QR1. Can I distribute dLSoft components with applications I have created.

Answer

Applications: All dLSoft application software is licenced for use on a single computer and it is illegal to install the software on more than one computer without obtaining a licence. It is also theft to copy dLSoft software and pass the copies to others. Multiple licences and site licences for any of our applications are available at reasonable cost.

Developers kits: Developers kits are available with either a single user licence or a "multi-user/redistribution" licence. A redistribution licence must be obtained if you wish to redistribute any of the kit components with a commercial application which you have developed. Single-user Developers kits can be used only on the machine on which the product was installed.

Developer components: Active Barcode Components are supplied as single-developer products with run-times which are royalty-free for up to 10,000 distributions. Design time licences may not be distributed and may not be installed on internet servers.
dBarcode DLLs and dBarcode.NET components are available with either a single computer licence or a "multi-computer/redistribution" licence. A redistribution licence must be obtained if you wish to redistribute any of the kit components with a commercial application which you have developed. Single-user components can be used only on the machine on which the product was installed.

Barcode fonts: Single-licence barcode fonts are licenced for use only on a single machine and may be used without restriction for printing from that machine. If you are developing an application that uses any of our barcode fonts or embeds any of our barcode fonts in a web page or pdf document then you will need a multi-user/redistribution licence. The multi-user version of the font contains an embedding licence code. Multi-user/redistribution licences also permit up to 10,000 copies of the relevant font and/or font tools to be distributed with your application.
