SDK Terms

January 12, 2011 - 4:40am #1

Hey,

Am I right in thinking that the current SDK terms suggest that Qualcomm have the right to any derivative works for apps entered into the competition?

I understand Q have the right to use the apk entered as they see fit which doesn't bother me but slightly worried that in entering the competition I am giving Q all rights to my application including for Q to make derivative works of it.

I may just be being completly paranoid here :)

Cheers,

Lee

I would like to commercialize my application. When can I expect the SDK to be out of beta?

You can send information about your application to

, and I'll forward it to the right people :) We'll want to know the scope of the project, current progress, etc.

Thank you very much for your answer. Yes, I read through the license agreement text and came to a similar conclusion, but as a not-native speaker had some difficulties to go through this law lingo. ;)

Now: how hard is it to get a written permission and what is the best way to do it, i.e. an email address please?

thanks a lot in advance

I suggest reading through the license agreement. It is included in the installer for the base SDK, and is available as a text file in the Unity extension (license.txt). It is also available online here: https://ar.qualcomm.com/legal/license/

The general rule is that during the beta you cannot distribute or commercialize your application without written permission from Qualcomm. Once the SDK is out of beta this restriction will be lifted.

What are general conditions of usage of the AR SDK for Android?
- if I want to create an application for myself
- if I want to create an app for somebody for free
- if I want to create a commerciall app and sell it?

please advise

Qualcomm has the right to show off the applications submitted to the competition, but we do not have the rights to any derivative works of that application. This means that you can commercialize it later on, subject to the restrictions outlined in the beta license agreement. In short, during the beta you need to ask Qualcomm for written permission before commercializing/distributing your application. Once the SDK is out of beta this restriction will be lifted.
