THIS IS A TRIAL LICENSE ONLY. AS DESCRIBED HEREIN, YOU MAY NOT USE THIS LICENSE FOR “PRODUCTION” PURPOSES.

1.    GRANT OF SDK LICENSE.

1.1    The SDK is licensed, not sold.  Subject to Licensee’s compliance with this Agreement and payment of applicable fees, if any, Wowza grants Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, revocable license during the Term to access and use the items in the SDK solely for the purpose of Licensee internally testing and evaluating the SDK, and Licensee designing, developing, and testing a mobile device application for the iOS (Apple) or Android (Google) platforms that transmits (streams) audio and/or video content to a Wowza Streaming Engine server, a Wowza Streaming Cloud service account, or both (each, a “Licensee Application”).

1.3    For the avoidance of doubt, this Agreement and the license grant in this Section 1 shall have no impact on software products and services separately licensed by Licensee from Wowza pursuant to a separate agreement.  

1.4    Wowza reserves the right to limit or restrict access to the SDK trial in its sole discretion.

2.    SDK AND LICENSE RESTRICTIONS.  The license granted herein by Wowza to Licensee does not grant Licensee the right to, and Licensee agrees not to:

2.1    distribute any Licensee Application to a third party, regardless of whether or not Licensee receives compensation for such distribution, or to use a Licensee Application within Licensee’s organization for “production” or non-testing purposes;

2.2    use the SDK for any purpose that violates applicable law or that is not expressly permitted by this Agreement, including without limitation, using the SDK to create any product or service other than the type of mobile device application expressly permitted by Section 1;

2.3    work around any technical limitation in the SDK;

2.4    remove, alter, or obscure in any way watermarks imposed by the SDK and contained in the Licensee Application;

2.5    engage in any activity, including but not limited to development or distribution of an application or service, that is likely or intended to, or does in fact, interfere with, disrupt, damage, or access in an unauthorized manner, any Wowza or third party software, server, service, network, or other property;

2.6    sublicense, sell, transmit, rent, lease, loan, distribute, disclose, publish, or otherwise transfer any part of the SDK to any third party, or permit access to or use of any part of the SDK by or on behalf of any third party;

2.7    reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble any part of the SDK (except and only to the extent permitted by applicable law despite this restriction);

2.8    create or distribute any malicious, deceptive, or unlawful applications;

2.9    make copies of the SDK;

2.10    create another SDK or any other derivative work of the SDK

2.11    include any part of the SDK in Licensee’s product(s) except for sample code as expressly permitted herein;

2.12    remove, obscure, alter, or interfere with any watermarks or other licensing mechanisms imposed by Wowza;

2.14    export or use the SDK or Confidential Information in any manner that violates applicable law.

3.    Sample Code.  Wowza may include sample code within the SDK.  Notwithstanding restrictions to the contrary in Section 2 and unless Wowza instructs Licensee to the contrary, Licensee may not distribute sample code provided by Wowza externally or internally within Licensee’s organization.

4.    NO DISTRIBUTION OR PRODUCTION USE OF LICENSEE APPLICATION.  Licensee agrees to not distribute, either to third parties or within Licensee’s organization, any Licensee Application pursuant to this Agreement.  Even if merely used internally, Licensee agrees to not use any Licensee Application developed pursuant to this Agreement for any “production” or commercial purposes whatsoever.    

5.    WOWZA PRODUCTS & SERVICES.  Wowza may from time to time provide products and services that interact with the SDK or with the Licensee Product.  Wowza may change or cancel such products or services at any time, or limit their availability.  Licensee agrees to not use the SDK in any way that could harm, or gain unauthorized access to, any Wowza product, service, data, account, or network.  

6.    MAINTENANCE & SUPPORT.  Wowza will receive technical support inquiries and provide technical and other support related to the SDK (“Support”) in a manner Wowza deems appropriate in its sole discretion; Wowza may notify Licensee of changes in what constitutes Support or how Support is to be requested or received, from time to time.  Although Wowza will endeavor to respond to Support inquiries in a commercially reasonable manner, Wowza does not commit to any specific timeframe for such responses and does not commit to resolve all Support inquiries.  Wowza may also, in its sole discretion, provide software updates (including without limitation, upgrades, improvements, bypasses, and bug fixes, collectively “Updates”). Support and Updates are each provided pursuant to this Agreement and Wowza policies then in effect.  Wowza may chose to release Updates at any time but is not required to do so and does not commit to provide Updates according to any timeframe (for the avoidance of doubt and for example, Wowza does not commit to provide Updates within any timeframe following release of new operating system versions).

7.    WOWZA TRADEMARKS.  Licensee will not use any Wowza trademark, or Wowza’s name or product or service names, to market the Licensee Application, unless authorized in advance by Wowza.  Regardless of the foregoing, any use of Wowza trademarks, name, service mark, trade name, logo, design, trade dress, domain name, or other brand designation shall inure to the sole benefit of Wowza.  Licensee will not contest or aid in contesting the validity or ownership of, or Wowza’s rights in, any Wowza trademark, name, service mark, trade name, logo, design, trade dress, domain name, or other brand designation, or take any action in derogation of Wowza’s rights therein, including without limitation, applying to register any trademark, trade name, domain name, service mark, or other designation that is confusingly similar to any Wowza trademark or Wowza domain name, in any event as determined in Wowza’s sole discretion.  Licensee hereby exclusively and irrevocably assigns all its rights in or to, and all rights obtained from or as a result of, any filing, application, or attempt to register, any trademark, trade name, domain name, service mark, or other designation that is confusingly similar to any Wowza name, service mark, trade name, logo, design, trade dress, domain name, or other brand designation or Wowza domain name, as determined in Wowza’s sole discretion.

8.    LICENSEE TRADEMARKS.  Licensee agrees that Wowza may use its name, organization name, logos, and other identifying information to identify Licensee as a Wowza customer in marketing and similar efforts, such as marketing collateral, trade show signage, and website content. Licensee agrees that such use of its name shall be without royalty or other obligation to Licensee by Wowza.

9.    IDEAS.  Licensee will test and evaluate the SDK.  Licensee shall promptly notify Wowza of any problems or defects encountered in the SDK, or ideas for enhancements or changes to the SDK (collectively, “Ideas”).  By providing such Ideas, whether such Ideas are conceived of or provided to Wowza during the Term of after, Licensee grants to Wowza a worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable and exclusive license, with the right to sublicense, to use and disclose the Ideas in any manner Wowza chooses and to display, perform, copy, make, have made, use, sell, and otherwise dispose of Wowza’s and its sublicensee’s products embodying such Ideas in any manner and via any media Wowza or its sublicensees choose, without reference or obligation of any kind to Licensee.  Licensee warrants that it will not give Wowza any Idea: (i) that Licensee has reason to believe is subject to any patent, copyright, or other intellectual property claim or right of a third party; or (ii) subject to license terms that seek to require any Wowza product incorporating or derived from any Idea, or other Wowza intellectual property, to be licensed to or otherwise shared with any third party.

10.    TERM.  This Agreement is effective from the Effective Date and will remain in effect for sixty (60) days from the Effective Date unless Wowza and Licensee agree to a different period of time in writing, email accepted (“Term”).  Wowza may unilaterally extend the Term by email or written notice to Licensee.
