VSL disclaim liability on its own components. The CDROMs are
merely data containers for transfering code, but do Not
transfer a license for use. If you want VSL to assess your
requirements & license its software for use in your
context, you must pay VSL a consultancy fee in addition to the
data media / CDROM cost.
No patent licensing included.
- VSL merely provide the CDROMs as a data container; which
bits you choose to use is your concern, not ours.
- If the law in your legal jurisdiction requires software
patent licensing, you must determine that, & you must
purchase, & licence whatever you determine appropriate
from whoever you determine appropriate.
- ( Many consider software patents
to be immoral & damaging to progress in society &
business, being an impediment to distribution of free public
domain software. There are active campaigns to get
damaging software patent law changed, & to rein in an
aggressive European Patent Office that sells software patents to obstruct
the public. )
Fitness For Purpose
We make no recommendation of use. Decide yourself if the CDROMs
& software are usable or appropriate for your purposes. If
you want a professional opinion, hire a computer consultant to advise you if the
software is appropriate for your purpose, &/or to customise
to your needs.
