License for EWS API FOR JAVA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I am wondering if the licensing terms for EWS API 1.2 forbids ms to rent, lease or lend the product I develop with it, and which may contain some or all of the files listed in the REDIST.TXT file. Technically, sec. 4 of the license terms says that "You may not ... * rent, lease or lend the software; ...", and the files in REDIST.TXT are part of the software. However, I would find it strange if the use of REDIST files could actually limit me from renting, leasing, lending my product. Background: our complex and somewhat costly appliances are sometimes leased by the customer (rent/lease), and in some cases the customer gets to test them for free (lend).

    My organization has a strict governance process and any software/API used for our products must be obtained under licensing terms which do not restrict us from marketing and exploiting our products.

    Would be thankful for any hint, even if it is just a pointoer to some place where the question has been answered.

    Thanks, Udo
