What is Shareware?

Shareware products provide a way to obtain and evaluate software for a fixed period, giving users the opportunity to try a program on their own computer before buying it. While unregistered shareware products are copyrighted, and the copyright holder retains all rights, the author specifically grants a user the right to freely evaluate and distribute the program, with limited exceptions. After using an evaluation version for the defined trial period, the user must purchase a licensed copy or remove the evaluation version from their system.

We own the copyright trade mark, trade names, patents and other intellectual property rights subsisting in or used in connection with the enclosed software including all documentation and manuals and all other copies which you are authorised to make by this agreement ('the software').
