Individual Cascoly Shareware programs are defined as containing all the material listed in the PACKING.LST text file. If any files listed in the PACKING.LST text file, or the PACKING.LST file itself, are missing, then the package is not complete and distribution is forbidden. o A Cascoly Shareware package - including all related program files and documentation files - CANNOT be modified in any way and must be distributed as a complete package, without exception. (Either the ZIP or self extracting EXE file must be used. This is the sole exception for modification -- you can use an alternate archiving program.)

The Contractor/manufacturer is Cascoly Software, 4528 36th NE, Seattle, WA 98105. o Rack Vendors & CD-ROMs, please note additional restrictions below. All rights not expressly granted here are reserved to Cascoly Software. The following additional information and restrictions are intended for Shareware Distributors, Disk Vendors, and Computer Clubs who wish to distribute Cascoly Shareware. ASP Associate (Disk Vendor) Member Information: ----------------------------------------------- Vendors who are ASP Associate Members in good standing are hereby given permission to distribute Cascoly Shareware in accordance with the Distribution Restrictions listed above. ASP Associate Members (often called "ASP Approved Vendors") in good standing do not need to request permission to distribute this package. ASP vendors who use rack vending or who wish to publish our programs as part of a CD-ROM, please note the further restrictions outlined below. This permission is in effect until or unless we notify you otherwise, in writing. ASP Vendor Members - Disk Sets: ------------------------------- ASP Vendor Members who wish to distribute Cascoly Shareware as part of a collection (such as PsL's MegaDisk set) may do so provided that all the other restrictions are met. Other (Non-ASP) Disk Vendor Information: ---------------------------------------- Shareware Distributors and Disk Vendors who are not ASP Associate Members, but who wish to distribute Cascoly Shareware need to comply with the following additional restrictions. In order for us to ensure that only current versions are distributed, we require that you send us a letter requesting permission to distribute any of our products. You may not list any of our products in advertisements, catalogs, or other literature which describes our products as "FREE SOFTWARE". Shareware is "Try-Before-You-Buy" software, it is not free. Please include in your letter, a copy of your catalog. If you are a new vendor, and no catalog is available, we need your written assurance that the ASP guidelines for vendors are being met -- ie, your catalog must emphasize that users must register and pay for shareware they receive from you. Other (Non-ASP) Vendors - Disk Sets: ------------------------------------ Vendors (non-ASP Vendor Members) who wish to distribute any Cascoly Shareware as part of a collection (such as PsL's MegaDisk set) must obtain written permission from Cascoly Software prior to beginning such a distribution. Computer Clubs and User Groups : ------------------------------ Computer Clubs and User Groups wishing to add Cascoly Shareware packages to their disk library may do so in accordance with the Distribution Restrictions listed above. Disk-of-the-Month (or Subscription) Distribution: ------------------------------------------------- If you would like to distribute Cascoly Shareware as a Disk-of-the-Month, or as part of a subscription or monthly service, then the following restrictions apply: ASP Associate (Disk Vendor) Members in good standing are hereby given permission to distribute Cascoly Shareware under the Disk-of-the-Month style of distribution. Others (non-ASP Members) must contact us in advance to ensure that you have the most current version of the software. You cannot use a Disk-of-the-Month distribution to use up your inventory of old (out of date) disks. Only current versions may be shipped as Disk-of- the-Month disks. ****** Attention All RACK VENDORS & CD-ROM publishers ******* ------------------------------------------------------------------ It has come to our attention that shareware racks may be hurting Cascoly Software sales because shareware racks may compete with the low-priced retail racks on which our products are sold, and which pay us a royalty. Obviously this creates a problem for us. So starting today (21 Aug 1992), I must prohibit all Cascoly, including both current games and our forthcoming titles, from being sold on shareware racks of any kind. Please understand that this step is taken purely to protect royalties we are earning. It boils down to the fact that our royalties are much greater than sales we see from shareware sold on racks. Cascoly requests a minimum of $.10 royalty per program sold for any rack sales, payable quarterly. To minimize bookkeeping, Cascoly also licenses disks in advance. You can license any combination of Cascoly programs, in lots of 500 for a 20% discount (ie, $40/ 500 programs). This discounted payment is due in advance and is non-refundable. After each lot of 500 disks is sold, a new license prepayment is required. Please send a SASE to Cascoly to receive copies of the royalty agreement. This affects CDROM and rack sales of shareware only, not catalog sales, shareware sold at computer swap meets, BBS distribution, etc. We are pleased when any vendor carries our shareware in catalogs, or sells disks containing Cascoly products in any way other than rack sales in retail locations. Please Help Us Serve You Better: -------------------------------- We would appreciate copies of anything you print regarding Cascoly Shareware. Please send us a copy of any reviews, articles, catalog descriptions, or other information you print or distribute regarding Cascoly Shareware. Thank you for your time and assistance and for supporting the shareware marketing concept.
