| Terms For Distributing Update
Subscription Technology to Your Customers
10 September, 2002
The update subscription for the Standard Developer's Edition will
give you a year's worth of technology updates. This usually amounts
to 4 quarterly updates a year (but that number is not guarantee).
The subscription runs twelve months from the later of the anniversary
of your product purchase date, or from 30 September 2001. So if
you bought before 30 September 2001, your subscription would run
until 30 September, 2002. All of the technology received during
the same one-year subscription period is considered one "new
version" for distribution purposes.
To simplify this discussion, let's agree to use the term "updated
technology" to describe any and all technology installments
received in any of the technology installments during a single subscription
Please note that the updated technology can be used with only one
copy of Standard Developer's Edition (v6.x or later), and is governed
by the same terms as the License Agreement for that Standard Developer's
Edition product. Each Developer who works with a Developer's Edition
License must obtain their own fully paid-up Standard Developer's
Edition License, and update subscription to work with the Foxfire!
VAR's and OEM's
If you have a VAR or OEM agreement in force, please note that you
must make monthly reports and royalty payments to receive and maintain
the rights to distribute any updated technology with your commercial
When distributing to a NEW CUSTOMER, you must pay a full distribution
fee (in the case of an OEM) or surrender a full pre-paid distribution
credit (in the case of a VAR) for each copy that you distribute
with a technology update.
When distributing updated technology to EXISTING CUSTOMERS, you
must also pay or surrender a full distribution credit for each such
distribution. If you are a VAR, in keeping with the "Foxfire!-is-not-
optional" nature of the VAR agreement, you cannot selectively
update some customers and not others to keep royalties down. All
your active customers must be updated at once, and royalties paid
and reported at that time.
Question: If I get two installments during my one-year subscription
period that I want to give to my customers, I must pay two distributions
for each customer?
Answer: No. All of the updated technology you receive during the
one-year subscription period is considered one "new version",
so you can update your customer one time per installment during
that period for a single distribution fee. An example: if you get
four installments during the subscription period that your customers
must have, you can update them four times but pay for one distribution
Acceptance of the update subscription technology is deemed to be
acceptance of these conditions.
