License

The key points in the license are(*):

  • Licenses are per developer. One developer may utilize a single license on more than one machine as long as it is not shared by other developers. This means, for instance, a single license may be used on an office machine, a home machine, and a laptop.
  • Server-side elements are licensed deployment free. You pay to use the design time version. You do not pay per-server deployment fees when you deploy your application with the deployment version.
  • The source code can't be used to create a product that provides similar functionality.
  • Distribution of elements for use in design time is not covered under this license. If you wish to distribute our elements as part of a design environment, that requires a special OEM license and does involve the payment of royalties.

(*) These are recaps of key points in our license agreements. For exact license terms and conditions please read the full License Agreements below.

SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT:

VERY IMPORTANT - READ CAREFULLY:

This Software License Agreement (hereinafter, this "LICENSE") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single entity) and Manuel Abadia ("ManuelAbadia.com"), for the software package containing this LICENSE (binaries, source code, documentation, diagrams, etc).

IF YOU BUY A PRODUCT FROM THIS SITE YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS, LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY AND TERMINATION PROVISIONS.

If you do not agree to the terms of this LICENSE do NOT buy the software.

I. OWNERSHIP; LICENSE GRANT.

This is a license agreement and NOT an agreement for sale. ManuelAbadia.com continues to own the copy of the SOFTWARE package. Your rights to the SOFTWARE are specified in this LICENSE, and ManuelAbadia.com retains all rights not expressly granted to you in this LICENSE. ManuelAbadia.com hereby grants to you, and you accept, a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use, copy and modify the SOFTWARE only as authorized below.

II. PERMITTED USES.

This LICENSE grants you the following rights:

A. The SOFTWARE is licensed to be used by 1 (one) developer. You may make copies on more than one computer, as long as the use of the SOFTWARE is used by the same developer. The SOFTWARE is in "use" on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk, CD-ROM, or other storage devise) of that computer. However, installation on a network server for the sole purpose of internal distribution to one or more other computer(s) shall not constitute "use" for which a separate license is required, provided you have the required licenses for the destination computers.

B. Solely with respect to electronic documents included with the SOFTWARE, you may make a copy (either in hardcopy or electronic form) for each developer for which the Software has been licensed as described in Section II.A, above; provided, that such copies shall be used only by such developer for internal purposes and are not to be republished or distributed to any other third party or developer.

C. You may use the evaluation versions for the limited purposes of demonstrations and trials, for a maximum period of 30 days.

III. PROHIBITED USES.

You may not, without the prior written permission of ManuelAbadia.com:

A. Disassemble, decompile or "unlock", decode or otherwise reverse translate or engineer, or attempt in any manner to reconstruct or discover any source code or underlying algorithms of SOFTWARE provided in object code form only. The only exception to this rule is the fair use of copyright law.

B. Use, copy, modify, or merge copies of the SOFTWARE and any accompanying documents except as permitted in this LICENSE.

C. Transfer, rent, lease, or sublicense the SOFTWARE.

IV. SOURCE CODE.

Provided you have purchased the source code, you may make modifications, enhancements, derivative works and/or extensions to that licensed source code provided to you under the terms of this license.

You may not distribute the source code, or any modification, enhancement, derivative work and/or extension thereto, in source code form.

The source code contained herein and in related files is provided to the licensed developer for the sole purposes of education and troubleshooting. Under no circumstances may any portion of the source code be distributed, disclosed or otherwise made available to any third party without the express, prior written consent of ManuelAbadia.com.

Under no circumstances may the source code be used in whole or in part, as the basis for creating a product that provides the same, or substantially the same, functionality as the original product (for example: you cannot use the ExtendedObjectDataSource as a base for your commercial data source control; you cannot use the diagramming engine of the StructsViz package as a base for your full fledged diagramming product). You will not take any action, or assist or otherwise aid anyone else in taking any action, that would limit ManuelAbadia.com's independent development, sale, assignment, licensing or use of its own software or any modification, enhancement, derivative work and/or extension thereto.

You will not modify or delete, in whole or part, any copyright, trade secret, proprietary, confidential or other notice thereon or therein without the express, prior written consent of ManuelAbadia.com.

V. REDISTRIBUTABLE elements.

A. In addition to the license and rights granted in Sections I and II, ManuelAbadia.com grants you a nonexclusive, royalty-free right to deploy the redistributable object code version of the SOFTWARE (REDISTRIBUTABLES), provided

  • you distribute only the deployment version of the object code with no design time support.
  • you do not distribute the license key obtained.
  • it is NOT the basis for creating a product that provides the same, or substantially the same, functionality as any ManuelAbadia.com product.
  • if you create a control (or user control) using the SOFTWARE as a constituent control, you are not licensed to distribute the control you created with the SOFTWARE to users for development purposes. 

B. In addition to the other requirements in this Section V, you hereby agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend ManuelAbadia.com from and against any and all liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising from or related to any claim, action, proceeding or allegation that arises or results, either directly or indirectly, from the use and distribution of any of your software application product(s) or components.
