For example, the Blender graphic suite was published this way after the bankruptcy of Not a Number Technologies; The widely used Qt toolkit is covered by a trust agreement for the source code guaranteed by the KDE Free Qt Foundation.  The acquisition mechanism is a common practice in mergers or acquisitions to ensure the subsequent completion of the transaction under conditions where the immediate completion of the transaction is not appropriate. This practice takes the form of a deposit of the parties` claims on an independent third party in order to ensure the execution of the debts resulting from the contracts that form the basis of the transaction in the context of mergers and acquisitions (transfer of sperm and/or shares). To this end, the parties to the merger and/or share transfer agreement grant a trust agreement related to the basic contract to ensure the performance of the debts arising from the contract. In this case, a contract (trust contract) is signed between the parties to the merger and/or share transfer agreement and a trusted third party (fiduciary agent) covering the circumstances in which the shares and transfer are returned to the parties during the implementation of the terms. Shares are often subject to a trust agreement as part of an IPO or when granted to employees as part of stock option plans. These shares are usually in trust because there is a minimum period of time that must pass before they can be freely traded by their owners. Fiduciary contracts are preferred as collateral mechanisms for mergers and share transfers, as well as for asset transfers and business transfers. In particular, the buyer may not be able to determine the accuracy of the seller`s statements and commitments regarding the entity or assets concerned during the negotiation of the contract. In this case, the buyer will want to pay the full amount after the completion of the declarations and obligations that are the subject of the basic contractual relationship. On the other hand, it is clear that the seller wants to transfer the company or assets submitted to the circuit after the payment of the entire Seman. In this case, Treuhand, a mechanism that guarantees risks to both parties, is also a means of guaranteeing such declarations and obligations. Trust agreements must fully encircle the terms and conditions between all parties involved.
The implementation of a contract ensures that all the obligations of the parties involved are fulfilled and that the transaction is carried out in a safe and reliable manner. The fiduciary agreements described above are the most appropriate for custom software that is not accessible to the general public. In some cases, the source code for standard commercial software may be filed as a fiduciary to be published as open source and open source software under an open source license, when the original developer stops development and/or if certain fundraising conditions are met (the threshold deposit system). It is possible to spend some time during a commercial transaction if one party has the best interest of progressing only if it knows with absolute certainty that the other party is able to meet its obligations. That is where the use of a trust agreement comes in.
