In the context of a pure licensing agreement, the licensee may, on its terms and under the common law, terminate the contract as it sees fit and without reason, unless it is linked to an interest or rendered irrevocable by contract. An interest-related licence cannot be revoked by the licensee without liability and potential damage. In the event that a licence is related to an interest, the licensee must give the licensee a reasonable period of time to withdraw that interest from the property prior to termination. Since a licence does not confer any interest on the licensee, the licence is terminated in the event of the sale of the property and cannot be imposed on the new owners of that property.

Click-Wrap Licensing Agreements cover the formation of website-based contracts (see iLan Systems, Inc. v. Netscout Service Level Corp.). A common example occurs when a user has to accept a website`s licensing terms by clicking “Yes” in a pop-up to access the website`s features. This is therefore an analogy with retractable wrap licenses, for which a buyer implicitly accepts licensing conditions by first removing the retractable film from the software and then using the software itself.
