• Licensing of RMPrepUSB

click tracking

RMPartUSB.exe 
and RMPrepUSB.exe were originally developed by me (Steve Si) for RM Education. The intellectual property of these two programs thus belongs to RM.
RM have given their permission for these programs to be made publicly available and these utilities are free for public use. 
The downloads for RMPrepUSB also contain some helper programs which are distributed under GPL licence or with the original author's permission.

Note: Easy2Boot, the grub4dos scripts and other utilities have been developed by me privately in my own time and often they have been adapted from the work of others. If you wish to use the grub4dos scripts, all I ask is that you clearly acknowledge this website as the source and give credit to any other developers where appropriate.

If you use any content from this site for your own site or blog or YouTube video, please acknowledge this site as the source. Any verbatim copying of large portions of articles from this site is against copyright laws.

You must not host for download, share, distribute or sell copies of RMPrepUSB.exe or RMPartUSB.exe

So the basic terms of use for RMPrepUSB.exe and RMPartUSB.exe are:
  1. FreeWare, Closed Source, Propietary - free for private use by any individual
  2. Must not be distributed publicly (via any means both physical or electronic/web based) without RM's or the Author's permission
  3. Must not be sold (or included in a product which is sold) without permission from RM
  4. Source code is not available (though please ask if you require any help in specific areas)
  5. Can be used internally by commercial companies but should not be given to their customers or end users without permission/licensing agreement. End customers can be directed to this website if they wish to download it themselves or multi-user licenses can be purchased.
  6. Patches, language files, etc. sent to the author/RM are considered clear for release and the property of RM.
  7. Use the software at your own risk. No responsibility can be taken for any data loss or other damage which these utilities may cause.
Explanation for licensing terms
RM Education plc are a commercial company, and as such they would not want other commercial companies to use this intellectual property to their own competitive advantage.
RM wish to control the release and distribution of the software as it is the property of RM Education plc. If you wish to distribute these utilities as part of your own solution, you must ask permission and make it clear to your end users that these utilities cannot be freely distributed or sold.

RM may charge a licence fee if you wish to use these RMPrepUSB or RMPartUSB as part of a commercial solution to supply to your end users/customers. Please email sales@rm.com (attn: Classroom Technologies) for pricing details (note: Please only contact RM about licensing of these two utilities - for all other enquiries please contact me). Only the RMPartUSB.exe and RMPrepUSB.exe programs will be covered by the licence - other 'helper' utilities are not covered and you must ensure you have the correct rights to use/distribute them by contacting the authors or checking their own licensing conditions (e.g. GPL). Only 'reasonable endeavours' support can be offered if the product is licensed by RM (please try before you buy!).

Any private donations made to this website will go towards my favourite charity and the maintenance and development of this site -  such donations do not give rights to any form of licensing or access to the source code or distribution rights or support.

Acknowledgements: The author has spent much of his own time developing and improving these utilities and this website with the help of many others from reboot.pro who have also been very generous with their help, time and advice. Most of the tutorials on this site use Chenall's grub4dos and much of the grub4dos batch coding has been inspired, copied, improved or changed from original scripts by Chenall and others.
