Examples of End User computers are desktop computers and laptops that run Windows 98, Windows NT Workstation, Windows 2000 Workstation or Windows XP operating systems.
Development License Restrictions - These restrictions apply to a licensee who develops Application Software that utilizes SOFTWARE PRODUCT in a commercially distributed application.
(i) Server License: It can be easily called from VC/VB/Delphi/ASP/PHP/.NET and other languages/scripts. With Server license, LICENSEE can integrate VeryPDF's product into their web solution easily. Server License is licensed per server, LICENSEE will need to purchase a license for each server that they wish to run Server License on.
A SERVER LICENSE allows deploying the LICENSED SOFTWARE to one (1) SERVER or a server cluster at one physical location. The CONCURRENT USER LIMIT (the maximum number of users that may access the LICENSED SOFTWARE concurrently) is identified in the license fee bill or a separate document.
Licensee is granted the non-transferable, non-exclusive, and perpetual right to use the program on a fixed number of production servers. A production server is a single computer run by licensee (e.g., a Web server). For the server license the total number of machines is taken into account, while the number of users accessing the server is irrelevant. The total number of CPU's is also irrelevant (e.g., two dual-processor machines plus a single-processor machine results in a total machine count of three). A purchased server license may be transferred to another server if no two servers are driven concurrently under the same license agreement.
Developer License (Royalty Free Runtime Desktop Distribution): "Desktop" is defined as an "end-user" personal computer (PC) that may have Applications installed that directly, or indirectly, utilize the Software. A single Developer License provides for unlimited distribution of Applications utilizing the Software onto Desktop environments.
A Developer License is required when the LICENSED SOFTWARE is incorporated into a software product that is used outside of LICENSEE’S company, e.g. when the software product is sold or distributed to customers of LICENSEE. With developer license, LICENSEE can integrate VeryPDF's product with their application and distribute it with their own application to "end-users" royalty free. In this instance LICENSEE can include the LICENSED SOFTWARE within the installer used for their own application and this right takes precedence over the installer restrictions stated in 2.1 III and Section 4 - General Limitations.
Licensee is granted the non-transferable, non-exclusive, and perpetual right to use the program in products developed, marketed, and distributed by licensee, and distribute the program to third parties as an integral part of such products. Licensee agrees that he will distribute the program to third parties only integrated or in conjunction with hardware or software products that make use of the program ("authorized products"). Such authorized products must add substantial functionality to the program, authorized products are Desktop applications, but not programming interface for Developers. Products which in essence mimic the program's programming interface (or a subset thereof) are not permitted under any license.
Developer License is licensed by per developer, “Developer” is defined as an individual engaged in the development of a software application (the “Application”). Use of the Software requires one license per developer. Licenses are non-transferable between developers. For example, if a company has two developers that will use the Software, said company requires two developer licenses. This is the case even if the developers will not be working with the Software at the same time. This is also the case if a project involving the use of the Software is transferred from the original developer to a new developer and if the original developer returns within a one-year period.
(ii). No Application Programming Interfaces. This Agreement does not allow for exposing of the application programming interface (API) functionality to non-licensed users. LICENSEE may not create a dynamic link library (DLL), Command Line application, COM interface or ActiveX component (OCX) that exposes or wraps functionality of the SDK to a non-licensed developer. Violation of this stipulation is subject to the interpretation of VeryPDF and no other party. VeryPDF reserves the right to seek punitive damages including, but not limited to, lost income from sales. Contact the Sales Department for information on an OEM license allowing the API to be exposed to other developers.
(iii) SOFTWARE PRODUCT is not the sole or primary component of such Application Software;
(iv) You must give proper acknowledgment of the copyright of VeryPDF Software Inc;
(v) Must not be used to create a software application that competes with or is intended to compete with, directly or indirectly, the SOFTWARE PRODUCT;
(vi) The Application Software must add significant value to the SOFTWARE PRODUCT
All other uses that fall outside the scope of the License Agreement must receive the written permission of VeryPDF Software Inc.
