Hey guys,

I'm revising an application that is approaching release. Just to play it safe: What is an example of an Example of a "valid copyright message" as discusseed in the EULA? I obviously don't want to copyright my entire application under Telerik 2009, so I was wondering what would suffice?

Currently, I have:

GUI powered by RadControls for Winforms © Telerik 2009

Does this fulfill the requirement? I'm pretty confident it does - just want to play it safe.

Hi Cameron Hart,

Thank you for your inquiry.

Yes, the below message would suffice. You only need to include it in a conspicuous place, viewable by the end-users, like an "About" box, for instance.

I guess you have already taken the rest of the redistribution requirements into account, but I would like to mention them here just in case In order to legally redistribute our software, you also need to ensure that:

1. Your application is adding significant primary functionality to our controls.
2. You distribute the SOFTWARE, in object code form only.
3. You ensure that the SOFTWARE is not distributed in any form that allows it to be reused by any application other than your solution.
4. You duly inform your customers that they are not allowed to use the SOFTWARE independently from your solution. For use of the SOFTWARE in design–time (i.e. within a development environment such as Microsoft Visual Studio) your customers need to purchase the appropriate number of Developer Licenses from TELERIK.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Best wishes,
