We got some issues regarding Kendo UI license.
we act as a subcontractor for another company(partner company) and We also  currently have a Kendo UI Complete commercial license. 
In other words, We are developing the integrated software including Kendo UI Professional and this software will be distributed by partner company after finishing our development. (The development using Kendo UI is done entirely on our side).

1. Commercial Redistribution
Can the partner company redistribute this software(using Kendo UI license we have)?

if the partner company is able to redistribute this software,
In what cases(below) this partner company should have a license for Kendo UI?
 a. The partner company needs to do additional development or maintenance of integrated S/W provided by other companies(like our company)
 b. The partner company does not further develop or maintain this software

2. Transfer License
If our partner company that we provide software(using Kendo UI) requires license, Can we transfer the license we have purchased to our partner?

If the license can be transferred to our partner, can we get information about how procedure works?

3. Purchasing Licenses based on the number of developers
We know that we need to buy licenses according to the number of developers who use Kendo UI.
How can we prove to Telerik that we purchased licenses normally about the number of developers?


Thanks in advance for your support. Any additional information you consider relevant for the situation above is most welcome.

Hi there,

1. The licensing layout is quite simple actually. When developing using our Kendo UI licenses anyone that will actually be using the controls in their development environment, whether it be your company or your partner company, is required to own their own license. The apps built using our tools can be redistributed as long as our source code is not exposed. Anyone in either company who will actually have a hand in the creation of an application using our Kendo controls must own or be assigned to a license so that you are not breaking our license agreement. if the partner is not going to be using the controls to develop than they will not need a license themselves, only those actually using our controls are required to have their own license to be installed on their own machine.

2. Licenses can be easily transferred from developer to developer depending on who will be working with the controls. When licenses are purchased they are all purchased under 1 license holder's account in which this license holder can then assign the licenses as necessary to the proper developers who will need access to the controls. The license holder can assign and re-assign at any point in time to change the license holder. This is all done entirely through he licensed holder's account page on our site where they can manage the licenses and the users.

3. No proof is necessary to prove that you have purchased the correct number of licenses. We are able to see if licenses are being abused as they are often passed around for a short period of time and the download history on multiple machines is quite prevalent. This is not something that we verify with you before purchasing your licenses however.
