    Flex 2.0 Licensing Question

    devfactory
      I have read the EULA and am still confused about how the licensing will work for this product.

      I am considering using Flex 2.0 to create SWF files that would become part of a piece of software that I would be developing and reselling to businesses.

      Traditionally SWF files are incorporated into a web site that either a company has purchased a Flash license or has had a consultant who has purchased a Flash license create.

      How will the licensing work for those of us who wish to use Flex 2.0 as a platform to create an application to then redistribute for Company X, Company Y, and Company Z to then use as either their website, or a subset of their website?

      For clarity I would not be redistributing Flex 2.0, only the SWF created. What are my restrictions? Do any restrictions scale in the event that I sell hundreds of thousands of copies?

          There are no restrictions on the SWFs you would recreate. You are free to
          incorporate them into a web site, software product, etc.

          If you want to build a product that incorporates Flex Data Services, that
          would require an OEM agreement, as would including the SDK itself.
