1. GRANT OF DEVELOPMENT LICENSE
Nicomsoft grants Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license for one (1) programmer to install the Software on a single personal computer and use the Software in the development of one or more end user applications as contemplated in section 2 below (herein, the “Application Software”). If additional programming seats are needed, Licensee should contact Nicomsoft for discounted license pricing. The license granted hereunder applies only to the designated version of the enclosed Software. If the Software is an upgrade or cross grade, it, and the product that was upgraded/cross graded constitute a single copy of the Software for purposes hereof and the new version and product that was upgraded/cross graded cannot be used by two people at the same time.
2. SINGLE END USER APPLICATION
The Application Software developed by Licensee must be an “end user application.” An “end user application” is a specific application program that is licensed to a person or firm for business or personal use and not with a view toward redistributing the application or any part of the application, and may be either an application that is used by Licensee internally, or an application that is commercially distributed to end users for their use. The license rights hereunder do not apply to development and deployment of software products or services such as development toolkits, software with an application programming interface (API), dynamic link libraries (DLLs), ActiveX controls, compilers, operating systems or any other software not falling within the above definition of an end user application.
3. GRANT OF DUPLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION LICENSE
The Software includes certain runtime libraries and files intended for duplication and distribution by Licensee within the Application Software to the user of Application Software (“Redistributables”). Licensee should refer to the Documentation for additional information regarding the Redistributables. Under Nicomsoft’s intellectual property rights, and subject to all the restrictions and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Documentation, Nicomsoft hereby grants Licensee (and only Licensee) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to reproduce (and have reproduced) exact copies of the Redistributables and include such files in the Application Software, and to deploy the Application Software to end users. If Licensee wishes to use an OEM who will modify the Application Software and copy it, Licensee must first obtain an OEM distribution license from Nicomsoft or must require the OEM to obtain a license from Nicomsoft. Duplication or Redistribution of the Application Software, or any portion thereof, by the users of the Application Software, without a separate written redistribution license from Nicomsoft, is prohibited. If the enclosed Software has certain modules or components that are marked as “for evaluation”, no right to copy and/or distribute such modules or components is granted. No rights to copy or redistribute the Application Software are granted until such time as Licensee has properly registered the Software with Nicomsoft and has otherwise complied with this Agreement.
