    In the purchase section it says: 
    • 1 License for a single-named user.
    In the license agreement it says:  
    1.2 Scope of Use.
     The Software is licensed, not sold, on a per-seat basis. You may only allow the number of individuals in Your organization to use the Software that corresponds to the maximum number of License seats You have purchased from Telerik hereunder. This means that at any given time, the number of individuals authorized to use the Software under the License (each a “Licensed Developer”) cannot exceed the number of License seats that You have purchased from Telerik and for which You have paid Telerik all applicable License Fees pursuant to this Agreement. The Software is in “use” on a computer when it is loaded into temporary memory (i.e. RAM) or installed into permanent memory (e.g. hard disk or other storage device) of that computer for development purposes. Your Licensed Developers may install the Software on multiple machines, so long as the Software is not being used simultaneously for development purposes at any given time by more Licensed Developers than You have License seats...

    The first seems to mean that if someone takes over GUI development in a project, we need a new license, the second seems to imply it's like a floating license and only the number of users, no matter who they are, must not exceed the number of licenses.

    Which is it?

    Hello David,

    Thank you for reaching out.
    I will try to summarize the basic points:

    Our licensing is based per developer seat indeed - one developer license can be used by one developer only. The developer who is allowed to use the license can change over time (e.g. a developer leaves the company and is replaced by a new one). The controls can be installed on more than one machine and can be used on unlimited number of applications as long as only one licensed developer uses them in design time (aka Visual Studio). This means that each developer assigned to a license can install our controls on as many machines as they like including a laptop, home desktop, work desktop, etc. 

    I hope this helps.
