the general restrictions contained herein apply to anyone who distributes
SUPER-MAINT, be it one copy or many.
EmmaSoft retains all rights to Programmer's SUPER-MAINT(tm). SUPER-MAINT
is protected by United States Copyright Law.
You may distribute SUPER-MAINT provided you comply with the following
1. Professional Distributors of shareware (and other programs) MUST
contact EmmaSoft before distributing SUPER-MAINT. In catalogs there
MUST be a line in the program description describing the registration
fee, and somewhere in the catalog there must be a satisfactory
explanation of the shareware concept, including the facts that all
rights to this copyrighted program are retained by the copyright
owner, that shareware is NOT the same as public domain programs,
and that registration fee is required if the program is used beyond
the trial period.
As of this writing we are requiring that distribution disks cost a
user no more than $10. When you contact us please indicate what you
charge for distribution. Professional distribution is authorized by
letter only. You must have authorization in hand from us BEFORE
2. No files may be changed. All text and settings must be as shipped
originally from EmmaSoft. The original .zip file (SUPER.ZIP) must
be used to do this. When unzipped it has a message confirming the
authenticity of the files. This both insures that they are, indeed,
the original files, and protects against viruses.
If you recieved SUPER-MAINT on a distribution disk you must make
exact copies of all files on the disk. You may then distribute
SUPER-MAINT on another disk (containing all the files). You MUST NOT
compress the files yourself. If you recieved a compressed version
that does not display the message, "Authentic Files Verified",
followed by a number and "EmmaSoft Co." it is NOT supported by
EmmaSoft. Contact EmmaSoft immediately for a good copy.
3. Some professional vendors use their own compression package.
EmmaSoft will authorize such distribution on a case by case
basis. Please indicate how you plan to distribute SUPER-MAINT.
If you have SUPER-MAINT on the distribution disk and would like
to distribute it in .zip format EmmaSoft will gladly provide
you with a .zip file. This .zip file displays an authentication
notice (and "EmmaSoft Co.") that confirms the file came from
the original author. This is a protection to our (and your)
customers against corrupted files and viruses.
