UC-SDRL Research Software License

While all licenses to use the UC-SDRL Research Software are free, they all require the purchase of a Distribution/Maintenance Fee to cover the initial distribution of the software and maintenance for the first year.   The Distribution/Maintenance Fee varies according to the number of users. 

The procedure for a UC-SDRL Research Software License acceptance is somewhat simplified, compared to the procedure in the past, in that a UC-SDRL Research Software License can be aggreed upon via the web by using a "click-thru" license acceptance.  In this case the individual is agreeing to abide by the Terms and Conditions of the License.  Licenses that involve a multiple user situation (Multiple User, Educational User or Source Code User) are only slightly more complicated in that a list of the multple users must be included in the Software Security File instead of just one user.  Note that, anyone from the organization associated with the users may also execute the "click-thru" license acceptance but it is not required.   When and if the software is eventually installed, the actual user will be required to accept the license as part of the installation procedure.  In all cases,  each individual is agreeing to abide by the Terms and Conditions of the license.
