IF YOU ARE UNCERTAIN ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS TO USE THE SOFTWARE, AUDIO CONTENT, OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, YOU SHOULD CONTACT YOUR LEGAL ADVISOR BEFORE PROCEEDING.
The Company grants to You (sometimes referred to herein as the “Licensee”), a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual license to use the Software for your own personal use but not for sublicense, subject to the terms and conditions stated in this License. You may: (a) install the Software on up to two computers used by you; (b) transfer the Software from one computer to another provided that it is used only by you; (c) copy the Software into any machine-readable form solely for backup reasons; (d) transfer the Software to another party if the other party agrees to accept all terms and conditions of this Agreement; (e) use the Software to create your own original music compositions or soundtracks for your film, video, music, and audio projects, and you may broadcast and/or distribute your own original music compositions or soundtracks that were created; and (f) use the Software to compose original music compositions or soundtracks or for a stock music library (original compositions or soundtracks created entirely by you using the Software that you, in turn, license as an original composition or soundtrack to third parties for use in film, television, radio, or other media), provided the completed composition or soundtrack is created solely by you. If you transfer the Software to another party, you must at the same time transfer all copies, whether in printed or machine-readable form, to the same party and destroy any copies not transferred. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (i) you may install and personally use the licensed software on two devices (e.g. one laptop, one work station), provided that the Software is used only on one device regularly as simultaneous use on more than one hardware device is not permitted; and, (ii) if the single computer is connected to a multi-user system, this License shall apply to all users of the system. In case you change or replace any hardware you use, all Software on such hardware used must be deleted immediately.
Unless expressly permitted by this License or otherwise applicable law, you must not, or allow any third party to: (a) rent, lease, sell, re-sell, loan, distribute, sublicense, for profit or otherwise, or otherwise transfer the Software or any audio content it contains or copies of the Software or the such audio content it contains or the accompanying documentation, or any of your rights and obligations granted under this License, except as expressly stated above; (b) install or electronically transfer the Software or related audio content on a network for use by multiple users, unless each such user has purchased a license; (c) decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble the Software; (d) remove or destroy any copyright notices or other proprietary markings of the Software; (e) modify, alter, or adapt the Software; (f) create derivative works based on the Software, (g) mix, combine, filter, re-synthesize, or otherwise edit the sounds associated with the Software, either as provided by the Company or reformatted for use as sounds, multisounds, samples, multisamples, wavetables, soundsets, programs or patches in a sampler, microchip, computer, software, game console or any sample playback device. Except as expressly permitted above, any attempt to lease, sublicense, assign or transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder is not permitted and void.
You agree that you will take all reasonable steps to protect any product downloaded or otherwise offered on or acquired from any Company website (each, a “Website”), the Software and any accompanying documentation from unauthorized copying or use. You agree not to modify the Software or any component thereof to circumvent any method or means adopted or implemented by the Company to protect against or discourage the unlicensed use of copying of the Software.
