This may be a bit off topic for this forum as it is not a technical question. But I wanted to get some feedback on the license term. Looking at the license I'm concerned by the following statement:

2.1 SDK Internal Use License.
A. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Cisco hereby grants Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty free, and revocable license to copy and use internally the SDK solely for the purpose
of developing,extending, enhancing and testing Licensee Applications for internal use with Cisco products.
Licensee agrees not to use the SDK with any non-Cisco product or to enable others to do so. Licensee may
permit its Licensee Contractors to have access to the SDK but only to the extent required in connection withL
icensee's obligations and exercise of its rights under this Agreement and subject to all terms, conditions and
restrictions applicable to Licensee.  Licensee is liable to Cisco for any breach of any provision of this Agreementb
y a Licensee Contractor.

Does anyone have an interpretation of this statement? Obviously, many of us are considering developing commercial products using onePK. At what point and under what conditions will that be permitted.

Hi, Michael, I'll try and find someone to answer definitively on this.  However, I think the intention here is that the SDK is for use with Cisco products only.  The commercial development is allowed, but will require a commercial license independent of what is provided with the downloaded SDK.

Hi Michael,

To confirm, the onePK SDK End User License Agreement that ships by default with the onePK SDK only allows users to use the SDK to develop applications for internal use.

Users must enter into a seperate onePK Commercial License Agreement with Cisco in order to use the SDK for developing commercial products or delivering commercial services using onePK.

We are in the process of finalizing the onePK Commercial License Agreement.

Please feel free to contact me directly via email (jovoss@cisco.com) to obtain more information regarding the onePK Commercial License Agreement.

Best Regards,

John
