Volume licenses provide the right for persons affiliated with the School of Computer Science to use software. That right is revoked upon termination of affiliation for any reason. A few companies provide ways for individuals to obtain permanent rights to use the software upon termination. Most volume licenses provide "right to use" and, in some cases, "installation privileges" for active faculty, staff, and students of the School of Computer Science. The software cannot be used by or given to others.
None of the licenses held by the School of Computer Science permits the commercial or for-profit use of the applications. Some of the licenses restrict use of the software to instructional purposes.
How to get:
Note: In many cases, a host is only eligible to have an application installed on it if the host is receiving Facilities software licensing and software support services (see our documentation on support charges for more information about specific Facilities support services and their costs). If you cannot access a specific application on one of our software distribution servers, you probably need specific permission to download, install or use it. To obtain such permission, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the software package, and the CMU asset number and hostname of the computer on which the software will be installed.
