1505.2 Limited Redistribution
152a) Nokia grants Licensee a non-exclusive, royalty-free right to
153   reproduce and distribute the object code form of Redistributables
154   (listed in Appendix 1, Section 1) for execution on the specified
155   Platforms, excluding the Deployment Platforms. Copies of
156   Redistributables may only be distributed with and for the sole
157   purpose of executing Applications permitted under this Agreement
158   that Licensee has created using the Licensed Software. Under no
159   circumstances may any copies of Redistributables be distributed
160   separately. This Agreement does not give Licensee any rights to
161   distribute any of the parts of the Licensed Software listed in
162   Appendix 1, Section 2, neither as a whole nor as parts or snippets

165b) Licensee may not distribute, transfer, assign or otherwise dispose
166   of Applications and/or Redistributables, in binary/compiled form,
167   or in any other form, if such action is part of a joint software
168   and hardware distribution, except as provided by a separate runtime
169   distribution license with Nokia or one of its authorized
170   distributors.  A joint hardware and software distribution shall be
171   defined as either:
173   (i) distribution of a hardware device where, in its final end user
174       configuration, the main user interface of the device is

176       a commercial version of a Qt or Qt-based product, and depends
177       on the Licensed Software or an open source version of any Qt or
178       Qt-based software product; or
180   (ii) distribution of the Licensed Software with a device designed
181        to facilitate the installation of the Licensed Software onto
182        the same device where the main user interface of such device
183        is provided by Application(s) created by Licensee or others,
184        using a commercial version of a Qt or Qt-based product, and
185        depends on the Licensed Software.
187c) Licensee's distribution of Licensed Software and/or Modified
188   Software or Applications on Deployment Platforms requires a
189   separate distribution license from Nokia.  Notwithstanding the
190   above limitation, Licensee may distribute the Application in
191   binary/compiled form onto devices running Windows CE/Windows
192   Mobile, provided the core functionality of the device does not
193   depend on either the Licensed Software or the Application.
1955.3 Further Requirements
197The licenses granted in this Section 5 by Nokia to Licensee are
198subject to Licensee's compliance with Section 8 of this Agreement.
203Nokia or a certified auditor on Nokia's behalf, may, upon its
204reasonable request and at its expense, audit Licensee with respect to
205the use of the Licensed Software. Such audit may be conducted by mail,
206electronic means or through an in-person visit to Licensee's place of
207business.  Any such in-person audit shall be conducted during regular
208business hours at Licensee's facilities and shall not unreasonably

211audit.  If an audit reveals that Licensee is using the Licensed
212Software in a way that is in material violation of the terms of the
213Agreement, then Licensee shall pay Nokia's reasonable costs of
214conducting the audit. In the case of a material violation, Licensee
215agrees to pay Nokia any amounts owing that are attributable to the
216unauthorized use. In the alternative, Nokia reserves the right, at
217Nokia's sole option, to terminate the licenses for the Licensed
223The Licensed Software may provide links to third party libraries or
224code (collectively "Third Party Software") to implement various
225functions.  Third Party Software does not comprise part of the
226Licensed Software. In some cases, access to Third Party Software may
227be included along with the Licensed Software delivery as a convenience
228for development and testing only. Such source code and libraries may
229be listed in the ".../src/3rdparty" source tree delivered with the
230Licensed Software or documented in the Licensed Software where the
231Third Party Software is used, as may be amended from time to time, do
232not comprise the Licensed Software.  Licensee acknowledges (i) that
233some part of Third Party Software may require additional licensing of
234copyright and patents from the owners of such, and (ii) that
235distribution of any of the Licensed Software referencing any portion
236of a Third Party Software may require appropriate licensing from such
237third parties.
242The licenses granted in this Agreement for Licensee to create, modify
243and distribute Applications is subject to all of the following
244conditions: (i) all copies of the Applications Licensee creates must
245bear a valid copyright notice either Licensee's own or the copyright
246notice that appears on the Licensed Software; (ii) Licensee may not
247remove or alter any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights

252reproduction or distribution of Applications; (iv) Applications must
253be developed using a licensed, registered copy of the Licensed
254Software; (v) Applications must add primary and substantial
255functionality to the Licensed Software; (vi) Applications may not pass
256on functionality which in any way makes it possible for others to
257create software with the Licensed Software; however Licensee may use
258the Licensed Software's scripting functionality solely in order to
259enable scripting that augments the functionality of the Application(s)
260without adding primary and substantial functionality to the
261Application(s); (vii) Licensee may create Modified Software that
262breaks the source or binary compatibility with the Licensed
263Software. This includes, but is not limited to, changing the
264application programming interfaces ("API") by adding, changing or
265deleting any variable, method, or class signature in the Licensed
266Software, the inter-process QCop specification, and/or any
267inter-process protocols, services or standards in the Licensed
268Software libraries.  To the extent that Licensee breaks source or
269binary compatibility with the Licensed Software, Licensee acknowledges
270that Nokia's ability to provide Support may be prevented or limited
271and Licensee's ability to make use of Updates may be restricted;
272(viii) Applications may not compete with the Licensed Software; (ix)
273Licensee may not use Nokia's or any of its suppliers' names, logos, or
274trademarks to market Applications, except to state that Licensee's
275Application(s) was developed using the Licensed Software.
