How To License the
After several organizations have requested permission
to copy the Universal Troubleshooting Process into their training material,
we have come up with a licensing policy based on these two principles:
Universal Troubleshooting Process
To accomplish these seemingly contradictory principles,
we license the Universal Troubleshooting Process on a case by case basis.
In every case we will make the UTP license price small in relation to your
training course budget. Unlike some of our competitors, we would prefer
a small license fee from many customers than to strike it rich with a few
The material is so important it must be made available,
without economic hardship, to any organization wishing to incorporate it
in their training efforts.
The material is much too valuable to be given away,
or bartered away for "links" or "references".
What We License
This is a non-exclusive license to use Universal
Troubleshooting Process materials within a scope, on a specified medium,
during a time period. In no way is this to be construed as a transfer of
ownership, a right to sell or give away the material outside the licenses
scope, medium or time period. In all cases, Steve Litt retains sole right
to distribute the Universal Troubleshooting Process material, outside of
your license scope, medium and licensing period. This means that:
We absolutely do not allow Universal Troubleshooting
Process material to be copied to an Internet Website other than Troubleshooters.Com.
To do so would make the licensee a world-wide distributor of the material.
If you need access to this material on your website, please link to it.
Of course, there is no charge to link to our material.
We will not license the material to be published
in electronic form, including intranet, lan, floppy, or CD, unless the
licensee provides an acceptable affirmative copy protection program. Due
to increased risks and administration costs, the license fees for electronically
distributed media will be significantly higher.
Our preference is that you distribute the licensed
material on paper.
On any media, scope and period, the following must
be prominently displayed with the licensed material:
Steve Litt's copyright notice, Copyright (C) 1998
by Steve Litt.
A "do not copy" notice.
The fact that the material comes from website Troubleshooters.Com.
The URL http://www.troubleshooters.com
