    correct?

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether it is correct to say:

    Contract on supply and use of software products

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: correct?

    - barely. I'd expect either 'for' or 'relating to/covering'.

    Re: correct?

    Usually a contract exists for something, to do something or governs/regulates something:

    Contract for the suppy and use of software
    Contract governing the supply and use of software.

    The two above are suitable for the title.

    Contract to supply software
    Contract to use software

    These are suitable in any discussion of the contract.

    The phrase "contract to supply and use software" sounds weird, probably because different sides supply and use.
