“Licence-Key File” means a file created and digitally signed by OpenBrace Limited for use by the Software in determining which features of the Software You are entitled to use.

“Valid Licence-Key File” means a Licence-Key File that You have purchased from OpenBrace Limited or that has otherwise been supplied to You by OpenBrace Limited at its discretion, and that is valid for the version of ObMimic that You are using (as more particularly described in clause 3 herein).

“Valid Professional Edition Licence-Key File” means a Valid Licence-Key File for enabling the “Professional Edition” features of the “Community/Professional Edition” of ObMimic.

“Valid Enterprise Edition Licence-Key File” means a Valid Licence-Key File for the “Enterprise Edition” of ObMimic.

“Major Version Number” means the first component of the version number of a release of the Software, this being the number that precedes the first decimal-point within the version number.

2  Licence Grant

In consideration for and subject to Your compliance with the terms of this Licence Agreement, OpenBrace Limited hereby grants You a perpetual (terminable only in accordance with clause 11 herein), non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to use the Software together with any Licence-Key Files that You have purchased from OpenBrace Limited or that have otherwise been supplied to you by OpenBrace Limited, and to make exact copies of the Software and such Licence-Key Files to the extent necessary for Your own internal use of the Software and for Your own back-up and archival purposes.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, You acknowledge and agree that certain features of the Software are restricted to its “Professional Edition”, and are only available when the Software is configured to use an appropriate Valid Licence-Key File as described in clause 3 below.

3  Licence-Key Files

The Software operates as the “Professional Edition” of ObMimic if it is configured to use a Valid Professional Edition Licence-Key File or a Valid Enterprise Edition Licence-Key File, but otherwise operates as the “Community Edition” of ObMimic, under which a number of features of the Software are not available. You may thus use the Software as the “Community Edition” of ObMimic without purchasing or otherwise obtaining any Licence-Key File, but where you wish to use the features of the Software that are limited to the “Professional Edition” of ObMimic You shall be required to purchase or otherwise obtain from OpenBrace Limited one or more Licence-Key Files. For further details and to purchase Licence-Key Files, refer to the Software’s documentation and the OpenBrace website at http://www.openbrace.com.

You may use any Licence-Key Files that You have purchased from OpenBrace Limited or that have otherwise been supplied to You by OpenBrace Limited as follows:

  • If You have one or more Valid Professional Edition Licence-Key Files, You may use each such Licence-Key File to enable the “Professional Edition” facilities for a single individual user (on any number of computers).
  • If You have one or more Valid Enterprise Edition Licence-Key Files, You may use each such Licence-Key File to enable the “Professional Edition” facilities for up to 100 individual users (on any number of computers).
  • OpenBrace Limited may from time to time at Your request and at its sole discretion provide You with Licence-Key Files for evaluation purposes or for the purposes of “beta-testing” of “beta” releases of the Software. If You have one or more such Licence-Key Files, You may use each such Licence-Key File to enable the “Professional Edition” facilities for a single individual user as if it were a Valid Professional Edition Licence-Key File but subject to any expiry-date or other restrictions that are specified within the file.

You shall use and safeguard all Licence-Key Files in accordance with the provisions of this Licence Agreement and shall procure that the number of individual users that can use the “Professional Edition” features on Your behalf does not exceed the number of users for which you have legally obtained Valid Licence-Key Files, as defined above.

Note that:

  • Each Licence-Key File includes a digital signature that is used by the Software to verify that the file is a genuine ObMimic Licence-Key File created by OpenBrace Limited and with its original contents intact and unaltered; and for the avoidance of doubt, such Licence-Key Files are only valid if this digital signature corresponds with and is correct for the content of the file.
  • The Software includes mechanisms to check whether any Licence-Key File that it is configured to use is valid for the version of the Software being used. Each Licence-Key File is valid in perpetuity for all versions of the Software whose Major Version Number is less than or equal to that for which the Licence-Key File was purchased or supplied, and also for any later versions of the Software whose official release date is no more than one year after the date on which the Licence-Key File was purchased or supplied; except that Licence-Key Files that are supplied for evaluation or beta-testing purposes may differ from this in having an explicit expiry-date after which they are no longer valid, and Licence-Key files that are supplied for beta-testing purposes are only valid for “beta” releases of the Software.
  • The mechanisms within the Software that check the validity of Licence-Key Files do not transmit any information to OpenBrace Limited or to any third-party, and do not require an Internet connection.
