Hello
I have a question  about code extraction and license.

I'm using MVC complete, but on server side I'm not using any wrappers. Just code related to parsing request e.g. from grid. Nothing to generate javascript.

Because of that I would like to extract code related to that part like:
DataSourceRequest,
Extension -> ToDataSourceResult

I would also like extend extensions to support async (ToDataSourceResultAsync) for entity framework 6+

I know there is behind a bit more classes and methods.

My question is if I can do that without breaking license. And if yes, is there any place I can put such extracted code to share with other licensed Kendo users.

Kind Regards
Marcin

Hello Marcin,

If you are inheriting from our classes and extending them with functionality - that is acceptable under our EULA as long as you hold a Kendo UI license. If you take our source code and change it (not just extending what we have below) then it all falls under that clause that we (Telerik) own your changes. Overall though, this is OK as long as you keep keep it to yourself or internally to the company, that you don't share any of our source code (which we already mention in our standard licenses) and anyone using these custom classes would also need to be licensed. I believe you should have seen this clause in our EULA - you need to make sure that the dll files are locked if you re-distribute your product to end users.

If you would like to work on your own implementation you can share it here: http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library

Let me know if you need any further help.

Best regards,
