Santa Clara County, for any disputes arising out of this Agreement.
So far I have been unable to get Apple to provide a workaround for this. Still working on getting the stateâ€™s AG office to provide some solution but that promises to be a very protracted process. We have demand to teach the IOS developer classes and are looking for any solutions you may have out there. Thanks for any ideas.
