LTR LICENSING, FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FAQ - Can I modify the VIs on the LTR CD for use in my LabVIEW application?
Yes. Our license states that as an LTR subscriber:
1. You are granted the permission to use or alter the LTR VIs in any manner you see fit, including the making of derivatives. 2. If you publish any derivative of any specific item of Technical Content included in this LTR Software, you must include any notice of copyright of the original LTR Author and of LTR Publishing, Inc. This is not a restriction, just a request to acknowledge the source of information. Basically this means you may not delete the LTR references contained in the Documentation area of the VI Properties. 3. This permission does not extend to wholesale copying or wholesale modification of the Technical Content in its entirety or large portions thereof. This means you may not take most or all of our products and resell them under another name, e.g. the LabVIEW Technical Report.
FAQ - If I use LTR VIs in my LabVIEW application, can I distribute the VIs in a commercial application?
LTR licensing policies have always permitted commercial distribution of LabVIEW applications that include original or modified LTR VIs, as long as the LTR references are included. We request in the LTR masthead (found on page 2 of each issue) that you notify LTR of commercial distribution as a courtesy to the contributing authors.
As with most purchased software, you may not burn multiple copies of the LTR CDs to distribute to others. A single user subscriber should not make photocopies or PDFs of LTR articles to distribute to others. Please refer interested colleagues to our website at ltrpub.com to view free sample issues and obtain order information. Group subscription discounts are also available to order online.
FAQ - Can I allow access to the LTR articles and VIs on my company server?
You are permitted to add LTR VIs that you have modified to your company code repository for use by others. You also can share your LabVIEW applications that include LTR VIs. Remember to keep the LTR references in the VI Properties.
However, you should not put LTR products, such as the searchable Library of Back Issues CD on your server for company-wide reference without purchasing the correct number of licenses. Multiple user licensing information is available at ltrpub.com/cd for the Library of Back Issues CD.
FAQ - I’d like to submit articles and VIs to LTR for publication. Do I retain the original copyright?
Yes, authors retain the copyright to their original work. LTR typically adds its own editorial content to both articles and disk material, and exercises editorial selection and control in creating compilations of various authors’ works into its publications. Consequently, LTR maintains copyright ownership and protection of its derivative and compilation works, while the authors retain the original copyright to their work. Authors sign a permission to publish agreement granting use of the material by subscribers under the LTR licensing agreement.
FAQ - Does the single-user license in the LTR license mean that I can use my LTR Products on more than one computer?
Yes. When an individual purchases an LTR product with a single-user license, permission is granted to use the LTR products on all computers used by that single individual.
This License Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions for licensing of the LTR Publishing, Inc. (“LTR”) computer program and documentation with which this License Agreement is included and any updates or maintenance releases thereto (the “LTR Software”). Installing and using the LTR Software indicates that you have read and understand this License Agreement and accept its terms and conditions. If you do not agree to all of the terms of this License Agreement, return this product for a full refund.
The purpose of this overview is to explain the licensing policies and procedures of LTR Publishing, Inc. contained in this License Agreement. LTR publishes technical articles and publishes source code and VIs ("Technical Content") in compilations and in stand_alone formats. LTR's articles and Technical Content are authored either directly by LTR or by a wide variety of individuals who submit their work to LTR for publication and use but retain the original copyright to their work ("LTR Authors"). In publishing the works of other authors, LTR typically adds its own editorial content to both articles and Technical Content, and exercises editorial selection and control in creating compilations of various authors' works into its publications. Consequently, LTR maintains copyright ownership and protection of its derivative and compilation works.
The goal of this License Agreement is to protect LTR's interest in compilations of articles and Technical Content while permitting purchasers of the LTR Software to make use of the information contained in the articles and Technical Content. As a result, LTR prohibits anyone from copying in whole or part individual articles, compilations of articles, and compilations of source code, but permits end_user licensees to copy and use individual Technical Content and to make emergency backups of LTR products.
