Formin - License

1. The FORMIN license is neither a sale nor a gift, though freely available. FORMIN is the original input-output program of the INTOPIA™ B2B international business simulation. As such, it is an integral part of the intellectual property labeled INTOPIA™ B2B. When in doubt, the provisions of the B2B license apply to FORMIN.

2. The superseding B2B license agreement is incorporated as a separate file on the home page.

3. Master Program to be Intact
A distinction is to be made between the B2B Master Program (MP) and its input/output module, the FORMIN Program. The MP must remain intact at all times. The MP shall not be reverse engineered, decompiled, or disassembled. Amendments made from time to time by INTOPIA, Inc. to the MP and/or FORMIN are to be viewed as extensions of this intellectual property, and are subject to the License herein. Licensee (or the Fac) shall not alter or remove the designation of the Licensee, nor the names of the authors, from INTOPIA output pages.

4. Limits on use
A FORMIN licensee may develop an alternative version of the FORMIN Program, or a different input/output module. Any such change is to be submitted to INTOPIA, Inc., who will decide whether the term FORMIN (or some derivative thereof) is to be applied to the change. Absent a specific case-by-case permission of INTOPIA, Inc., any change in the input/output module may only be used in runs conducted by the institution where the change originated. Thus such modification and the resulting Program shall not be sold, licensed, given away, or otherwise transferred to any third party, either directly or through middlemen, unless written permission has been obtained from INTOPIA, Inc. and present Licensor has ascertained that the third party already has an unexpired B2B license.

5. Limited Warranty
Licensor warrants that FORMIN program and auxiliary software provided by Licensor will substantially conform to published specifications and documentation, provided that it is used with IBM-compatible hardware and with the Windows (or succeeding Microsoft) operating system. Licensee recognizes that FORMIN software is inherently complex and may not be completely free from errors.

Licensor will replace any defective disks of the Master Program at no charge, if Licensee returns its original set of INTOPIA disks within 120 days of shipment of the original disks. This service requires that a signed copy of this Agreement is on hand at INTOPIA, Inc.

Except as expressly set forth above, no other warranty, express or implied, is made with respect to the program or services provided herein.

This License represents the entire agreement between Licensor and Licensee with respect to the subject matter hereof and shall supersede all prior agreements and communications of the parties, oral or written.

6. Limited Liability
In no case will Licensor be liable for any direct or indirect damages arising out of or in connection with Licensee use or inability to use INTOPIA.
