Limited License

By paying the single-user registration fee for ANSIPLUS, the registered user is granted a license to use the ANSIPLUS software on any single computer system. The registered version may be copied only for installation and backup purposes on that single computer system. The registered version is not Shareware or Freeware, so it may not be copied for others.

Non-registered users of ANSIPLUS are licensed only to evaluate or to use the Freeware ANSIPLUS programs and device driver on any number of computers. Any other use of Freeware copies of ANSIPLUS by any person, business, corporation, or government organization is not permitted.

Permission is hereby granted for individuals, companies or institutions to copy the non-registered Freeware ANSIPLUS package for their own use or for others to try, provided all of the following conditions are met:

Because ANSIPLUS is distributed indirectly as Shareware or Freeware, the driver contains internal checks to increase its resistance to tampering. Users are therefore not licensed to alter or "patch" the driver, and the driver will terminate installation or will not work properly if it detects attempts to change it.
