A. LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO SOFTWARE ACQUIRED FROM OEM PARTNER
I. Grant of license
This Agreement permits you to use one copy of the Software acquired with this license on any single computer ("OEM License"), provided the Software is in use on only one computer at any given time. If you have acquired a multiple license for the Software, then at any one time you may have in use up to as many copies of the Software as you have licenses. The Software is "in use" on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory or installed into the permanent memory (e.g. hard disk, CD ROM, or other storage device) of that computer, except that a copy installed on a network server for the sole purpose of distribution to other computers is not considered "in use". If the anticipated number of users of the Software might exceed the authorized number of applicable licenses, then you must have a reasonable mechanism or process in place to assure that the number of concurrent uses of the Software does not exceed the number of licenses.
The OEM License granted herein is only valid if acquired as a bundle with CD/DVD-Recording hardware.
The Software is owned by Nero or its licensors and is protected by copyright laws, international treaty provisions, and other national laws. You agree that you have no right, title or interest in the Software, except as set forth in Subsection I. If the Software is not copy protected you may either
(a) make one copy of the Software solely for backup or archival purposes, or
(b) transfer the Software to a single hard disk provided you keep the original solely for backup or archival purposes.

Should you purchase a software upgrade to a newer version, you will be entitled to use both the originally purchased Nero version and the upgrade as standalone products in accordance with the provisions of this software licensing agreement. The entitlement to use the upgrade as a standalone product is, however, contingent on your continued possession of the originally purchased Nero software. This upgrade arrangement refers exclusively to all Nero upgrades.

The license terms and conditions applicable to Software purchased from Nero or a Nero Distributor are exactly the same as set forth in Section A above, except that Subsection I (Grant of license) and Subsection IV (Warranties) and Subsection V (liability for consequential damages) shall read as follows:
I. Grant of license
This Agreement permits you to use one copy of the Software acquired with this license on any single computer, provided the Software is in use on only one computer at any given time. If you have acquired a multiple license for the Software, then at any one time you may have in use up to as many copies of the Software as you have licenses. The Software is "in use" on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory or installed into the permanent memory (e.g. hard disk, CD ROM, or other storage device) of that computer, except that a copy installed on a network server for the sole purpose of distribution to other computers is not considered "in use". If the anticipated number of users of the Software might exceed the authorized number of applicable licenses, then you must have a reasonable mechanism or process in place to assure that the number of concurrent uses of the Software does not exceed the number of licenses.
(1) Defects in the Software supplied including the manuals and other documentation shall be corrected by Nero within the warranty period of two years from delivery following appropriate notification by the user. This shall take the form of rectification of defects or replacement delivery at the user's choice.
(2) Should Nero not be prepared or able to effect this rectification or replacement delivery, or should this take longer than a suitable deadline set by the user or fail for other reasons, the user shall be entitled to withdraw from the Contract or to demand that the sale be canceled or the purchased price reduced. Failure to rectify the defects or effect replacement delivery shall only be assumed if Nero has been afforded ample opportunity to effect the rectification or replacement delivery without the desired success being achieved, if the rectification or replacement delivery is not possible or if it is refused or unacceptably delayed by Nero, or if the rectification of defects has already been performed unsuccessfully twice. The right of the user to demand compensation under § 437 of the German Civil Code remains unaffected.
(3) The user is aware that it is not possible to create software programs with zero defects. Nero shall only warrant against software defects that significantly reduce the Software's value or suitability for use as stipulated in the contract.
(4) It is the responsibility of the user to determine the destination for use of the software and to select the suitable hardware/computer types. Nero shall not be liable for this.
(5) Unless otherwise specified in III., Nero shall only be liable for damage to the Software supplied itself; in particular Nero shall accept no liability for loss of data or other indirect losses.
If failure of the Software is the result of accident, abuse, or misapplication, this warranty shall be void. Any replacement Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty. NERO MAKES NO WARRANTIES TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
III. Liability for consequential damages
Nero is liable for damages due to lack of property, especially for violating third party copyrights. Nero does not accept liability for any offences against this agreement caused by negligence, except from offences that caused physical injury. Legal claims concerning product liability facing Nero due to Regulation 85/374/EEC will be granted and are not subject of this agreement.
C. TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO ALL LICENSES
I. Third Party Disclaimer and Limitations
a.) WM-DRM: Content providers are using the Microsoft digital rights management technology for Windows Media (“WM-DRM”) to protect the integrity of their content (“Secure Content”) so that their intellectual property, including copyright, in such content is not misappropriated. Portions of this Software and other third party applications (“WM-DRM Software”) use WM-DRM to transfer or play Secure Content. If the WM-DRM Software’s security has been compromised, owners of Secure Content (“Secure Content Owners”) may request that Microsoft revoke the WM-DRM Software’s right to copy, display, transfer and/or play Secure Content. Revocation does not alter the WM-DRM Software’s ability to play unprotected content. A list of revoked WM-DRM Software is sent to your computer whenever you download a license for Secure Content from the Internet. Microsoft may, in conjunction with such license, also download revocation lists onto your computer on behalf of Secure Content Owners. Secure Content Owners may also require you to upgrade some of the WM-DRM components distributed with this Software (“WM-DRM Upgrades”) before accessing their content. When you attempt to play such content, WM-DRM Software built by Microsoft will notify you that a WM-DRM Upgrade is required and then ask for your consent before the WM-DRM Upgrade is downloaded. WM-DRM Software used by third parties may do the same. If you decline the upgrade, you will not be able to access content that requires the WM-DRM Upgrade; however, you will still be able to access unprotected content and Secure Content that does not require the upgrade.
