Wacom has been selling Wacom Signature Tablets which are used for signature capture capability, and has been aware that in order to encourage wider use of such Signature Tablets by the relevant end users it is important for a wide variety of application software for such Signature Tablets to become available to such users in the market.
Wacom has recently developed a Software Development Kit, called Signature SDK, which would enable a user of Wacom Products, including such Signature Tablets, and/or a software developer to develop, assemble, use, distribute and license application software for such Wacom Products and wishes that such application software be widely used by the relevant end users by a reasonable licensing arrangement.
You as Licensee, either a user of Signature Tablets or a software developer, have expressed a desire to use and evaluate the Signature SDK in order to determine whether to enter into a separate commercial license agreement to use the Signature SDK to develop, assemble, use, distribute and license such application software for commercial purposes. Wacom understands that you as Licensee will combine components from the Signature SDK with other computer program(s) independently developed or procured by you, solely for use with Wacom Products. To assist with the evaluation process, Wacom has developed an Evaluation Version of the Signature SDK.
In order to accommodate the desire expressed by you as Licensee as set forth above, Wacom is willing to license the Evaluation Version Signature SDK to you without any compensation and on other terms and conditions set forth in this License Agreement.
You agree that if the result of the above evaluation proves to be positive, you will notify Wacom regarding Licensee’s intent to enter into a full license agreement for the Signature SDK. As soon as Wacom receives such intent from you, Wacom or its authorized Affiliate will offer a full license for the Signature SDK.
