By installing, copying, or otherwise using the SOFTWARE PRODUCT, you agree to be bound by the terms of this EULA. If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not install, use, distribute in any manner, or replicate in any manner, any part, file or portion of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT.

The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed, not sold.

The Licensee is considered to be an authorized licensee (“Authorized”) if the Licensee has legitimately obtained a registered license for the SOFTWARE PRODUCT from Editor or an authorized Editor reseller.

RIGOROUS ENFORCEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. If the licensed right of use for this SOFTWARE PRODUCT is purchased by the Licensee with any intent to reverse engineer, decompile, create derivative works, and the exploitation or unauthorized transfer of, any Editor intellectual property and trade secrets, to include any exposed methods or source code where provided, no licensed right of use shall exist, and any products created as a result shall be judged illegal by definition of all applicable law. Any sale or resale of intellectual property or created derivatives so obtained will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of all local, federal and international law.

GRANT OF LICENSE. This EULA, if legally executed as defined herein, licenses and so grants the Licensee the following rights:

Development. Editor grants the Licensee the non-exclusive license to install and use multiple copies of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT or any prior version for the sole purpose of developing any number of end user applications that operate in conjunction with the SOFTWARE PRODUCT.

A Developer License for the SOFTWARE PRODUCT may not be shared or used concurrently by more than one individual developer. In a project that uses the SOFTWARE PRODUCT, each individual developer on the project requires a separate Developer License, regardless of whether they directly use the component or not.

Duplication and Distribution. The SOFTWARE PRODUCT may include certain files ("Redistributables") intended for distribution by the Licensee to the users of programs the Licensee creates. Redistributables include, for example, those files identified in printed or electronic documentation as redistributable files, or those files pre-selected for deployment by an install utility provided with the SOFTWARE PRODUCT (if any). In any event, the Redistributables for the SOFTWARE PRODUCT are only those files specifically designated as such by Editor.

Subject to all of the terms and conditions in this EULA, Editor grants the Licensee the non-exclusive, royalty-free license to duplicate the Redistributables and to distribute them solely in conjunction with software products developed by the Licensee that use them. The Licensee may not supply any means by which end users could incorporate the SOFTWARE PRODUCT or portions thereof into their own products.

Source Code. If the Licensee has purchased a Source Code License and is Authorized, the Licensee is provided Source Code for the SOFTWARE PRODUCT. The following stipulations and restrictions apply to Source Code:

  1. Editor grants the Licensee the non-exclusive license to view and modify the Source Code for the sole purposes of education and troubleshooting. If the Licensee troubleshoots the Source Code, the Licensee may compile the corrected source code and use and distribute the resulting object code solely as a replacement for the corresponding Redistributables the Source Code compiles into.
  2. The Licensee may NOT distribute or sell the Source Code, or portions or modifications or derivative works thereof, to any third party, without explicit permission by Editor, except with developers working in the same company and at the same physical location as the Licensee. They implicitly agree to follow the same license agreement.
  3. The Licensee may not compete against Editor by repackaging, recompiling, or renaming the SOFTWARE PRODUCT for which the Licensee purchased Source Code. Any derivative works based on the Source Code are illegal to be created or sold if they compete in any way with the SOFTWARE PRODUCT or other Editor products.
  4. Any redistributed object code that is created by using the Source Code or derivative code based on the Source Code must be obfuscated.
  5. Any object code that is created by using the Source Code or derivative code based on the Source Code may NOT bear "Nicolas LIPS" or the name of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT in the object code assembly name.
  6. All Source Code must be kept in its proper namespace.
  7. Editor shall retain all rights, title and interest in and to all corrections, modifications and derivative works of the Source Code created by the Licensee, including all copyrights subsisting therein, to the extent such corrections, modifications or derivative works contain copyrightable code or expression derived from the Source Code.
  8. The Licensee acknowledges that the Source Code contains valuable and proprietary trade secrets of Editor, and agrees to expend every effort to insure its confidentiality.
  9. Source Code may be obtained by coordinating with Editor during one year, starting on the date of purchase of the Source Code License.
