The First of Three Videos on the Salesforce Master Subscription Agreement

With support from LegalSifter, I’ve recorded three short videos about the Salesforce master subscription agreement. Today we launch the first one, which introduces you to the MSA—what it covers, what it doesn’t cover.

My co-presenter is Nada Alnajafi, the impresario behind Contract Nerds. She’s a fresh voice in contracts, and I appreciate her enthusiasm. And she’s a natural on video, compared with leering, mugging goon that is yours truly.

In every form of speaking I do, I don’t feel comfortable unless it’s supported by something written. Given how intricate and consequential contract language is, the spoken word can slip from your mind so easily. So each of the three videos in this series features what I think is an interesting giveaway.

For part 2, coming soon, I’m joined by Alex Hamilton to discuss the drafting of the Salesforce MSA. And in part 3, Gabe Meister and I will discuss issues that might be of interest to Salesforce customers.

OK, enough of the buildup: go here for part 1.
