for PowerBASIC - license agreement
Goal of the development of PBSOUND for PowerBASIC was and is, to give you
an efficient and stable Toolbox. With todays stand in technology it is not
possible to create completely error free software. I will try to remove
all bugs with all of my possibilities and information, but I can not
garante for bug free software and can not be made responsible for any
damage created by bugs in my software.
You obtain the right to use PBSOUND by paying a registration fee.
PBSOUND for PowerBASIC is Shareware for private, noncommercial use, meaning
that PBSOUND may be tested for free, without limits, and with full support.
Limitatitions in the Sharewareversion
The only limitation is a Payment- and Motivationorder. There are no
limitations in the fnctions/features!! PBSOUND for PowerBASIC can be
used as long as you want.
PBSOUND is not Shareware for commercial use and for officials, schools,
clubs, unions, political partys and all other juridical persons!!!
The registration fee is due from start of use on. There are different fees
than for the Shareware:

The author is not obligated to develop further Versions of PBSOUND. This
is especially true for translation of the Toolbox into other Basic
languages. Further on the author is not obligated to release future versions
PBSOUND for PowerBASIC may and should be spread in noncommercial ways in
unchanged Form (meaning in the original archives) as you want. Distribution
by Shareware-Vendors is only allowed when the Copyfee does not exceed 5.- for
one copy. Any other way of distribution as well as the bundling with other
products is only allowed with a direct, written authorization by the Author.
The Musicfile contained in PBSOUND do not seem to lie under the Copyright as
I see it. They were taken from the Shareware- and Public Domain area. Should,
even though the selection was made very carefully, any Copyrights be broken,
please tell me immediately.
The affected parts will then be removed in the future Versions of PBSOUND
or the Copyright will be forefilled in other ways (Payment og Usage-fees
