In short about the ADONTEC's Interprocess Communications Library (ADIPC) license agreement
The ADONTEC's Interprocess Communications Library is licensed per developer. One license can be used on a desktop and on a notebook computer as long as it is used by the same developer, and it can not be used concurently or shared by other developers.
You don't need to pay any other fees when you distribute the IPC runtime files with the executable application (e.g. ".EXE") you've created and that is using the IPC.

SINGLE DEVELOPER END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
ADONTEC's Interprocess Communications Library ("SOFTWARE")
© Copyrighted Material - All rights reserved.
This is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or an entity) and ADONTEC® ("THE COMPANY") for use of the SOFTWARE. Your acceptance of this agreement is required to use the SOFTWARE. Please carefully read this agreement before opening the package containing the SOFTWARE, or downloading or installing the SOFTWARE. Your opening of the package containing the SOFTWARE, downloading or installing of the SOFTWARE shall be conclusively deemed to constitute your acceptance of the terms of this agreement. If you do not agree with this agreement, do not open the package containing the SOFTWARE, do not download the SOFTWARE and do not install the SOFTWARE.
Ownership of the SOFTWARE including any documentation (computer files or printed material) accompanying the SOFTWARE and all intellectual property rights therein shall remain at all times with the copyright holder. THE COMPANY hereby grants to you, and you accept, a single developer (individual) non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use, copy and modify THE SOFTWARE only as authorized below. THE COMPANY reserves all rights not expressly granted.
The SOFTWARE may not be used simultaneously by different developers (individuals) at different locations and on different machines, just as it is impossible that one book is read at the same time in different locations by several persons. At no time may the SOFTWARE be used by more than one developer at the same time for development purposes — nor may the SOFTWARE be distributed for use with applications other than those developed by you.
You may use or modify the source code of the included sample code you have received with the SOFTWARE for the sole purpose of developing and supporting your software applications that depend on the SOFTWARE.
"Application developer" can bound and freely ship the redistributable files of the SOFTWARE with the created application (a).
"Component developer" can freely ship the created component but without the redistributable files of the SOFTWARE. The other developer receiving this component must also own a license of the SOFTWARE in order to get access to the redistributable files of the SOFTWARE (b).
(a) You the licensee may use, pass on or sell your own applications (executable file e.g. .exe), which you have written with the SOFTWARE, free of any license fees (royalty-free). The SOFTWARE does include one or more so-called redistributable components (*.dll). The licensee is granted the right to distribute any of the redistributable components referenced by its own applications, in conjunction with and as part of the application, free of any license fees (royalty-free).
(b) You the licensee may distribute your own source code, components, units, libraries (e.g. DLL, OCX, TPU, TPW, LIB, .obj, .so) that depend upon the SOFTWARE free of any license fees (royalty-free). However, the receiver which is also a developer must also purchase a copy of the SOFTWARE in order to use your source code, components, units, libraries to create applications. Any developer using the SOFTWARE directly or indirectly (e.g. through your component) must obtain the right to do so by purchasing a separate license of the SOFTWARE.
This SOFTWARE is licensed only to you, the licensee, and may not be transferred to anyone without the prior written consent of THE COMPANY. Enabling others to use your registration code or serial number is strictly prohibited. In no event may you transfer, rent, lease, sell, redistribute, re-license or sub-license the SOFTWARE. You may not reverse-engineer, decompile, or disassemble the SOFTWARE. A reasonable number of copies may only be made for back-up purposes. Anybody reproducing the SOFTWARE will be prosecuted.
DEMO versions, Freeware etc.
If the customer wishes to offer DEMO versions of his software, then only runtime files of the SOFTWARE that are officially available as DEMO versions in the download area adontec.com may be included. If required, we can also help the customer here. Under no circumstances may the runtime files of the SOFTWARE be used in so-called "freeware", "open source" projects, or in projects providing functional interfaces for software developers without written official approval.
This agreement is effective until terminated. This agreement will terminate automatically without notice from THE COMPANY if you fail to comply with any provision of this agreement. Upon termination you shall destroy the written materials and all copies of the SOFTWARE previously licensed to you.
We always make every effort to supply to you a perfect SOFTWARE. We would like to bring to your attention though that with the present level of technology we cannot guarantee that the SOFTWARE program works interrupt and error-free in all combinations and applications. No guarantee is given for the correctness of the contents of this manual since errors, in spite of all efforts, never can be completely avoided. For this reason we are grateful anytime for comments.
The liability for indirect damages, direct damages, follow on damages and damages to third parties is excluded within the legal framework. The liability through gross negligence and intent is hereby unaffected, in each case though the liability is limited to the purchase price.
The designated developer may install and use the SOFTWARE on the developing station he fully controls and that may include a desktop type of computer and a mobile type of computer in order to have the ability to use the software while in office or on customers side.
