|License and pricing for Conference-CD||
The Conference-CD system and documentation (Conference-CD) are Copyright © 1997-2010 PHD Computer Consultants Ltd. You must not re-use, decompile or otherwise mis-use the Conference-CD software.
Each CD you produce containing the Conference-CD runtime carries an encrypted licence identifying you or your company as the registered licence holder. Please ensure you purchase an appropriate licence for the Conference-CDs you intend to produce.
While the Conference-CD Evaluation Kit is fully functional, there are various limits. The number of source files processed by the system is limited to 5. The number of image files indexed by the search engine is limited to 60. CDs created using the Evaluation license will function correctly for 30 days only.
If you do not subsequently purchase a full license, you must delete all copies of the Evaluation Kit software, documentation, and any generated output from your computers and destroy any CDs or other media produced.
You are permitted to distribute the Evaluation Kit in its entirety without change, but you are not permitted to incorporate it into any other product.
Contact us for a Temporary License if you want to release these limits for a short period. With the Evaluation and Temporary licences, text will be inserted on all generated pages stating that the CD has been generated with un-licensed software.
A Standard License does not permit the custom modification of any part of the image generated by the Conference-CD system and, indeed, if the image is modified, certain elements of the generated image will not function.
Images generated under a Standard License carry PHDCC publicity messages that may not be removed by custom modification of the image. Such publicity messages can be removed and other customisations effected by purchasing additional plug-in software elements that will be made available in the future. PHDCC publicity messages may also be removed by buying a Professional Subscription or Consultant Subscription License.
A Standard License may be used without time limit and entitles you to support and minor upgrades during the year after purchase.
The Professional Subscription license lets you use one brand on all CDs created - please email the required brand text to [email protected] and we will send you a brand file by return.
A Professional Subscription License is for the use of a single Content Owner. If you wish to produce CDs for many Content Owners, then you must buy a Consultant Subscription License. The "Content Owner" is the overall source of the information being presented at a given conference.
A Professional Subscription License includes the branding of the generated image with a single brand name. This brand name may not be changed and will be displayed to the user of any CDs produced.
A Professional Subscription License permits the custom modification of the generated image (other than modification of the chosen brand name). All plug-in features available to Standard License holders at additional cost are included at no extra charge with a Professional Subscription License.
Purchasing a Professional Subscription License entitles you to support and all upgrades during the year after purchase.
A Consultant Subscription License permits the branding of the generated image with any brand name, or no brand name.
A Consultant Subscription License permits the generation of images on behalf of many Content Owners. The "Content Owner" is the overall source of the information being presented at a given conference.
Purchasing a Consultant Subscription License entitles you to support and all upgrades during the year after purchase.

The Conference-CD search engine works most efficiently on CD-ROMs where the large search database files can be accessed quickly.
PHDCC makes no representation that the image loaded to the web is suitable for
viewing via a modem connection. In particular, the search engine database can be
sizeable and incur an extended download time. A server-based search engine technology
may be made available at a future date.
If you purchase a Professional Subscription license, please also email your required brand name to [email protected] and we will send you a brand file by return.
