Terms and Conditions

  1. A DCE Full Distribution License is a prerequisite for an Object Code Annual Buyout arrangement.
  2. A Licensee may elect to pay the Object Code Fee Buyout for use or distribution of an unlimited number of copies of the Licensed Program in object code form on a Single Operating System, subject to Licensor's approval. The Annual Object Code Fee Buyout Per Operating System covers DCE object code copies used or distributed in a single 12-month Ordering Period on a Single Operating System. The Single Operating System to which the Buyout applies must be current -- that is, available for sale or licensing to the general public during the then current Ordering Period.
    1. A "Single Operating System" is a collection of object code copies compiled by a single party (the "supplier") or by a contractor acting on behalf of the Supplier, from an identical set of lines of operating system source code, differentiated only by the minimum set of source code changes necessary for porting to one or more hardware configurations. Except for such porting-related differences, a Single Operating System must not combine multiple configurations of the source code which can be conditionally compiled to generate different object code copies.
    2. For Buyout purposes, a revised version of a Single Operating System (i.e., an object code copy compiled from a revised version of the operating system source code) shall be included within the definition of that same Single Operating System, provided that (i) the revisions are made by the Supplier of the unrevised version or by a contractor acting on behalf of the Supplier, (ii) the revisions are made solely for the purpose of upgrading the unrevised version, (iii) the revised version is compiled from the source code by the Supplier of the unrevised version or by a contracting on behalf of the Supplier , (iv) the revised version is marketed under the identical name as the unrevised version, (except for the corresponding change in version number), (v) application programs and system software operable on the unrevised version remain operable, in a binary compatible software product offerings and software services agreements, and (vii) both the revised version and the unrevised version are each available for sale or licensing to the general public at some time during the then current Ordering Period.
    3. Licensees who have multiple Operating Systems which are closely related may contact The Open Group for further information and guidelines for possible aggregation.
  3. Fees paid under the per copy schedules for Executive and Services Object Code will not be credited toward Annual Paid Up Option fees.
  4. Licensee may choose Object Code Fee option per operating system. for example, a licensee may select the Annual Paid Up Option for a high volume operating system and select per unit fees for a low volume operating system.
  5. After a licensee pays the Object Code Annual Buyout Option, the licensee is entitled to a 60% discount on per unit fees for additional low volume operating systems.
