For previous tread that has been closed (strangely)
You are totally right, but the first impression is already given at your site: http://trial.alcohol-soft.com/en/
You say to me now: Read at the 3th party site that we install the toolbar. Why over there? Are you not proud enough to show it on your own site? And don't come to me with: "You can deselect the option" I trusted your software and hitted: next next next. Seems I have to revise that.
Makes we wonder why windows 98,ME,2000 users don't get a toolbar? (haven't tried it, don't get fooled again) http://www.free-downloads.net/programs/Alcohol_120__(Windows_98___ME_only)
I was that user MaLing was refering to. Always nice to have a person who knows the small letters, so I read the agreement again, just for you dear MaLing.
Note this beautifull line:
The license to use the SOFTWARE PRODUCT ends at the 31st of December, 2050.
hehe, ok ok, I have to read the rest too, so I read the rest:
This End-User License Agreement is a legal agreement between you
(either an individual or a single entity) and Alcohol Soft
GRANT OF LICENSE. This LICENSE AGREEMENT grants you the following rights:
You may install and use one copy of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT,
or any prior version for the same operating system, on a single computer.
-So This gives me a licence for use, cool, I read on...
If the SOFTWARE PRODUCT is labeled as an upgrade, you must be properly licensed to use a product identified by Alcohol Soft as being eligible for the upgrade in order to use the SOFTWARE PRODUCT.
- Lets see how the agreement defines an "upgrade"?
A SOFTWARE PRODUCT labeled as an upgrade replaces and/or supplements the product that formed the basis for your eligibility for the upgrade. You may use the resulting upgraded product only in accordance with the terms of this LICENSE AGREEMENT.
Now lets read in reverse:
I have an "upgrade"(trial, installed twice, app 2 year period), that means I need a proper licence, which I recieved in the beginning.
What you say is that I cannot try the software again whenever I'm interested?
This is something interesting.
Once upon a time: you had a potentional customers who tried it out once and kindly declineded. Now the customer would like to try again. Too bad. It would be illegal now.
Nice way of getting interested customers.
Now please enlighten me again dear Maling...(but keep it simple, as quoted by Malin, I'm a user who has no consciousness of legality (and buying products)).
As I stated befor:
Alcohol provides excellent burning software. Be proud at that.
A proud company can also accept comments, and looks for a sollution.
