Closed Source License
I'm always willing to negotiate modifications to this license, including the addition of a maintenance contract.
This is a license agreement between Scott Robert Ladd ("Developer") and ??? ("Licensee") in which Developer grants Licensee certain rights in the software subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement. Any rights granted under this license do not limit or eliminate rights belonging to Developer.
"Software" means Brahe, a portable embedded database engine.
"Derivative Work" means a work that is based on the Software and that, if prepared without permission of the Developer, would constitute a copyright infringement.
