    licensing

      Can I use a desktop version of InDesign as the backend of a web to print application or do I need the server product?

      Would the desktop license allow users to access the website via the internet or only from the local network?

      If only permitted via the local network, do I need a desktop license for each user who can access the website?

      The website gathers information which is then used to populate the templates using the SDK, exports to pdf  and allows the users to download the pdf files.

          This forum is not the best place to ask for legal advice or for assistence interpretting the terms of Adobe's licensing agreements, which like all such agreements, may be written in ways that appear more favorable to the authors than might be pemitted by the laws that govern enforcement of the license. It especially matters where you are on the planet. Consult competant legal counsel.

           

          The CS5.5 EULA is available at http://www.adobe.com/products/eulas/pdfs/Gen_WWCombined-20110105_1512.pdf, as linked from http://adobe.com/go/eulas.

          The EULA is pretty clear; it says this usage is not permitted at all, and that you must license InDesign Server.

           

          Sorry.
