4. Purchasing Notes

For the software described above, users usually need only to buy the media and documentation (where available).

The fact that users do not have to pay for the software licence does not mean that it can be freely copied. Each copy must be licensed and registered with IT Services. The licence figures recorded in the registration database can then be used to decide whether to continue the central funding of a particular software package. Users taking unregistered copies could jeopardize funding in the future.
