|T-Splines ties licensing to customer, not computer|
The new licensing scheme specifically ties the license to a user.
October 26, 2007
T-Splines, Inc., a leading provider of organic 3d modeling software in styling, industrial design, CAD, CAE and entertainment, today announced that effective immediately, all licenses of T-Splines for Rhino and T-Splines for Maya [and now tsElements for SolidWorks may be activated on one work computer and one personal computer.
"Since the release of T-Splines for Rhino last month, we were surprised by the very high number of users who reported that they work on a desktop machine for their day job, then continue their work at home at night on a laptop or a personal computer. These users expressed a desire to be able to continue their T-Splines work, along with their CAD work, at home after being in the office," said Matt Sederberg, CEO of T-Splines.
Effective immediately, all previously purchased and future T-Splines licenses may be activated twice: once on a work computer and once on a laptop/home computer.
Sederberg attributed this new decision to the trust built up in the T-Splines community."We trust our users. We are a very small software company, so every member of our organization—including each programmer—interacts with our users. Our users have been very good to us in giving feedback throughout the evolution of our products, and this is our effort to show the same interest in their well-being as they show in ours."
The new licensing scheme specifically ties the license to a user. Companies may not buy one license and install it on two work computers for two different employees to use.
