LEAD'sEULA allows the user to install the SDK on a development computer and use the SDK for development of an end user application, by integrating certain LEAD redistributable libraries and files into the end user application using the SDK sample code and documentation. The basic rules for the development licenses are as follows:
License Needed for Each Developer. A copy of LEADTOOLS must be licensed for each programmer who uses the SDK. For example, if there are three (3) programmers building a single application with LEADTOOLS, three (3) development licenses of LEADTOOLS need to be purchased. (Discounts are available for additional development licenses.) Development Seat Frequently Asked Questions
License Needed for Each Application Developed. A copy of LEADTOOLS must be licensed for each application that is developed. For example, if three (3) separate applications are developed, three (3) LEADTOOLS Development Licenses need to be purchased. (Discounts are available for additional development licenses.) How do we define "single application" for purposes of the Development License?
End User Applications Only. LEADTOOLS may only be used to develop an "end user" application. An end user application is an application for business or personal use that may not be copied or redistributed by the user or used to develop software. LEADTOOLS may not be used in a developer oriented product, such as a development toolkit or a product that contains an API. In addition, if all or any portion of an application is redistributed by our customer's customer, the application is not an end user application within the meaning of the LEADTOOLS EULA. If a customer wishes to use LEADTOOLS in connection with the development of an application that is not an "end user" application, the customer may be able to obtain a customized license from LEAD.
