[QUOTE="Li'l Abner"]\nOK. Here's my story. I'm retired and I enjoy helping people out with\ncomputer problems. I don't have a store front and word of my abilities has\njust spread by word of mouth. However I only take enough money to replace\nany parts or software I use. So in that sense, I guess these people could\nbe called clients. I prefer to just call them friends or frineds of\nfriends.\n\nI asked a question in the MalwareBytes forum about purchasing copies of the\npaid version of MBam and installing it on other people's computers. Lots of\npeople are reluctant to use their credit cards online. The person who\nanswered suggested that I might be violating their EULA by using\nMalwareBytes to clean up other people's computers. I do have the paid\nversion installed on *my* computer, but on computers I work on I always\ndownload the latest free version and install it. It's the best there is so\nnaturally I'm goind to use it... usually first. But I'm not using MY copy.\nSo here's the way the EULA starts. Line 1 is the one that counts.\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nEULA - End User License Agreement\n\nSubject to the restrictions below, you may use the Malwarebytes' Software\nfor any legitimate purpose.\n\nIn return, we simply require that you agree:\n\n1. Not to use this software for commercial use without proper licensing.\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n\nWhat is "proper licensing"?\n\nWhat is the difference if I download and install it on Joe's computer and\nJoe doing it himself?\n\nIf I help you shingle your roof, do I have to have a license to use the\nhammer?\n\n(I'm probably going to lose this one)[/QUOTE]\n\nYou can download it once and then copy the installer to as many hosts as\nyou want. If it's the free version, no more requirements. If it's the\npaid version, you'll be prompted for the license key when you do the\ninstall. There is no restrictions on how many copies of the installer\nyou have as that itself is not an installation or use of the licensed\nsoftware (in fact, there's a good chance that the installer is NOT their\nproduct but someone else's product they used to bundle their software\nfiles).\n\nWhether the free or paid version, you can have as many copies of the\ninstaller as you want as you haven't installed anything yet with it.\nThe license applies to the software delivered by the installer, not to\nthe installer itself. If the free version, you can use the same\ninstaller on multiple hosts or make copies of the installer and use that\non other hosts. Same for the paid version EXCEPT the step where you\nhave to enter the license key after which you actually have an\n*instance* of the software against which the license applies.\n\nWhen you run MBAM's installer and get to a dialog where you can click on\nthe titlebar icon (left end) to select About, you will see the install\nis Inno Setup (www.innosetup.com). That's Inno's product, not MBAM's.\nThey don't own Inno. They cannot regulate the distribution or execution\nof their installer for a license of a product that isn't their property.\nPut the installer on a USB thumb drive, memory card, DVD, e-mail it, FTP\nit, store it on online storage to retrieve it from there (although by\nthen you might as well as just download it from MBAM) or do whatever you\nwant with the installer to get it to the other hosts. MBAM's license\ndoesn't apply against that installer program. It only applies against\nwhatever the installer delivers.\n\nMBAM's license applies only against their property, not Inno's property.\nOnly after you run the installer to deliver MBAM's property is their\nlicensing applicable. Even MBAM knows that. Read their EULA which\nstates, "By installing or running this software, ...". "This software"\nis their software, not Inno's installer program. The clause "This\nLicense applies to one instance of the Software, which may only be\ninstalled on one computer at a time." is to restrict the distribution of\nthe license (which is moot in the case of the free version regarding\ndistribution). It's for the paid version to ensure that one license is\ninstalled on only one computer, not repeatedly installed on other\ncomputers.\n\nSo it looks like you are just fine the way you are doing things. Their\nlicense doesn't apply against the Inno installer so you can make as many\ncopies as you want and distribute it to as many hosts as you want. It's\nwhen you *run* the installer to then deposit MBAM's software that their\nlicense comes into play - but really don't make logical sense regarding\nthe free version and applies to their commercial version. Since you\naren't repeatedly installing the same paid-for version on multiple\ncomputers, you are not violating their EULA.
