IBM grants you a non-exclusive license to use the program. For program licensing agreements for programs announced prior to May 1, 1999, please contact your on-site IBM office or your local IBM partner. Earlier this year, we published a monthly royalty (MLC) blog for IBM System z. The International Program License Agreement (IPLA) software is the second major category for licensing IBM software on the z Mainframe system. The software license for IBM System z can be a complicated and confusing subject and there is no way to cover all the obscure quirks (for data recording, IBM is not the only reader that mystically makes royalties complex). Most system z end-users, even app developers, don`t really understand how licensing is calculated or how they can save money if the licensing model for data centers is slightly modified. This article explains the most common approaches to licensing and makes the following assumptions: Products based on the z/OS operating system must be licensed for all LPARs and all machine capabilities for which z/OS is exported. This often includes products such as memory management, performance management, tape management and security management products. Assimil8 Limited is in no way responsible for any defects resulting from the changes made to the software by the licensee. You agree to use all licenses in accordance with the terms of the licence and to exempt Assimil8 Limited from any third-party claim if this is not the case. This limit applies not only to the activities of Assimil8 Limited, but also to the activities of its suppliers and consultants.
It is the maximum or the Assimil8 Limited, as well as its suppliers and consultants who are collectively responsible. With license information (LI), one of the IPLA agreements is provided with the associated IBM software when delivered. If the client has not previously agreed to agree on the licensing conditions that have come into effect for the program, either the international program licensing agreement or the international licensing agreement applies to unsecured programs, as stated in the IA. Some LIs have been published in previous versions of these basic licensing agreements that you can view with LI search. The taker may only transfer the program and all the licensee`s rights and obligations within the licensee`s company if the company`s subsidiary accepts the terms of this agreement.
