So I was reading the license agreement and Section 4 Paragraph 2 basically stops a developer from developing anything for the web that a player could host.
"Developer shall not a tie a Player’s access to, or use of, the Application to the purchase of any other product or service, "
At first I figure it would prevent everything, since a player MUST purchase a computer to use a any product a developer creates. But, the player should have a computer.
However, if I develop something that has to be hosted, then the player MUST purchase a hosting “service” and if I follow the license to the law, I can’t develop an app that would require a player to purchase a hosting “service”. So if we are going to develop something web based, the developer has to host the application if we follow the license agreement.
I know the license was intended on preventing the developer from forcing the player to use another product or service created by the developer, but as it’s stated, it blocks the developer from developing anything that the player would need to purchase any product or any service. Whether its a generic application that can be hosted with any hosting “service”, or an add-on for a clan specific hosting “service”, or an add-on for a more robust but non-free content management “product”, all these things have nothing to do with the developer, but the license bans them because they are tied to the players use of the web application.
Am I missing something and don’t tell me that’s not what they mean, but that’s what the license agreement states which overrides what they “mean” because the license agreement is what we agree to abide by.
