SonoBat License Policy

We issue licenses to people, rather than machines. This permits installation on more than one machine to enable use in different locations, for example a laptop in the field and a desktop for office use. But distinct installations used by distinct users with potential simultaneous operation warrants additional licenses. Please consider our software as you would an item of hardware that would require more than one unit to operate in more than one place at the same time for different users.

We consider it fair use for you to move your SonoBat installation among your machines, or for example to use it for viewing and vetting files on one machine while another one under your direction crunches a data set.

We thank you for supporting SonoBat with a license to support our ongoing research and development. And we like to believe that some of the social calls you record just might be the bats thanking you for the work you do.
