How to license NNTPCACHE for your commercial / government / site
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
0. If you are upgrading from an old nntpcache license then the
upgrade fee is n/3, where n is the number of years since
your last license. So during the first year
upgrades are free, during the second year 1/3 the cost, etc.
1. Work out how many users your site has. You will probably
want to artificially increase this number if you expect
it to grow in the future so you don't unintentionally
break the license conditions. This figure is the actual
number of users site-wide (e.g wc /etc/passwd or ypcat
passwd|wc), NOT the number of concurrent NNTPCache users.
Don't worry, it is presumed that only a minority of
network users use news regularly. The figures reflect
this expectation. What we're trying to work out is the
approximate size of the network user base.
We calculate the license size in this fashion because
other models would dramatically increase compliance costs
or prevent interesting network topologies.
Organisations usually know (or can easily work out),
the number of network users they have, but introducing
a user accounting system for just for news would be
be odious as would limiting the number or configuration
of servers.
You can run as many NNTPCache machines as you want. In
*any* network configuration you want. If NNTPCache was
licensed on a per-machine or concurrent user basis, then
this would be impossible.
2. Choose the appropriate site license for your site:
TYPE $US $AUS*
Single user $10 $15
Under 10 users $50 $70
Under 100 users $120 $190
Under 500 users $300 $450
Under 1000 users $500 $750
Under 5000 users $1500 $2272
Under 10000 users $3000 $4545
Over 10000 users negotiable+ negotiable+
* Note than you can only pay in Australian dollars if your organisation
is headquartered in Australia or New-Zealand.
+ If no fee is mutally negotiated, then the fee shall be $3000 USD per
ten thousand users.
3. Make your payment as follows:
i) Fill out the following and send it off (see iii)
License type ____________________ (see above)
Cost of license ________ (In dollars)
Payment type _____________________ (cheque drawn on an Australian
bank, international money order, EFT
VISA, Master or Bankcard)
Name/Company ___________________ (On the card/cheque/money order/EFT)
Credit card # ____ ____ ____ ____ (if credit card)
Card Expiry date __/__/__ (if credit card)
Currency ___ ($US or $AUS)
Email address ___________________ (e.g currierbell@isp.com)
Company / site ___________________ (that the license is to be made
out to. e.g Stone Head Systems)
ii) Make the transaction payable to:
a) In the case of a cheque / money order:
Australian National Cognitive Facility
WE WILL NOT ACCEPT INTERNATIONAL CHEQUES, UNLESS
SPECIFICALLY NEGOTIATED. We'd like to be able
to accept international cheques but the
banking fees and paperwork are unbelievable.
b) In the case of an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT):
Please tell us what part of the world you are
in and the name of your bank and we will provide
you with an appropriate SWIFT/BSB number. This
is usually the least painful method if you have
access to a modern banking system.
iii) Send the license request...
a) In the case of a cheque or international money
order, land/air mail to:
Australian National Cognitive Facility
PO BOX 4080
Melbourne University 3052
Australia
b) in the case of a credit card, email to:
nntpcache-license@nntpcache.com
Or you can FAX to:
+61-3-9416-2966 (ACNF)
Or for the truly depraved, snail mail to:
Australian National Cognitive Facility
PO BOX 4080
Melbourne University 3052
Australia
